Stencil challenge with the Girls!

Hello friends : ) I can't believe a whole week has gone by since I posted.  I knew I would be getting busy but I didn't think I would be this busy this fast!!  I hope you are all doing well and enjoying a bright and warm spring!  As I write this it is actually raining and foggy here but I guess that is what it is supposed to do in spring! : ) I sure is wonderful to see GREEN! every where rather than white!



I'm here today, as a guest of the Just Us Girls Challenge blog to challenge you!: ).  This week the challenge is Stencils!!



I created this polka dotted tribute to my "adopted" Mom from whom I inherited my love of all things girly. I went wild with the stencils inside and out : )  But Mom's motto is... you can never have too many polka dots! so I know she'll like it I hope you do too.



Here is a good joke in honor of the ladies...... 

A husband and wife were arguing about who should make the coffee.  The wife said – “the bible says the husband is to make the coffee.”  He asked “where does it say that!” So she opened her bible… right here in “Hebrews”.

heeheehee I would like to send hugs and best wishes to all my children loving friends! whether you are a Mom or not : ) you know who you are!! *wink*

Please don't forget to link up your stenciled works of art!! at JUGS.

BIG (((HUGS)))

Happy Mother's Day to you, sweet Patti! What a lovely card you've created for your adopted mom. She will love it, I'm sure. You cannot go wrong with polka dots at all and that die cut is fabulous, too. Beautiful work. Congratulations on your guest designer spot, too. Got me giggling at the joke, too. Big hugs! :)

My mom loved Polka dots too, and now so do I. In fact I kept one of her polka dotted blouses after she passed 21 years ago. Thanks for bringing a happy memory to me today on Mother's Day! Hope you have a great one too! Oh, fabulous card! ;)

I love the joke Patti and I'm surprised I didn't know where it was going before I heard the punch line. That die is gorgeous and looks heavenly with all the girly pink and polka dots.
