Control Freaks Mothers & Friends

It's time once again for the Tour de Freaks, and this month we are focusing on Moms, or friends, or moms of friends, or friends who are like a mom.... any of them! We have a small group today, only five of us on the tour. Did you just land here from Wendy's blog? Weren't her projects just the sweetest?! If you click the link at the bottom of each blog, you'll go full circle and end up back here.

My Mom loves succulents, so of course I had to make a card with succulents for her for Mother's Day. The Oh So Succulent stamp set and matching dies are retiring, but I just checked and they are still available *as of the time of this post*. And here's a tip: Normally, purchasing a bundle is the better bargain, but right now the stamp set and die are deeply discounted and a MUCH better deal separately! Just sayin'.

Up next is a sneak peek at the Eastern Palace Suite that will be available for customers to preorder starting May 1st. It's a great way to get an exciting little taste of what is coming in the new annual catalog!

I love the combination of Tranquil Tide with a bit of Lemon Lime Twist. The yellow green looks really good beside the blue green. Surprisingly, Mr. Big didn't have anything to do with this card. I liked the simplicity of the stamping (with a little accent from the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers and Metallic Enamel Shapes) so much that I didn't want to use the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies. Shocking, I know!

Up next is Melissa Davies' blog, RubberFUNatics. You don't want to miss what she has to share!


  1. Oh Cindy!! I absolutely love your succulents card!! I want the stamps and dies, right now!!! I wonder if I can sell that body part today!!🤗

    1. Susie, you made me LOL! I was surprised that it isn't being carried over, because I LOVE it, too!


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
