More Mom's Day

Another Mother's Day card.  I really thought these would sell but so far no luck... aww well guess its good I have a Mother in Law, a Mom, and a Stepmom.  At least they will have a home somewhere.  This one is all PTI as well.  The stamp sets are With Sympathy, Wedding Day, and Heartfelt Basics.  Colors are Plum pudding and spring moss.  I made a matching envelope as well.  The white is more of the linen cardstock.  
In other news: 
** I was suppose to receive my PTI package today but of course stupid UPS refuses to leave anything on my doorstep. Gawd, I am so irritated with them.  I pray I am around tomorrow to sign for it otherwise I have another late night trip to the giant UPS depot in my future.
** Last year I wrote this post.  Nearly ever google search on my site meter comes from that post.  Hilarious.  Its that time again.  I sent the hubs down to the good aquarium to get us some more feeder fish.  One is already dead.  I am sure the PETA people will be all over me again.  I don't care.   The way I figure it these guys are getting a deal, they were meant to be food but now they have a stay of execution.  Some of the fish from last year are still alive, having been adopted by the more responsible students.  The students are really looking forward to this project.  I am excited for them.
** Its been a thousand degrees here!  I am running my a/c in April!  Its crazy, but I was so hot I couldnt take it anymore.  Hoping for that cooling trend to happen soon.

I had to leave a comment on your mother's day cards first, but now I need to go read your fish story. And I have to figure out where you live that you are already running the air conditioning. We have natural air conditioning here, you're welcome to come sit with me at a lacrosse game on freezing cold metal bleachers in a light misty rain and 37 degrees anytime!

I so totally agree with you on the UPS thing!! They will leave it in my area, but it may sit in the sun, get rained on etc. That is why I prefer plain old USPS. They also deliver on saturdays! I have a HUGE mailbox, specifically so that I can receive large USPS packages and keep them dry and in the shade!
