CMIT Featured Designer Challenge

I was able to get my Mother in Law's gift and card out to her today. I made her some cards, which I know she likes them. Got some out to friends and for saturday dinner we will have another family friend. Their children are upstate and she is feeling sad, so my mom invited them. Good friends of my parents. So I made her a card also and will get her a plant to take.
Here are the two cards for my mom which also is like my mother in law with the bird. The other one is for the family friend:

I added a line of pearls by Stampin Up to the tag and ink. Makes it a bit nicer. The jar is by Papertrey Ink. Great set to have and love Mish that design the set with additions. You have to get it out. Almost all seasons have been designed for the set.
The bird is the punch by Stampin Up. Paper is Basic Grey "Curio" which I love. So romantic and vintage. Old piece of book paper and tag.
The jar card paper is by Graphic 45 and is "Once upon a Springtime". Nice set also.

Well very mother have a Happy Mother's Day and if not a mother I am sure you have nephews & nieces like me.

Thrift Store Finds

Well I headed over this am to the Thrift Store for 50% off. Always a good deal. I found some neat items. Unfortunly, I saw a woment with a awesome lamp. Would have been so neat in my office. It had a pink bowl bottom and then flowers were coming out around the blub socket. It looked as if when lite the flowers would show the thru. Small but  cute.

But look at what I found:

The cat cup is so cute and I cannot wait to put some flowers in it and on a shelf in my office. I will post a picture when done. This cat had the original price of $12.99 and I got it for 75 cents. WOW!!The green jar is going to be filled with white Sea Glass. Very heavy for 99 cents.

I found the blue measureing frame under some other items for 99 cents and the other frame is wood, which is a good size and I am going to paint it. Going to add something inside it. But good price for 75 cents.
Not too much this trip but I sure did like what I found.

Mother's Day cards tomorrow will be posted. It sure did get away from me. I thought I had another week. Boy was I wrong.
