Simply Create : Mom saying............

For this challenge on Simply Create
you are to use any "Mom saying" on your card. 
Don't look at my card as an example because....................well you see I seam to have lost a week somewhere and at around 11 pm last night realized I needed a card to post today! So I just used the word Mom ;)  

OK so am I the only one that feels this year is flying by to fast????? 
Or am I just getting *gasp* OLD???? lol

Please stop by the Simply Create blog tomorrow and see what the rest of the DT has created by following the rules :)
This challenge runs from May 6th to May 19th

paper: su card stock, prima dp, miss:ribbon, pearls, sewing (lots!) nesties, sentiment: computer generated.

This is also for:
Do More With Less: Stitching with Alice Wertz {{another cat lover!!}}

Now Alice posted a little tip that I found very helpful :) this is what she said:
One tip that I learned was that if you use Nesties as much as I do, emboss the image after you cut them out. I always use the embossed lines as my guide when stitching and they make your circles and ovals looks perfect!

OK my circle is not perfect but close enough :) thanks for the tip Alice!!

I also used sketch # 113 on Card Patterns

On a side note: has anyone had problems after playing the oh-so-addictive game Frontier Land on FB?
I lost everything in my Simply Create folder this morning (after uploading my photo to our DT photo bucket) !!
Quickly ran a scan and 50 threats were taken off my pc!! 
I am thankful that is all I lost and not everything on my hard drive. 
Time to back it all up before it is to late as it was for 2 of my friends.

Not sure weather to take a chance and play again or not :(

ETA: went back and played a bit then re ran the problems found!! so off to clear my land! lol

P/s: My hard drive crashed in 4 months...that's a very short mean time to failure...they don't make things like they used too eh?

What a rebel you are! where did you get the idea that using the work "mom" is enought?.... I wonder... LOL
You should try foreign langauge, it sure works!
Rebel or not, your card is awesome! I love the colors and thd dp you used and that stitching is adorable.
Your take on the sketch is wonderful and the organza ribbon gives a delicate and elegant look to the whole card.
And you know what I will say about backing your files....

Hi Rose - this card is just lovely, I like the stitching you used.
Did you see the freebie on Bugaboo this week - I thought of you immediately!
I am paranoid about backing up now I have all these digi images!
