Mothers

Hello~

In honor of Mother's Day, I have created a card to share for the occasion. 
I started this card by piecing together some patterned paper and adhering to my kraft card base. A length of vintage pink seam binding was added and tied in a fussy bow dressed up with a button and twine.

Today I used a sentiment about mother's which was layered and mounted on several different Spellbinders dies and mounted slightly off to the right of the card front to allow room for the beautiful fussy bow.

I am personally joining in these challenges.

Thank you so much for visiting me! I hope you have a BEAUTIFUL weekend! We have a very busy one ahead. We are starting tomorrow with taking the short stack to the Home Depot Kids Work Shop followed by his ice skating lessons, back home for much needed home improvement and garden work. Then it's on to an afternoon invite by friends of ours from Hawaii that's hosting a Cinco de Mayo party. Sunday has us going to a minor league baseball game which my son has earned through their book club. It will be fun and exhausting, so I am not sure I will be getting crafty!

Ta Ta for now!
