Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's out there!  It's a beautiful day and I am ever so thankful to be blessed with the opportunity to be a mother to my incredible daughter.  She keeps me laughing and always has a hug when I need one.  Oh Lord, I thank you for allowing me to be her Mother.  She is the reason I smile!

Today we have an anything goes challenge at Sentimental Sundays.  I hope you will join in with your creativity!  Also we have a design team call if you are interested in joining our fun group!  But wait there is more!  To celebrate the anniversary, you have several chance to win a digital sentiment of your choice from Raindrop Echo Designs Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection! All you have to do is visit the participating DT members' blogs and leave a comment on their Sentimental Sundays post for this week. That means that if you visit leave a comment for  me, Ann E, Ceal, Cheryl, Chris, Joanna, LisaMelissa, Nicole, Shirley, Tameko, and Tracey, you will get a chance to win one digital sentiment set! Easy!

 I made this card for my sister.  She is also a teacher, hence the sentiment.  She knows all about it.  ;-)   We often discuss that our job is not strictly about academics.  Our maternal skills are needed frequently.  It's a soft voice to soothe, a gentle reminder to wash your hands, and a hug for those moments when they need it.  Preschool is the best! 
For my card, I used scrap papers.  I am trying to clear them out.  Some of them I am sad to see almost gone.  This is a combination of Sassafras Lass, Basic Grey, and My Minds's Eye.  The base of the card is covered with a pattern from Sass.  The red swirl is My Mind's Eye and the orange strip is Basic Grey.  The sentiment is from Raindrop Echo which you can find here.  I printed and inked the edges orange.  I colored a Making Memories glitter butterfly with my Copic and used some Kaiser Craft pearls to accent.  The ribbon was sent to me from a friend.  The rhinestones are Darice.

I used the fabulous design from this week's Card Patterns.

Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed Sunday!



Great take on the sketch.


Love the colors and CAS design! Great sketch, I have not been to Card Patterns yet so I am going to bookmark them too. Off to the next DT :)

Beautiful card! I see you are a teacher too. I recognize the things you say about your job, although I work with children a bit older. But they still need the things you mention.

Hugs, Marjan
