felt flowers mother's day card

Hi!  Today I have another mother's day card to share!  I picked up some adhesive backed felt a little while ago with this idea in mind and I finally made a card with it.  I also used some new pp by Crate paper, I have never used pp from them before, it's interesting, has a different texture. 

I used my Stampin Up die Blossom Party to die cut the felt flowers.  Than I layed them out and marked with a pencil where I wanted them and stamped each stem from Blooming Button Bits individualy.  I am entering this card also into the Simon Says Stamp challenge of Button, Bows and Bling.  I do have 2 out of three and couldn't figure out if I needed all 3, if so please forgive me!

Last night Ariel had her dance recital.  She takes tap and ballet once a week.  I think she must have been quite nervous as behind the stage she sat quietly in a chair and didn't run around with the other kids!  She did quite well and was so cute!  I love the costume because it's something that Ariel needed, she has a lot of dress up clothes but not a disney princess dress yet. It's nice to be done dance now for the summer, and we just have piano left!  Here she is:

Poor Carter wanted to join in on all the kids dancing.  It was only an hour show but we arrived early to get a good seat.  My mom tried feeding him the whole show but he kept trying to make a break for it!  At the end of the show he finally made it to the frount and danced his little heart out, it was so cute but I missed taking a picture!  Afterwards we went and got donuts as a treat.  There were some donuts still left this morning and while I was getting Ariel ready for school Carter climbed up on the island and got one:

Doesn't he look so proud of himself and happy?  And he took the best donut too!  (Please excuse my messy house!) When I took him down and cleaned him up his cry was so sad that I let him finish it.  I hope you know it was a treat, I try to feed my kids healthy.  Yesterday Carter ate a lot of raw veggies, carrots, cucumber, yellow and red pepper, I am so pleased as he isn't even 2 yet!

Until next time, hope you have a super day!
