Mother's Day Tall Flower!

Hello!  And a happy Tuesday to you!  I can't believe how long of a day it's been!  Sleep is calling me, but first I am going to watch a PVR'd (like a DVR) episode of Glee!!!  Oh and I am feeling mighty proud of myself I fed the kids dinner, let them play outside, bathed them, fed them snack, read stories and got them in bed by 8!  I can never manage by 8 it's usually 8:15 to 8:30!  Chad had to work tonight so I did it all myself!  A friend stopped by tonight also and we enjoyed a latte I made for us!  It's always nice to have a chat with a girl friend!

I wanted to say thank you so much for all the wonderful comments I received over the card set I made for my close friend that I shared yesterday!  :>

Today I wanted to pop in with a card I made for the current Hero Arts challenge, I went with the paper layering part of it and made a Mother's Day card.  This is my second Mother's Day card so far, but technically my first remember this card, Carter took a cat's eye and inked up the inside!  He really loves those little inks and I have to watch him!  I am going to try to save it by mounting the front...  Here is my card, I really enjoyed stamping on the pattern paper and cutting it out:

This card has been picked up for publication!
