Mom your Amazing!

Hello Crafty Friends!  Happy Monday!  The start to yet another week!  This week has fun things in store and so far no not fun things (you know like the dentist!)  May will be here soon!  We enjoyed a lovely weekend, a big birthday party on Saturday.  The weather finally turned for the better and we were able to go for a nice long walk to the donut shop nearby for a treat!  And visiting some local parks!  With our move we can now walk to two decent parks in just a few minutes, first time living closer to parks!  Yesterday both kids played outside for hours with the a new friend the neighbor girl who is the same age as Ariel!  After a really long winter you really appreciate that!  It was a dream to put them to bed last night they were so tired!

I've started making Mother's Day cards!  With Mother's Day less than two weeks away it's on my mind and I am getting started on my gifts and cards!  After making my last card the sentiment You are Simply Amazing I thought to myself, if I add Mom to this it would be perfect for Mother's Day so yesterday I took a few moments while the kids were outside and sat down and made this card:

Had an idea and without stressing threw this card together! I used paper from My Minds Eye's  Collectable Memorable 6 by 6 pad, I love floral paper but it doesn't make it's way to my cards that much, not sure why!  But this time I decided to go with it!  Die cut my new polariod die by Lawn Fawn and stamped the sentiment on it.  Die cut letters from Hero Arts Uppercase Alphabet Fancy die!  Stamped the Scalloped  Flower by Hero Arts along with tropical leaves!  Here's a close up:

Finished making this card and although I had many ideas for more the kids needed me!  Oh well I did make another card when the kids went to bed early (yay!)

I am entering this card into Simon Says Stamps's Anything Goes challenge!  Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win April's RAK featured on the sidebar!
