Happy Mothers' Day to my Mom!

I'm so thankful for my mom and the woman that she is!  I love her so much and don't know what I'd do without her! There isn't a day that goes by that I don't talk to her at least and if she lived closer, we'd probably see each other everyday too!  :)  But I made this card for her for Mothers' Day and cannot wait to give it to her!  She loved her hummingbird birthday card and I'm sure will love this one too!  (I haven't posted her birthday card, but will soon, I promise!)  :)

I'm not as half creative as my mom is (as you can see from her work on my daughter's room mural!)  She is so talented.  She works a lot and doesn't live close or else we'd probably be crafting together A LOT! :)  Well here's the card I created for her!

I used my Celebrate with Flourish cartridge for the sentiment as well as the white gel pen for accents.  I sewed one of my "gazillion" buttons on top of the paper flower & button from Creative Memories and then added two types of ribbon.

On the inside, I loved the fact that the paper was two sided and the little "sunshines" were on the inside!  I added a little paper flower with a black brad and added some black faux stitching to give the inside some detail. :)

I plan on making my mom a framed layout similar to the one I made for my m-i-l on her birthday.  My mom saw it and loved it so I figured I could make her one as well!  I'll post it as soon as it's complete!

Working on my m-i-l's Mothers' Day card as well and so I'll post it in a day or two!  Told ya I was busy lately!  ;)  Have a terrific Tuesday!
