Happy Mother's Day!

To each one of you moms out there, no matter how old your children are, I say "Happy Mother's Day"! We had four generations here today: my mother-in-law Tracy, my daughters, Kate, Chris, Linz and Emz, and their little ones...plus me...makes four generations celebrating Mother's Day! (Plus all the guys were here too, of course.)


My daughter Chris decided this was the perfect day to tell us all that "number 3" is on the way!!

Now that's an amazing gift for a grandma! So exciting!!

Now about this new card...


The only MD card I made was for my mother-in-law. I got the lovely flowers in the mail from Karen Stark (the ones I won during the Blog Hop) and I just had to put one on a card immediately! They are so pretty and easy to work with...Thanks again, Karen! Such a nice variety of colors! I will be enjoying working with these for weeks to come.


Here is the list of ingredients I used:

cardstock - DCWV

Magnolia image - Tilda with Lilacs (colored with color pencils)

"Thanks Mom" stamp - JustRite

Die cuts - Spellbinder, Scalloped Edge Frame & Big Scalloped Circles; (little leaves & branches I think are Martha Stuart punches??)

the HMD sentiment is computer generated

Stickles used on ALL flowers, both 3D & 2D

small pink roses are from my still growing stash!


I'm entering this card in 2 challenges:
