Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you Mom's out there. It takes a lot to be a good Mom...besides all the love they possess and provide, they need a lot of courage, patience, compassion, and understanding. It takes a lot of work to be a good Mom, but you always make it look so easy!!!


We had an early Mother's Day dinner last night. Here's the mini Mom's Day gift that I gave to my Mom, Aunty, and my sister. I used the Sizzix little package template. Paper Shapers flower punch , Stampin' Up circle punch, and Martha Stewart Crafts ribbons. The sentiment is from Dandelion Designs. It was a quick and simple project...but made with lot of love.

I started this project at Jen's House for her get together on Friday night... I met some very talented ladies all working on their projects...played with Jen's cutie, Cyrus, and had a lot of fun laughing with eveyone. Jen demonstrated the Hello Kitty Cricut Cartridge for me and I was just amazed with the result. So many little pieces that she had to glue down... WOW... Jen also gave us a little gift. So sweet. In a little box, she included some cute embelishments. She also gave each of us this pink bracelet for Breast Cancer Awareness, visit TheBreastCancerSite.com. Thanks Jen!!! It was a lot of fun!


Look at what Dawne got for me. I had been looking for this stamp for about a month now...I don't know why I was so attracted to this stamp. It must be his huge eyes and his innocent look. : ) She's so sweet... she knew that I was looking for it, so she looked it up online and bought it for me. She's so sneaky... she didn't say a word about it and she surprised me with it. She was so excited to give it to me, you should've seen the look on her face, but then again, you should've seen the look on my face too. I'm so lucky to have a friend like her. Thanks so much Dawne.



Sorry for the long post... I just wanted to get this out today. I have a lot of things to still do today and I gotta get a move on...


I made this card for my Mom... like me, she LOVES cats, so I dug out this kitty image in a window. Tried to give the kitty some dimension that you can probably only in the close up of the window.
My Mom is one of those very special people. She is a wonderful Mom... full of love and compassion. She loves my sister and I unconditionally and she supports ALL in that we do, whether she may agree with us or not. She gives us her two cents, but she supports our decisions and never fails us. That's the kind of Mom that I hope to be someday!

Hope you ALL have a wonderful day...

What a cute card! By the way, I'm not familiar with that brand of stamps (Snag 'Em Stamps, I think). Do you attach them to some kind of backing? I'm not a very experienced stamper, I'm afraid!
