SOMETHING FOR MOM

Hi all!! Sorry I have not been around much but I have been madly stamping away trying to get ready for a reallly big craft show here on Saturday! For those of you that are local, I hope to see you all at Feather Fiesta Days, there is going to be lots going on!! And, I am having a big drawing for a super fun basket of door prizes, free make 'n takes, and lots of fun classes on display! And, of course I will have lots of crafty things on sale for those last minute shoppers looking for something cute to give to mom *wink* Speaking of, I wanted to share a card I made recently - yes, this set is recently retired from the Occasions Mini but I wanted to share it anyway since it is such a great set for Mother's Day! I used the In-Colors Rich Razzleberry and Crushed Curry, which I have to say, looks yummy together! I also used the patterns DSP that comes in Rich Razzleberry and I love it!  Since I neglected my poor little hearts border punch, I decided to use it on this card, and it really turned out cute and is perfect - I mean, love and moms go together like peanut butter and jelly, right, LOL!  The ribbon IS the Crushed Curry Polka Dotted ribbon, I just turned it upside down and when I did my bow, I made sure the dots were face down - I thought the dots would be a little much with all the flowers, heehee!! And, I also did the inside of this one so I thought I would share that with you as well!
I stamped the flower image in Rich Razzleberry and added some Crushed Curry accents with my stampin' write marker.  Simple but I think it turned out cute and gives the card a finished look!  I feel bad that I have neglected all of your blogs this week and hope to squeeze some time in later tonight to go blurfing......right now I am going to make a few quick projects before I have to take Kayla to the doctor! Thanks sooo much for stopping by, I really love your comments and I read each and every one of them! Have a wonderful day!
