Happy Mother's Day!

Stopping in with a card I made for my mom.  She is not here right now as her and my dad are traveling for work.  So she gets an e-card.  That works right?  

Mom's Day

So this was a pretty easy card.  I took my AMuse (Have I told you how amazingly fabulous this ink is?) ink pad and just tapped around on the card front to make that blue rectangle in the background.  Easy right?  Yes!  Then I added the Studio G sentiment.  I layered the TANL die leaves with Spring Moss on top and black on the bottom.  I added 2 flowers that I made using the Cheery Lynn dies.  Super simple!

This goes out to all my online Momma friends too!  I hope that you have an amazing Mother's day!  I am going to be hanging out with my 2 kiddos!  They are pretty much my favorite thing ever!  I hope every day that I am the best mom I can be!  They are truly gifts from God!  

Thanks for stopping in!  Have a blessed day!  :)

Gotta love my AMuse inks - shame they don't post over here though :(
The e-card will definitely suffice until your mom gets this beauty! I hope you have a fabulous Mother's Day too!

Lovely card, just lovely. I must try Amuse inks someday because I keep hearing good things about them! Too bad your mom's on the road but so sweet you are spending your day with your two kiddos. Mine are all in Houston (dd#2 due with her own dd#2 very, very soon!) so it's just me and my very wonderful dh! Enjoy your day:) Happy Mother's Day!!
