Mother's Day Card Challenge

It's been a while I know since my last blog. That's because I've been leading a very busy life. That's what Mother's do, don't they. They put their own things aside until everyone else is looked after...then do something for themselves. I'm not saying that this is the right way to carry on, but it happens. Right now I'm helping my grandson with his college courses and trying to get him into the program that he wants. I also work part time 3 days a week at a local quilt shop (love it), volunteering at a large hospital Emergency Department once a week (absolutely love it). trying to finish a quilt, as well as caring for my husband, cat and tropical fish. That doesn't include cleaning, getting ready for Easter, readying myself for a trip to San Fransisco next month...the list goes on.

I did take time out of my week to make a card in celebration of Mother's Day. I had some lovely patterned paper that I cut out as the background. I used my Martha Stewart scoring mat on some lovely raspberry tinted paper and made the large accordion flower. I took the same designer paper and using my Create A Critter cartridge, cut out several flowers . The lovely blush organza bow adds softness to the card. A simple script Happy Mother's Day stamp from Papertrey Ink finishes the card.

Please join us at Cricut Cardz Challenge for their Challenge #71 and make a Mother's Day card using any cartridge you'd like. We'd love to see your project posted on their blog. You even have a chance to win a prize. Thanks and enjoy your week!


  1. I truly understand about the busy life, but I am SO glad that you took the time out to make this BEAUTIFUL card! I love the accordion folded flower! I can't say enough about it! You always make such pretty cards, anyway!
