Happy Mother's Day!

I want to wish a very happy 
Mother's Day
to all of you wonderful, loving, busy and very talented
mother's!  I hope that all of you enjoy a wonderful day!
Here is the card that I made for my fabulous mother
I chose this image from Mo's Digital Pencil
"Checking Facebook"
to remind my mother to kick back and relax 
with a cup of coffee today.  She always checks my blog posts 
to admire my cards and boost my self esteem with such sweet compliments.  Then she enjoys going on face book to see pictures posted by my children of her great grandchildren! 
I've been very blessed
with a wonderful mother who we all love so very much!
She is my best friend and confidant who has always been
a phone call away and come running if I needed her.
She has been there to nurse and care for me whenever
I have been ill or I've been recovering from having a 
baby or a surgery.  Helping me bathe my babies when 
we came home from the hospital,
quietly taking over the care of my house, doing laundry,
cooking and cleaning.
Growing up, she always encouraged me to cook, do cake decorating, crochet, knit, sew, do cross stitch and try lots of new things!
I most definitely inherited my love of crafts from my mother!
Mo's "Checking Facebook" digi image
I colored the image with my copic markers
I used My Favorite Things flower dienamic to make the fabric flower.
The cardstock, design paper, fabric, ribbons and brad are
all from Stampin Up
The corner embellishment is from Wild Orchid Crafts
The lovely heart border is a Magnolia doohickey Romantic Lace die.
