'Replacement' Mother's Day

As I mentioned before, the other mother's day card I made my mom got snatched up when I took it to work. Last night I managed to finish the 'replacement' card. Ironically, while I was making it my mom came and chatted to me several times. Never when I'm making other cards does she come into my room to chat, but last night when I am trying to make a card for her, she just had to come visit, often - luckily she didn't even pay attention to what I was doing, as she usually does when I'm busy making cards. (It's not really her thing :-) )

I chose this image as it is actually so much more fitting than the other card I made, guess everything happens for a reason. I'm not sure of the colours though, as I don't think this is really her taste. The stamp & sentiment are both from Stamping Bella, and was one of the ones I ordered, which I just had to have. I love this image, and the sentiment is perfect! It is called Stella with an olive on top.

The image was coloured with my prismacolor pencils, just for a change, cut out with my nestibilities, and it and the sentiment were mounted on 3D foam.

I didn't manage to make something for the Bella challenge this week. Too many mother's day cards I had to fit in. But go check all the entries, I'm sure you'll have great fun - I sure did!!! I love seeing what other people make, it's so inspiring.

Now I'm off to the shops, I'll be making breakfast for my mom and sister for Mother's Day tomorrow. Seeing they are both mothers (and I'm not), I figured I'll give them the morning off.

Tonight I have to go to my niece's school for a choir performance. They practice like a million times a week, so this should be good, I think I should take an iPod just in case not ;-) I'll let you know when I next post something.....
