Without you by my side, I never could survive..I wouldn't be the woman standin' here before your eyes...

Happy Sunday and Mother's Day, peeps! I had a wonderful day today that began with roses and breakfast in bed, then an afternoon with my family. A girl couldn't ask for more! I hope all of you moms had a restful day (even if that means there are messy houses to clean tomorrow!) *wink*

Earlier I needed to create a quick card, so I scanned my saved sketches and found this one from Jen's Sketch for You to Try yesterday. I love it when the hard work is done for me...makes card making much quicker!

I pulled out Verve's Because of You set (sorry, it's temporarily sold out, but coming back soon!) to make this one for Josh's mom. I stamped the flower image in Kiwi Kiss, then removed the ink on the flower image with a blender pen and colored it with my Elegant Eggplant marker, then huffed and stamped. I did the same for the other image using Rose Red. Then I stamped the sentiment in Versamagic Midnight Black, sponged the edges of the panel, and distressed it with my Tonic Distressor Tool. The Rose Red panel was embossed using the Textile Embossing Folder. The edges of the Kraft panel were sponged with Close to Cocoa ink, then I added the 5/8" White Grosgrain ribbon.

Well, I'm out...gotta get the crew fed and bathed and ready for bed. Have a wonderful evening!
