Friday challenge...Mom's Day Theme

Well today's challenge at notimetostamp is to do a Mother's Day card or project or whatever you want as long as it's Mom themed I guess. I had to keep it simple but that's what the challenge is all about ...stamp simply. I used my Cuttlebug folder to emboss the long stemed flowers along the side and then just slapped some polka dotted paper as my BG ( that's background if you're blogging illiterate) and then my Nestie special something or other to make a couple mats to glue down also. Then a simple yet very to the point verse from Flourishes mother's set and a few blings ...done.
Well it's time for the weekend and a special one for all us Mom's out there. All our snot nosed kids are going to try and butter us up with cards, flowers, candy and whatever they think will fool the old broad with some joy. Just kidding, I know my two kids love me and I say...back at you. My Mom is gone now for 6 years and she was the best Mom I could have ever asked for. I miss you Mom and you too Will ( that's my darling husband who passed away 2 weeks after my Mom) Also I'm saying a Happy Birthday to my Will who I'm sure is up in heaven looking down and just shaking his head thinking...crazy lady will never change. Love you both.

Hello Pat! I've so missed coming to visit, and now I'm back! I love the design of your card. It is beautiful. Love that embossing. What a very sweet post. You always seem to either make me laugh out loud or tear up a little, and this time you did both! Happy Mother's Day to you! Best, Curt

Your card is just lovely and has one of the best sentiments I've ever seen for Mother's Day!
I know it's bittersweet for you having lost your Mom and DH in such a short time-span, but my Mother's Day wish is for you to enjoy this day set aside for special moms like YOU! Do something that makes you smile and laugh, 'cause we're only here for a little while :)
