Mother's Day Fun!

Happy Thursday to you!!! 

My hubby was so sweet yesterday, he said "Hey, I really hate to go to the store to buy a card for my Mom.  Do you think you can make something more special that we can send to her?"...

Well you know I was way more than happy to do that!!!  My mother-in-law is so appreciative of cards and flower and such, it's really a joy to create something for her. 

I'm also entering this little creation into the Cricut Circle Blog's Monthly Challenge for May.  It's a recipe challenge of sorts and so much fun!
For this card I chose the newly released "Little Cutie" line from Imaginisce for girls, a little Garden Party and Enchanted tossed in with some cardstock.  I used my i-Top brad maker for the center flower and our Mesh Brads from Garden Party for the other flower centers.  My i-rock shows up with those adorable new metal hearts on the flower centers and gems in my pattern paper on top.  The alpha stickers are from "Me & My Big Ideas". Twine is from the Twinery. Hemp is by Darico.
I used my Cricut Expression and the Doodlecharms cartridge for my sun and flowers.  I liked that the flowers sort of echoed the shape of the sun a bit.  I didn't attach the rays of the sun or the petals/leaves from my flowers just so I could provide a little texture and pop.

The touch of ric-rak at the bottom was just the perfect pop of pink that I thought it needed to be cheerful.

I hope this little card brings some sunshine into your day!  Have a super scrappity day!!!

So glad to see you posting again! Lovely little card! Your MIL will love it! The only time my DH asks me to make a card is when he's forgotten to buy one and needs me to get him out of trouble!
