Not Making a Mother's Day Card

This week I am NOT rushing around to make a Mother's Day card.  Why?  Because my mom, sweet as she is, gets really really really annoyed if my siblings and I try and recognize Mother's Day.  It is her philosophy that we should love and cherish her every single day and not just one day a year.  I really could never argue with that.  I have tried to explain that we can still do that and have Mother's Day but Mom just won't have it.  Of course, it made things a little tricky for my sister, brother and I during elementary school where well-meaning teachers tried to persuade us to make cards that would never be delivered.

Today, I decided to make a little "I Love You" card for my fab mom and send it next week, well away from the danger zone.  It's cute, right?  So is she!

I used the great Sketch #164 over at CardPatterns!  I did change the circle to an oval, but I think that's okay.

I used an image I got from a sweet friend overseas. I have been procrastinating using the last of these images but, ya know, it's for Mom so.....

Stamps: Fairy (HAnglar & Anglar); sentiment (Rogue Redhead Designs)
I thought this card would also work well for the following fantastic challenges:

Anything Goes - Things with Wings

Bearly Mine Challenges - Fairies

Papertake Weekly - Cute Cute Cute

Hope you all have a fabulous day with lots of green goodness, sunny outlooks and flowering fancies!
