My Mothers Mother Day Card

My mother is so special to me. There is nothing in the world to give her to tell her how thankful and blessed I am to have her, but I tried with this meager card. She loves blue/brown (yep we have that in common) and sunflowers. I know this is not really a sunflower but I took some creative license with it. I used kraft cardstock for my base, stamped a polkadot pattern on the bottom with versamark ink, white ribbon for the middle, blue/brown polkadot paper for the top. The label is an EK success punch and CTMH stamped sentiment that someone sent me in a Rak. The flower is my first time two time stamping to get a 3 D look. Not sure if you can see it here. I also used LOTS of chalk for shimmer that did not show up here either. What do you think?

I sure hope your Mothers Day is grand. We all woke up sick but we are relaxing. Jonathan went and purchased me some Dunkin Donuts (super yummy!) for breakfast, him and Caitlyn made me an awesome tshirt with Caitlyn's hand prints turned into a butterfly. She also drew me a picture on my Mothers Day card that Jon made me. I could not ask for me. I know I am loved and appreciated. He has taken care of her most of the day so I can try to get some energy for this upcoming week. Tonight he is making me my favorite dinner (fried potatoes and scrambled eggs)! We went to ACmoore and he got me two new Glitz design background stamps that I cannot wait to play with when I am better! Hope you have a great day where you feel loved and needed!
