Mother's Day.......

I've recently been making several Mother's Day themed cards. I've found some beautiful quotes online, but the one I've used for this card was simple and straight from the heart. The sketch is based on Kazan's from 2S4Y (#50) and the colours are from the Color Throwdown Challenge #88 - Tangerine Tango, Basic Gray and So Saffron/White. 

The DP is called Woodland Whimsy from the Sassafras website. I used both sides, since I really liked the fabric-like effect of the paper. The vertical strip was cut with a Martha Stewart punch, the tag has been cut using a Big Shot Die-cut machine and Lots of Tags Sizzlits dies (which I just ordered, and absolutely LOVE!!!) from SU . The sentiment is from the Delightful Dahlia set by Raspberry Suite. The tangerine card stock is from my stash.

Hurrah, it's finally Friday and we're heading out to dinner with the boys. We haven't been out to a restaurant in a while as a family, so it should be an interesting experience!! Will probably need to actually do some exercise this weekend to burn off the extra calories. Food, here I come.....Namaste!!
