Mother's Day

I hope that everyone that celebrates Mother's Day had a great day!!

I made this from the SU! Carousel Notes that are in the most recent mini. (until May 31st!) I paired it with the blue polka dotted designer paper from the Summer Days Simply Scrappin' kit. I cut the giant circle with my Cricut and hinged the two together with a blue brad from Basic Grey. I cut a smaller circle out of SU! shimmery white cardstock that I also with my Cricut. I stamped the Amuse chandelier with Versamark ink and then sprinkled them with my silver SU! embossing powder and heat set them and popped this circle up on dimentionals. I ran the Guava double stitched ribbon behind the white circle and tied it in a fluffy bow on the side. The sentiment is Happy Mother's Day from the $ bin at Michael's and the other sentiment is "you light up my life" from Amuse.

I gave this to my Grandmother (The Doctah - to those of us who know and love her) and she teared up. So that's how I know it's good ;) Funny thing about this sentiment, is that when I was a little girl, she had a faux terrarium (sp?) that was a music box and when you opened it played 'You Light Up My Life'. I didn't even think about that until after I had finished the card...which *almost* made me tear up as it made me think of things from another lifetime ago.

But I digress....

It's late in posting for Mother's Day but between other projects, my studio 'reno' and my most recent illness this is the time that I've got!!

I hope that everyone has a very creative Memorial Day weekend!!!
