Happy Mother's Day - You're The Best Mom!

Today we celebrate mothers for all they do for us.  The word mother is not one to take lightly or for granted.  They are the foundation of the family and guide us along the way and help to make us who we are.  I am blessed to have a wonderful mom.  She raised 6 children and even now (I am no spring chicken), she is someone who I go to for advice and comfort or, when things are going great, someone who I need to share the good news with.

I thought I would share a card I made for mom for Mother's Day.  A bit of background: my parents have a dog named Chester who my sister found abandoned and abused in a park.  My parents took him in and my mom cares for him like he was her 7th child.  He has become a vital part of our family and so when I saw this image (in a Father's Day set no less!), I knew it would be perfect for my mom.

Supplies:
Stamps: Sweet N Sassy, Simon Says Stamp (bone)
Ink: Memento Black
Paper: Gina K (White, Kraft)
Misc: Uni-ball Signo White, Copic Makers, Spellbinders Square Dies

I wanted the card to be quirky and fun (just like Chester) so the bones were stamped randomly around the card.  I received a call from mom to let me know she loved the card!

Hope your Mother's Day was a lovely one!

Until next time!

This card is so cute, and I'm glad Chester found a forever home with your mom as #7.
