H2H Challenge....Mother's Day Card

First of all...THANK YOU to all who are participating in our Heart 2 Heart Challenges (H2H)...it's so fun to see what you guys come up with!!!  I hope you're enjoying having a CTMH Challenge Blog...I know I am!
-------------------------------
This week's challenge is to honor all the Mother's out there (hopefully your Mother) by making a Mother's Day Card!  I am lucky to still have my Mother but I know that many of you may not.  Some ideas for this Mother's Day...make YOURSELF a Mother's Day card...hand it to your husband/significant other and have him get your children to write something special in it...not only will it be a card you're SURE TO LOVE, it saves your husband from standing in the grocery store isle looking for that "special" card...lol.  Another idea is to adopt someone at a Nursing Home...she may have children that remember her on this special day but a card would still be appreciated...maybe a neighbor if you know that their children don't live near them or maybe they don't have children that recognize all the wonderful things Mothers do.  You can find some really nice sentiments online that are for those kind of Mothers...the kind that aren't yours but you've adopted them!!!  A handmade card always makes someone's day!!!
-----------------------------
On to my card...

I chose to do a square card...surprise, surprise...I just LOVE square cards!!!  I used Veranda and Bella Paper Packets....

---------------------------
The sentiment and ribbon are pop-dotted on the right side for dimension....
----------------------------
Here's a closeup of the NEW Irresistibles Dimensional Elements (for some reason they're not pulling up on the shopping side of my website...the number is Z1307 and they're only $4.95).  I also used Say it in Style and Bitty Sparkles...I threw in some Creme Brulee Ribbon and used Cocoa Ink, Juniper Ink and Creme Brulee for the Irresistibles and the "Mother's Day". 


----------------------------
Thanks for stopping by....don't forget to play along by creating your own Mother's Day card and linking it back to the main H2H Challenge Blog.  You can find a complete set of rules on my sidebar or on the H2H blog.

We also have a sponosr this week so that means one random player will get all the goodies that Miss Adeline has for you!!!  Thanks Adeline!

Now go check out the other Design Team members and see what FABULOUS creations they have to show off...

Katy, I love your card- especially the tag with the ribbon! I also have to laugh at the "Man in Brown" photo off to the right. That is so funny. Ps. I used to have my MIB's cell phone #. He said I could call him in the morning if I needed my stuff asap. Hmmm... That was always!
