Flowers for Mom

It's almost that time....Mother's Day is right around the corner.  I'm trying to figure out what to do for my Mom to celebrate - she's almost 82 years old and lives with me so she has whatever she needs and doesn't really want for anything.  Her favorite thing nowadays is having an agenda...she asks me every day if there's something we need to do - run to the grocery store, go to the post office, go to the bank, etc.  So I suppose what will make her happy will be to run some errands on store here we come....Happy Mother's Day.

I want to share with you a Mother's Day card I made -. it's not a traditional folding A2 card - I believe the name of this type of card is a 'Joy folding' card. 

The stamp is called 'Tilda with Bunch of Roses' from Magnolia-licious.  She's colored with Copics and the flowers have stickles.  The patterned papers are from Die Cuts with a View (DCWV) 'Linen Closet' mat stack.  I love the color combination with the kraft cardstock.  The sentiment on the front is perfect for my Mom (and for all Moms out there I suspect).  It's a wood stamp from Hero Arts and it's called 'Special Mom'. 

A customer came into Archiver's over the weekend and I haven't seen her in a few years....we were talking about blogs, and cards and all things crafty....and she mentioned that I needed to start entering some card challenges - so I've done some checking and there are like a bazillion card challenges out there.  There are lots of different themes for the challenges (i.e. ribbon, anything goes, using dots, pink and glitzy, etc.)  You just have to find ones that suit your project.  So I found a bunch of them this card would work for - and I'm doing it....I'm entering this card in the following card challenges:
