All that I am...

I owe to my mother. Love that quote! And it is so true! My mom has been there for me through thick and thin. I can always count on her! She is truly my best friend and I am forever, truly grateful for her! I can only hope to be half as un-selfish, as she is with me and my sister, to my children. I Love you Mom! And don't forget to tell your Mom or that special woman in your life the same this Sunday, Mother's Day!

I made this card for yesterday's Ways to Use It Challenge on SCS. It was to use Kraft cardstock. I love Kraft and could use it everyday! I just made a simple base card with it, then trimmed a piece of Fancy Pants, Kraft Cuts patterned paper and it adhered to the center of the base. I then added some stamped Rubber Cafe butterflies, glitter, mini adhesive pearls, a Melissa Frances Rub-on, Making Memories Stick Pins and a hemp cord bow. Hope you like it!

I hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day too!

Hugs & Kisses....
