Happy Mother's Day

My mother has been specifically instructed to not check out my blog until Monday.  She says that's just fine because she'd rather be surprised by her card (assuming it was a card I was hiding from her).  I made her this shadow box for Mother's Day and am entering it in both the Heart2Heart Challenge for this week and the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge for this week.  Both blogs had a challenge to make something for your mother.  I've been frantically working on this the last couple days because my mom lives in Arizona and I have to get it in the mail tomorrow.  Priority mail will get it there by Saturday, right?  I hope so.  If not, she'll forgive me... we are both habitually last minute so we understand each other.
I used the Olivia paper packet and the "Together" is from the stickease.  The sentiment is from Family Love.  I cut the flowers, leaves, and flourishes from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  I used various CTMH and non-CTMH bling for the centers of the flowers.  I used all of the flat flower cuts on the cartridge and cut them at all different sizes; distressed them and crinkled them and randomly put them together.  I love these flowers because they are both dimensional and easy to put on a scrapbook page.  The butterfly is from the Just Blooms collection.
With this post is an early Happy Mother's Day to all of you... you may be a mother to little ones, furry ones, and/or the men in your life...lol!  Enjoy your day because you deserve it!
