Happy Mother's Day! With Little Acres

DON'T LOOK MOM AND STAY OFF THE INTERWEB!  Had to pop in a day early to post this because I wanted to tell you about a sale going on over at Little Acres for Mother's Day Weekend!

Right??  Get yourself a Mother's Day Gift!  You know what you want!!

So here's what I made using the latest coffee house mouse set, Cafe Dreamers:

I just LOVE this adorable set... those adorable mice with their coffee (or tea) cups... the sugar cubes, and that little teabag!  I created a table setting... this adorable little boy is sitting with his mom in the early morning while she has some tea and tells him stories.   And it's hard to see... maybe you didn't notice that pretty Sunflower picture on the wall...

... Has an eclipse!  I love these subtle surprises in a card... it's much easier to see in person than to!  But hopefully you can see it pretty good here... I stamped the sunflower from the Summer Blessings set onto the diecut frame and stitched rectangle (from PTI); colored it in, and then I diecut MOM out of the center of it using some MFT Alpha Dies.  I cut them three or four more times in white and stacked them all together.  I added some CTMH Liquid Glass again to make it stand out a bit more.. makes it harder to photograph, but it looks nice in person.

And look at this sweet boy listening intently.. he just loves his mom!  

And her in her crown... 'cause she's the Queen... at least for today.... she has her most important make adoring her. (love how the CTMH Liquid Glass makes that tea look real!)

So that's how I'll feel when my boys call me ... they are far away, but I know I'll hear from both of them.  And I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day too... whether you're a people mom, or a dog mom, or a cat mom, or a lizard mom (I have a lizard grandson and I love him too).  His name is Optimus.  But I!  Have a wonderful day everyone!  Hope to see you again soon!  And don't forget to get shopping!

A little behind in my commenting, but I got this card in person and did it verbally. The funny thing is you told me not to look, but I saw the card on facebook and never realized it was an eclipse card with MOM on it and usually I look at all the detail of your cards. I love my card, and thanks for sharing it with the scrapbook world. Love, Mom
