Mom's Day Blog Hop


I'm thrilled to be a part of Nicolette's Mom's Day Blog Hop! if you arrived here from Erin's blog, then your in the right place, if you want to start from the beginning, then hop back over to Nicolette's blog.

Mother's Day is a special day for many women, but for me it's extra special because my mom was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2008. I feel very lucky to still have her so this card is dedicated to her.


For this card I used A Child's First Year cartridge, I also embossed the background and added some cherry blossom ribbon and finished off the card with a few flat back pearls & a flower rhinestone.

I appreciate you taking time to visit my little corner of the blogging world! Your next stop on the hop is Karel, and I hope you love what she created! There are so many talented ladies on this hop, so I hope you take a moment to visit them all!

Now for the fun part, BLOG CANDY!!! I will be giving away ribbon from my Etsy store to the winner of this blog hop. Once a winner is chosen, that person will be able to pick any 5 yards of ribbon from my store. All you have to do to win is be a follower of my blog and leave a comment. I will be picking a winner using Random.org on Tuesday 5/3.  I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and until next time, Continue To Create a Crafty Life ~
