It's Right Around the Corner.... You Ready?
You KNOW what I'm talking about, right??? Of course you do... Mother's Day!! For me, being a mom is special enough... I never thought I'd have kids. And when I decided to, it took three LONG, STRESSFUL years to finally have that sweet opportunity. I can't think of one thing in this world that makes me happier than being a mom... having two beautifully perfect (in my mind) children and being someone they can always come to. I thank God for them every day and I know that my life is a million times happier for having them in it. They love to buy me gifts and I always tell them.. "Just being your mom is the most wonderful gift in the world." I mean that but you know... they don't go for it. LOL A great excuse to MAKE dad take them shopping, I think. LOL
But then... it's universal isn't it??? I too insist on getting something for my mom. I know she doesn't need anything and I know if I asked her, I'd get the same response I give my kids. But even so... I grab something that has meaning to me and hopefully her as well. :-) For as long as I can remember, the "girls" in the family all go to breakfast with mom and then we all head out to take a flower spray to Grandma's grave site (her mom). Of course, Emily, joins us for breakfast but afterwards I pick up Steven as he likes to visit Grandma with us. Then, the rest of the day is my time with my kids. :-)
My card today is one I will give her on Mother's Day. I used the adorable "Dress Up Marci" from La La Land Crafts. OMGosh she just screams "mom" to me... dressing up in mom's clothes... hee hee. I actually did that when I was a little girl. Ha!! (Oh so long ago! LOL)
I used Pure Luxury Jelly Bean Green card stock as my base. I added a layer of Wild Lilac and then a sheet of DP from the Best Creations, "A Walk in the Garden" paper pack. Marci was colored with Copic markers and cut out and added to the card front using Pop Dots.
I added some Prima lace and bling to the side and a cute little Webster stick pin to my bow. Now Marci's ready for tea with mom! :-)
I hope you are having a great Wednesday... half way there to the weekend!! Woot!
Come back tomorrow as there's a special surprise in store for Thursday. Can't say what it is yet, but you can bet it will be full of FUN and LAUGHS!!!! Trust me.. you won't want to miss out!! ;-)
Thanks for stopping by!!! *HUGS*
