Mother's Day Card

I had an absolutely fabulous time in Detroit last week with my son's hockey team.  He was taking part in the Special Hockey International tournament.  In fact, during the second game, my little guy earned the team puck by being the player who most exemplified the qualities of Special Hockey International! The entire team did such an amazing job playing their games (and won a few of them too!) and it really was a blessing to be part of it all.  Unfortunately, I was not able to get much shopping in - although I DID find some new embossing folders which found their way into my shopping cart.

This week's challenge at My Craft Spot is Mother's Day/Spring.  I was in a bit of a rush to put a project together before I left but a cute file from Miss Kate's Cuttables did the work for me!  I created the card base with a shape from Call Me Victorian and stamped the top layer with a sentiment from Happy Easter before embossing it with a sweet butterfly folder.  I then added the momma/baby bird cut with PopDots.

Please head over to My Craft Spot to see what the rest of the design team has created - and to link up your own Mother's Day/Spring-themed project for a chance to win this week's prize!
