Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there...

... whether you are a mom of kids or pets you're still a mommy!

This year with the added responsibilities at work, it has been a struggle to get my cards done on time. But done they are - and this year I got two completed for both my Mom and my Mother-in-Law. I really hit the jackpot with my inlaws as we get along very well.

Today's inspiration: Case Study #139 : Buttons & Bling - Maureen Plut

I was determined to use a button and add some sparkle. Originally I had tied the ribbon in a bow but it overpowered the flower that I had painstakingly colored with Copic markers. So instead I trimmed the ribbon for something smaller and cuter. You may not be able to see in the photo, but the colored flower and the three red words "Hope, Love, Joy" are embossed.

This is when I realized I didn't have any decent sentiments for Mother's Day so I left it blank, but you can see the same flower from the front peeking around the corners of the card. I love bringing images towards the inside of the card. I had better fix that with my next CTMH order!
