A favorite Mother's Day card...

This was a super simple Mother's Day card, but I really liked it. The background is some DSP that I found in my stash. I thought it looked like a cloudy sky.

The dies I used for the tree and sitting/reading children are unbranded. I love these images of children reading. We all want our children and grandchildren to be good readers, don't we? It makes life so much easier for them.

I heat-embossed my sentiment onto the charcoal-colored cardstock.

My inside sentiment was computer-generated. Like I said, this card was easy peasy! It was donated to the thrift store for them to sell.

One little anecdote from the thrift store: I was busy displaying some of my handmade Mother's Day cards in the jewelry case there. As I was doing this, a lady walked by and began watching me. Thinking that the cards had been donated by someone other than me, she said, "Some people sure make beautiful cards, don't they!" I just replied "they sure do" and continued with my task. She made my day.

Today is a gorgeous day outside. Our snow is now all gone. It's time to get outside and get to work on my plants! First, though, I'm actually going to wash my car. I can't wait to get it all cleaned up from winter driving. They salt the streets (it helps de-ice them) so heavily here in the wintertime and it ends up on our cars.

I hope you are enjoying some sunshine wherever you are. Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
