Hi everyone!

I hope you are having a wonderful Mother’s Day!

Isn’t every day Mother’s Day? I mean in some way I know there is always a “moment” that makes me celebrate being a mom. Now that the kids are at the funnest of ages, 6, 8 and 11, they do their own things to make me feel special. I LOVE their handmade cards, poems, and gift ideas. Jay and I always make the kids pick out their own gifts, and its really cute to see what their idea of what they want you to have is 😀

Well I’m going to keep this brief because I have the day planned for me 😀 I want to enjoy my children and I hope you enjoy yours (or your own mother,grandchildren, fur babies!).

I went to see my mom in the hospital yesterday and we arrived home pretty late, so this is a little later than I intended. Sorry about that.

So today we have our Pretty Palette Challenge.

I SHOULD have made a Mother’s Day card, but wasn’t thinking about that as I was running crazy all week, so all I could think was COFFEE! Stay AWAKE! Must have energy! LOL!

So here is my take:

OK so I added chocolate to the color mix. I always view chocolate and black as neutrals and fair game to add to any color combo, just as white, and ivory are! LOL!

Obviously this card uses all stamps 😀

I LOVE the “To Go” coffee image from On Display 1 © ! I stamped, colored and cut it out several times, for some added dimension. The steam from the cut was done using the Fanciful Flourishes © set.

I chose the sentiment in the upper right corner, and to make my pattern along the card bottom from the Fancy a Cuppa? © set.

I just had fun with this, and went where inspiration took me 😀

Thanks for stopping by.

I’ll be back really soon.
