Mother's Day is almost here!


This weekend is Mother's Day!  I already had a card made for my Mom, but I also wanted to make a little special something for my sister.  She is Mom to my two nieces and my nephew - and oh, they are my pride and joy and my happiness.  Being their Auntie has filled my life, and my heart with a love that I could have never imagined possible.

I doubled up on challenges again this week, which is odd for me, but with Paper Players having a Mother's Day themed challenge this week, and CAS(E) this Sketch having an adorable little sketch to play with, I couldn't resist.

Here's the inspriation sketch:

And my card:

My sister's got twins - boy and and a girl, and a younger daughter, so I positioned the "twins" together at the top, and her younger daughter swooping in from the bottom, all coming in for a hug with Mom!  Most of the card is from the Paper Smooches Flap Happy Set, and the "happy" and "day" come from a Papertrey Ink set that I've had for quite a while and hardly ever pull out (I'll have to work on pulling it out more often!).  I *think* it's called Bitty Birds.

Hope you like it - and Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's out there!
