Delightful Challenge

** Please scroll down for the MTME Pretty Patterns post **

Hi all,

Thanks for coming back.  This week at Delightful Challenges we are making Mother's Day cards/projects.  What a wonderful person to celebrate - without them, we wouldn't be here.  I love my Mom, she's so cute and funny.  Don't get me wrong, we've had our challenges, but I have a lot of respect for my Mom.  She did what she had to do to survive as a single mom of 3 babies, she put herself through nursing school and she bought our first home.  She is a strong woman even if she doesn't want to be.

So to celebrate Mom's, we are making that your challenge.  I am celebrating for a new Mom, my co-worker had her baby girl a few days ago so this is for her...

Isn't it cute?  I treated myself to much coveted embossing folder that EVERBODY else has, so I ordered that, some pop dots and paper organizer.  I'll hate myself when the credit card bill comes, but for now I am loving it!

I did use the sketch from the Sweet Stop - SSS81 to help me with my card.  I am loving the results.
