A card for my Mom.

Morning!  Did you all have a nice weekend?  We had a three day weekend here, in honor of Memorial Day.  Luckily Mike and I were both off and able to enjoy time together.  With the crazy week we have in store, I was SO grateful :)

Mom and dad were gone for almost the whole month of May, including over Mother's Day.  They came by yesterday for dinner and I gave Mom her Mother's Day gift and this card.

This card was so much fun to make.  I love October Afternoon papers SO much anyway, and then I used the Tim Holtz caged bird die and a fun butterfly.  I was trying to figure out where to add a sentiment but thought it looked okay without one.

Hope you have a great Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by today :)
