Mother's Day

Well, it sure has a been a really tough week and a half.  I have been fighting with a kidney stone and it has basically won.  I've been living on cranberry juice and Percocet.  Now its decided to just hide and wait!  I swear a kidney stone is more painful than giving birth!  Thankfully I had my important blog  posts scheduled, because I really don't think I could have gotten them done.

I did manage to get this card done today for my sweet Aunt.  I think she will get it on time if it goes in the mail tomorrow - at least I hope so!  It was a file from Silhouette I recently purchased.  I love  the flourish look, and I did it in her favorite color of cranberry.  I used a die cut to cut the roses and then put them together, and also the leaves.  The sentiment was also cut on my Silhouette.

Thanx for stopping by, and an early Happy Mother's Day to all the 
moms out there!
