Sweet Friend

Happy Mother's Day!! I want to take a moment to thank my Mom!! She is everything I would hope to be as a mother, daughter, Christian and friend! Now that I am a mother I think of the love and patience she has shown me....unconditionally! I love you so much Mom!!

I decided to create a card for 2 challenges this week. This is actually the second card I created but the first just wasn't what I was looking for. This card is for the Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge and well as the colourQ challenge #136. I think these challenges went really well together this week.

Here is my card... 
I love the stamps in the Mouthwatering stamp set! They are large bold images and so much fun! This card is made so that the banner that hang over the edge make this a standard sized card. I just love this look! I used the Pennant Die to add a background to the focal image. The stick for the popsicle is made by double punching the Word Window Punch. A no card is complete without a little "spritzer" of color. Other than my Big Shot and Paper Cutter, the Air Spritzer tool is a tool that I could NOT live without!!
This was such a fun card to make for both challenges!
Enjoy your day and Thanks for stopping by! :)
