Happy Early Mother's Day from Me to You!

Good evening all! I trust that this post finds you all well. We have some wonderful reasons to celebrate! Today is Cinco de Mayo. Sunday we will be celebrating Mother's Day. And we are also celebrating a milestone - 200 FOLLOWERS!! Awhile back I said that we would have a giveaway we hit 200 followers and I am a woman of my word. Details will follow at the end of this post.

I have a very special Mom. It took me becoming a Mom to truly appreciate all she had done for me. So I decided to go out on a limb and try a different type of card for her. I bought the Stampin Up Mom stamp knowing I would used it for her card. The rest was divine inspiration! This was my first time making a gatefold card and I am quite happy with the way it came out. Here is the picture and the items used to make it:
* DCWV Garden Party paper stack
* Craft store cardstock
* Stampin Up pearls
* Stampin Up Mother of Mine and Curvy Verses stamps
* Fiskars paper cutter
* EK Success bone folder
* Tombow Mono Adhesive 

I will have to hand deliver my gift to my Mom when I see her but I want her to have her card at least. Happy Mother's Day to all Mom's whether you have 2 legged or 4 legged kids.
