Raise the Bar Challenge #17 - For Mom

Don't forget...you have until 6pm CST tonight to CASE my critter card! Thanks to Kim, Amber, Jeanne, and Bernice for CASEing me! Right now I'm in the lead by 1, but Jami and Sandra are right behind me! Please help me win a free stamp set and you could be the next TGF Critter Crew Guest Designer!

I normally post my Raise the Bar challenges on Saturdays...but since I did the Tiddly Ink blog hop, I had to wait until today. This week's challenge was to make a card for your Mom. I didn't go home for Mother's Day, but here is the card I made for Anna, my step mom. Her favorite color is pink and figured she would love the bright colors.

Paper: Basic Grey Green at Heart
Stamps: Sarah Kay, sentiment is Amuse
CTMH Brads, Copics, Rhinestones, Prima Flowers, PTI Buttons, Twine, and Crystal Stickles


Last night Brent was silly and wanted to go out to dinner. I told him all the restaurants would be busy, but he insisted on going to Mizu. It was sweet, they gave mimosas, roses, and fried ice cream to all of the 'moms.' I got green tea ice cream instead, lol.

Well, I hope you all have a fabulous Monday! It's back to work for me...and then I'm heading up to Nona's for a last minute get together - craft night!
