Hi everyone! Sorry that I haven't been around for the past two days, I just needed a break this week. I guess I don't have to tell how busy things can get with three kids! Not to mention that the weather is getting really nice and we've been spending some more time outside lately; which also means more yard work...ugh!

So while I took a few days off from blogging I've been making cards like crazy, so now I have a nice stash for some future posts. Which brings me to my card for today. Mother's Day will be here before we know it so I thought I'd better start on them.

This was a really quick and easy card to make and I really like how it turned out (Hubby likes this one too). I just stamped the square flower image first and then I stamped three of the small flowers (from this same stamp set) using black ink, and then I cut them out and placed them over my main image.

I did something a bit different with my layering on this card and I didn't line up my image with the black card stock layer- I sort of like how it looks off to the side and I'll have to be sure and try this again. I added a bit of paper piercing in the upper right corner and again along the left side of my card. It might be hard to see in my picture, but I added a small black dot to the center of each white flower.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
