Mother's Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the Mother's Day Blog Hop and my blog! This hop is all about Mother’s Day and a challenge to create anything, but no flowers allowed!

If you have come from Gaby at She Inks A Lot , you are in the right place. If you stumbled upon my blog and want to play along, you can do so by starting at Giselle's Blog  This hop is full of talented ladies {and giveaways, too}!

Let me start by saying that I tried a butterfly shape card from the Hannah Montana Cart but it just wasn't working for me.  I knew I wanted to use butterflies so I tried again and this is what I came up with.

Patterned Paper is Basic Grey.  All cardstock is scrap.   This picture is really blown.  Sorry about that!  The colors really do all work together because they are in the patterned paper.  I used a cuttlebug die/embossing set for the butterflies and EK Success border punch.
I do have blog candy but I won't be revealing what it is til I draw a winner on Monday evening.  I will say it's new, unopened and unused.   I believe that you will enjoy it.  To be entered in the drawing please leave a comment.  I would love to have you follow me if you enjoy my blog but it is not required.
Thank you for playing along. Your next stop is Sylvia .

Here is a list of all participators:

I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter weekend.
