Welcome to the April 2015 edition of the 
Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop!

Well it may be a bit early for Mother's Day celebrations, but it's not too early to begin your Mother's Day projects!!! It's April 1!! Only a month to get those supplies & create!!! You will find some great inspiration from the talented ladies on this blog hop!!!

Here is my card for Mother's Day:

These colors ended up together by accident, but I love the look! They are Blackberry Bliss & Tempting Turquoise

In keeping with my CAS style, I wanted something simple yet elegant.  The image is from the Serene Silhouettes stamp set.  The little flowers in the background are from the Summer Silhouettes, and the sentiment is from Crazy About You!

The stamp was colored with markers, & the bling is Dazzling Diamonds glitter! It adds such a pretty pop to the flowers. I was thinking hydrangeas! Hard to think flowers at all with the cold weather we are having. All my spring flowers are under 1-2 feet of snow still. Sad. I wish spring would get here.

Oh well! I did make sure the inside was pretty too. Just in case the weather is still cold in May! It may help warm up the situation!

Other items used are the Window Frames Framelits, Circle Framelits, & 1/4" Ribbon.
