Happy Mother's Day Weekend

Wishing all my US friends a Happy Mother's Day.  Hubby surprised me with this beautiful hanging basket.
I made a birthday card for the PTI MIM challenge: background stamping with sentiment stamps.  
The word "happiness" from Make it Market Garden Gild was stamped in Soft Stone on a square of white cardstock. Decided to make a wreath so more of the background would show.  I looked through some PTI color combos & decided to use the Twig Wreath dies with PTI cardstock.  Must be getting old because this morning I realized 2 of the colors were not what I intended to use!  Fortunately, I like the combo: soft stone, fine linen, aqua mist, scarlet jewel & sweet blush. The flowers were mounted with foam tape.   I stamped the Tiny Tag in Soft Stone & inked the edges of the tag & the panel. Rosewater Nuvo Jewell drops embellish the flowers & I tied on white crochet thread.  I'm also entering HLS Anything Goes with Dies, The Playground, Die Cut Divas & W2CB.

Cut my first 2 roses of the year & here they are with a picture of my mom, always in my heart.  
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
