Mother's Day is Coming

I'm trying to get a jump start on Mother's Day cards.   I need a few for my own gift-giving, and a few more for orders I've received.  So, I got started today.  Like all holidays, they sneak up on us before we know it, so I figured it's best to get busy now.  Once Friday comes, and I have my surgery, I don't know how I'll be feeling.  Planning ahead is always best.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

This card is based on a sketch from a darling little Russian Challenge Blog:

Here is the sketch.

Have you gotten any of your Mother's Day cards finished yet?  Leave me a message.  I would love to visit your blog and see what you've created.

Hugs,
Karen
