My Wonderful Mother

One more Mother's Day card using my free American Crafts paper that I scored from the clearance section at Michael's. The first time I saw this frame digi from Bird's Cards I envisioned popping up the flowers , so I finally did it here. Lots of cutting but I think the effect is worth it.

This is the actual card I gave to my Mother. I hope she likes it. I got her one of those crazy Topsy Turvy Tomato Planters because she has her own greenhouse on her porch. I figured we could try it out and see if it will grow indoors. I also altered a composition notebook for her.... she opened that early and loved it. She is taking a class all this weekend so we have to postpone our Mother's day celebration till next week. I am taking her to see Iron Man 2...I know, it is so... not girly, but we love those types of superhero movies. My mom is my superhero...I nicknamed her Super Curl! She ran out into the street one night to put out the trash in her curlers and bathrobe and her bathrobe was flapping in the breeze like a cape ... the name just sort of stuck!
