YA!! Friday. I sent out all my Mother's day card early this week and ready to get this big day started. The weather is getting better and better everyday. I hope it will keep this way. I am ready for Summer.

Made this one for Card Patterns Sketch62 .Hero Arts is the sponsor this week and offering a great prize. I like how it turn out a vintage look. The butterfly is a left over from last project and it fits perfectly. Again, love my dogwood stamp. I can't stop using it.
