Mother's Day Blessings

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Well today we finalized our summer vacation plans. We are going to the Mexican Caribbean-the Riviera Maya. It is located on the North East coast of the Yucatan Peninsula.
I am looking forward to the family time. Hopefully my son and his family in California can get away and come with us.

Our spring flowers are in bloom right now. The tulips are a bit behind but they are on the way. We had some hail about 10 days ago and it destroyed some of them. Plus the deer are chomping. My hubby is trying to stay ahead of them. So hopefully he wins(lol)!!

Now onto my card for today. This is the 2nd one I made for my guest designer stint on Our Daily Bread Designs Blog. I made another Mother's Day card. This one is using 2 different ODBD stamps.

The image is the bleeding hearts stamp and the sentiment is from the Mother's Day set. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol.
I fussy cut the image and popped it on some river rock designer paper.

The layout is last week's Splitcoaststampers sketch #431.

My background paper is from an old Stampin-up collection "holiday harmony". I paired it up with purely pomegranate and river rock card stock. I used a Cheery Lynn Designs lace die for the middle panel to complete my card.

That's it for me for today. So until next time.......God bless.
