Simple Mother's Day Card

Hello!  Happy Weekendeve!  Saturday is National scrapbooking day!  Do you have special crafting plans?  I'm afraid I don't, but I'm hoping to get some crafting time in anyway. 

I actually turned on the air conditioner this afternoon.  I have my grandson and he loves for me to rock him for his nap and we were sweating rivers!  I would much rather pay the electric bill than miss that time in the rocking chair, so on it came. 

I have another Mother's Day card today.  This one has some recycling in it.  Can you pick it out?
Yes, the white background is that plastic web stuff a ham or whole chicken comes in.  I thought that kind of reminded me of the chicken wire my Grandma used to put around some of her flowers.  Anyone else remember that?  These flowere were included in some blog candy I won several months ago.  I took them out of the package and added them to the drawer of the rest of my flowers, so I don't know the name.
This "Mom" cut is from the Mother's Dy 2010 cartridge.

The beautiful digi is from Designed 2 Delight.  It's one of my favorites and colored with colored pencils.

This card isn't anything fancy, but it was fun to try something new and I like the end result.    Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderfully blessed weekend!
