MDS Monday #13

Isn't Mother's Day great? It was always fun to surprise my mom with stuff when I was a kid, but now that I'm a mom I enjoy it even more. What can I say? I'm a girl who likes to be spoiled and Chris and the kids do a fantastic job of it. :)

Here's my Mother's Day card for the weekly challenge at UDI - it's a 6 x 6 card. I found my original inspiration over at, but my finished project looks nothing like what I was copying. I like to think that means I still have a little bit of creative juice left in me - even after a long day of dealing with children who seem to need every minute of my time. *Sigh* Did I mention that I'm grateful to be a mother? 'Cause I am. Even when they suck my energy away :)

I think I've already posted a link to this video, but here it is again. It explains the technique I used to color my flower. I believe the technique was discovered by Leah Fedynak and the video was created by Cindy Schuster - you can find both ladies on and they are amazingly talented!
