And wishing you ALL a most joyful day!!
We had a fish fry with the kids Friday evening and I had lunch and spent the afternoon with my mother yesterday, so today I'm enjoying a nice quiet day to get a few things done around the house and yard. I thought it might rain, but the sun is out and calling my name! : )
This is the card I created for my mother. I made it last week using the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #115, but I never got it posted until now.
The card is a standard 4-1/4 x 5-1/2" using Melon Mambo as the base. I love black and white with a POP of bright color and I thought she would really like this.
Another terrific sketch by Karen Giron...one I will use often! . . .
And here is another look at my card . . .
Now, I've got something else to share with you that I know you'll enjoy! A couple months ago I visited a local quilt shop and picked out some darling fabrics for a baby quilt. My mother is an unbelievable quilter and within days she had this finished for her soon to be first GREAT grandchild. My daughter Katie is expecting a BABY GIRL in July!!! :)
I didn't know how much fabric to buy, but there was plenty. Mom added some "scraps" she had on hand to complete 2 baby quilts! This first one was a printed panel, but she quilted all around the grass, trees and animals to make it look like it was pieced together. Don't you think this one will make a great wall hanging in the baby's room?
some close ups....
The second quilt was made with blocks and panels of printed fabric she pieced together and quilted by machine. It is a nice large size for baby to lay on.

Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs...
since the payment is pure love.
