Mother's Day Blog Hop-Exploring Cricut

Good morning!!!  Exploring Cricut is having a blog hop and challenge starting right now and going through Saturday May 11th. You will have until 10pm EST to link up your new project. And guess what! There will be a prize at Exploring Cricut and some blog candy along the hop!!!!
I sure hope you had a great weekend and are now ready to hop along with us for our 'Mother's Day Blog Hop'!!
Now if you got here from Diana's then you are headed in the right direction. If you just stopped by to see what I've been up to, well thank you! How about joining us for our blog hop. Just head to the start right here and hop along. You will be amazed at the awesomeness that my DT Sister's have created for Mother's Day!!!
For my card I went really CAS. I started with an A2 card and rounded the bottom corners. The bg patterned cardstock I pulled out of my stash. I cut 'Mother' from the Mother's Day 2010 cartridge. It and it's shadow. They are on the #9 & 19 spots on the overlay. I cut them at 2.25 inches. I then coated the top layer with some Stardust Stickles. I added some faux pearls from Recollections and finished off the front with some ribbon and a double bow that I dyed and crinkled. For the inside my sentiment is from the 'Mother's Day' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I also added some faux pearls on the inside.
And you know that I can't let a blog hop go by without giving a little bit of blog candy myself. All I ask is that you have a U.S. or Canadian address and leave me a way to get in touch with you. If you don't leave me a blog or email addy, I will just post on my blog and you will have a week to get in touch with me. I will announce the winner on Sunday evening, May 12th. (see photo of candy below)
Now you next stop is Donna.  If you get lost, just head back here and see the listing below to find your place.
Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
