Mother's Day

Morning everyone!! Hope you had a great weekend. Ours was beautiful with sunshine and just the perfect temperature.
Are ya ready for our new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2? Our wonderfully talented DT Sister Caroline is hosting this week. She has challenged us and you to make a Mother's Day project using any Cricut cut. My Mom loves Humming Birds so that is the direction I went for my card. Using my Explore, I print and cut the Humming Bird from the Lori's Garden Imagine Cartridge. I think it turned out great. I print and cut two so I could pop the top one up. The frame around the Humming
Bird was cut from the Stretch Your Imagination Cartridge. I used the piece that cut from the inside as my sentiment piece on the inside along with a Humming Bird that I print and cut in a smaller size. The pattern paper is from a My Mind's Eye 6x6 pad called Quilting Bee. The ribbon/bow is some seam binding that I crinkled and dyed. The sentiment on the inside is from the 'Mother's Day' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I finished it off with some half white pearls from Hobby Lobby.
Head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the projects that my DT Sister's have made. I'm tellin' ya, awesomeness for sure!!! While you are there, look over in the sidebar for the rules for our challenges. Then head to your crafty room and make a Mother's Day project using a Cricut cut.
I hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)

Hummingbirds are perfect for Mother's Day in my world. My daughter just had two tattooed on her - one for me and my mom, and one with a pink ribbon around the neck for her mother in law. This card is so colorful and beautiful. thanks for sharing.
