Happy Mother's Day

My own mother has been gone for about 2 years and at one time I thought I would not make anymore Mother's Day cards.  
And then.....


My daughter-in-laws started having children and I found a new reason to make a card for this special day.  I presently have two expectant mothers in the family!  This card is for the youngest who is due at the end of May.  It is her first child and we all think it will be a girl!


Today is the start of the next Creative Craft Challenge and we are all using a sketch and Kenny K images from our sponsor.


Card Recipe:
Images: Kenny K - SAHM, Teeny Tiny Wishes from Stampin Up
Paper: Kaiser Kraft Chanteuse Collection, Melon Mambo
