Basket of Flowers

Hi friends.  Where did the week go?  We worked on opening our pond and had to take the filter box out and reseat it because it was leaking around the sides because it had
been displaced because of the ground shifting in the cold winter weather and ice!
What a job, but it is done and when I get the rock all back around the edge and cleaned up, will take some pictures.  Oh, did I mention that the pump didn't work when we went to start the filter, so had to replace that too........

Today's card is for my daughter for Mother's Day.  She never has time to look at my blog, so no need to not show it now.

Beautiful stamp by Northwoods Rubber Stamps
Basket full of Hydrangea's (PP9089)
I stamped it twice and cut out the front pink flower and
the blue flower on the far right with the leaves and colored them and popped them up.

Finished card
Papers - Designer paper is K& Co. 
Spellbinders Grand Decorative Oval die
Paper lace doily
Inside Sentiment says Because Your Special...Happy Mother's Day
Dragonfly is K & Co, cut from a border set
Picket fence pink ribbon is from Michael's
Corner punch is Paper Shapers
Pearls are Queen and Co.
Colored with Copics
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great Thursday.  Until later......

Goodness gracious I am really loosing it. I thought I had commented on this earlier in the week because I was receiving an email every time someone commented on your post. I must have clicked the wrong button for sure. (They say the mind is the first to go....)

I wanted you to know how BEAUTIFUL that basket looks. It really really looks real. You totally rocked this one Sue.

Happy Mother's Day tomorrow!
