Little Swimmers and Mother's Day

Laynee had a GREAT time swimming yesterday. It was her first time going swimming since learning to walk and she just walked right into the water and would giggle. She also liked the little splash pad. Danika, on the other hand, preferred to stay dry! I would get her feet wet but that was it. But she did look cute with her pigtails and her sunglasses!
I love this card that I made a couple of days ago with my Bloomin' Beautiful set! It is a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 groovy Guava base. This has become my favorite card size (thanks Beate!). I used my favorite DSP- Afternoon Tea. Then I stamped the flower twice in Black Stazon on Whisper White. I colored it in with my blender pen and Groovy Guava ink. Then I cut a few of the petals out of one flower and put it on my main image with dimensionals. I don't have a Mother's Day sentiment : ( So I used the Rough Edges Alphabet to spell "mom" and then punched it out with my small oval punch. I attached a piece of hodgepodge hardware over the sentiment. Fun, huh? I am really loving my hodgepodge these days!!!
The kids are going to be late for school if I don't get moving!

This is one of the prettiest mothers day cards I've seen -- I'm going to do it for my stamp club! Thanks for such great ideas -- I love your blog and tell everyone that stamps about it! Have a great day.
