Welcome to the THANKS MOM BLOG HOP. Thanks for joining us to enjoy all the wonderful crafy inspiration in honor of mothers everywhere from the talented designers in this hop.
You should have arrived here from DEBBIE. If you missed the beginning of the hop, please go back to the start of the hop at DEBBIE - http://www.debseclecticthoughts.blogspot.com/ to start so you don't miss any of the projects. There is a Grand Prize Blog Candy offered so you want to start at the beginning and read how to participate to win.
My project is a Mother's Day card for my daughter from my grandson. Here it is:

Inside of card:
Close ups of inside of card:
For the front of the card, the base is The Paper Company cardstock. The patterned cardstock is from the DCWV Blossoms and Butterflies Stack.
I cut "Whoo loves you?" from the Straight From The Nest Cricut cartridge at a height of 1.75", using Wausau Paper Royal Fiber Sunflower Bark Texture cardstock.
The owl was cut from the Give A Hoot Cricut cartridge at a height of 4", using brown Bazzill cardstock and the following Wausau Paper: Royal Fiber Sunflower Bark Texture cardstock (for the body), Crinkles Mustard (for the belly, wings, triangle between eyes) and Royal Metallics White Gold on Noble White (for the eyes). The very light yellow for the legs and beak are from The Paper Company.
On the inside, the vellum quote is Tiny Tales Vellum by My Minds Eye. The "I Do" is cut from the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge at a height of 1.75" using Wausau Paper Royal Fiber Sunflower Bark Texture cardstock. Since I couldn't find my Happy Mother's Day stamp, I had to write that part.
Here is a screen shot of my Gypsy, as well as the paper on the mat: (sorry the screen shot is blurry, but I haven't figured out how to get a better shot yet.)
I hope you enjoyed my card. This is my first time participating in a blog hop, and I want to thank Debbie for asking me to join. Since I'm new, I'd like to offer some blog candy, but I'm not sure what it is yet. I'm actually at the Mega Meet and will pick up a prize there. Not sure what it will be, but if you'd like a chance to win it, you will need to leave a comment on this post along with a way to contact you. I'll write down the names of the commenters and have my grandson draw the winner. (I'd use an electronic program, but I don't know where to find one and how they work.) You are not required to be a follower to win, but I'd love to have you as one!
Thanks for hopping along wth us. Remember, if you leave a comment on every designers blog hop post, your name will go into the drawing for the Blog Candy that our THANKS MOM BLOG HOP hostess, Debbie is offering as a Grand Prize.
Next up on the hop is the talented DAWN.
