Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day is just around the corner.  What better image for a Mother's Day card than Mrs. Cleaver from the Sassy Meets Sweet Collection

I used the wonderful Bo Bunny paper in the Gabrielle collection for the dress, strip and background.  Those fun flourishes are done with the free stamp that is included with entire Sassy Meet Sweet Collection or the Bonita's Collection.  You want this flourish, trust me.  Just do it, get the entire collection, it is sooooooooooo much easier than making decisions of which ones to try and live without.
