Sharing Inspiration for Your Mother's Day Weekend

Happy Saturday to you!
Many of us are thinking about Mother's Day
and scrambling to make cards and 
find just that perfect gift.
I struggle when it comes to gifts for my mom.
She is a pretty 'simple' woman
who really does require much and what
she does need, she usually goes out
and gets before anyone else can.
So to be truthful, I am still trying to decide
what it's going to be.

To help inspire us all, 
I thought I would share this lovely creation
made by Mona Pendleton of Cupcake's Creations.
As you know, she is my friend and colleague
as a senior designer over in
and this was inspired by this week's
color inspiration photo.

Mona is also on the 2010 Spellbinders Team
and they have featured this wonderful card
on their blog/forum as well.

Here are the colors again for you to see.
She did a fabulous job, didn't she!!

So here is what I want to know....
How will you celebrate Mother's Day?
Are you ready with a gift or are you still
searching or creating?
Do you have a favorite Mother's Day
memory that you could share?

Please leave a comment and let me know.
It's always so lovely to hear from YOU!
