Happy Mother's Day !

Thank you so much for stopping by The Open Window today!

This is just a super-quick post to share the card I made
for my mom for Mother's Day.
I actually haven't had an opportunity to give it to her yet
as she spent the day with my step-dad taking 
a drive on a very beautiful, sunny day.
She stops by my blog quite often, so hopefully I am
posting late enough that she will have it in her hands
before she actually pays a visit : )

You've seen this design here before as it was one of last month's
releases over at The Craft's Meow.
The flower image is from 'Beautiful Spring' and the sentiment
from 'To My Parents', both from TCM.

I layered the flower by stamping it several times on this
beautiful designer cardstock from SEI.
The embossed frame is by Sizzix.

The photo definitely doesn't do the colors justice.
I love the design and know that I will use it again and again.

On a complete DIFFERENT subject....

Today was a big day in our house as my husband Paul's
lifelong soccer team, Manchester City won their first
title in 44 years!

I literally took pictures directly from the television
throughout the 90+ minutes of the game.

It was definitely a nail-biter as in the....

our team managed to tie the score and in extra-time...

We came up with the result we needed!

Be thankful I shared the abbreviated version because I
snapped over 75 photos!  LOL

Thanks for swinging by....I'll see you soon!

Love your cards...simple and lovely. The last two goals in the Man City game were fabulous...they definitely deserved to win the Premier League Championship.
