Mother's Day 2

I know, Mother's Day seems like a long time away, but it is almost the end of January already! Where is the time going!?

The challenge this week at High Hopes Rubber Stamps is "For A Girl" which gave me another reason to make another Mother's Day card :) 

I am blessed to still have my mom in my life - she is one of my best friends. I also have my mother in law, and my mom will often ask me to make a card for her to give to my Grandmother. My Grandmother LOVES flowers and animals so I have a feeling this one just may go to her but you never know.......

For this card I added some diamond folds - I love this look and there are quite a few options on the template to use.  

They are kind of time consuming to do but in the end, with a little bit of patience, a metal ruler and a sharp Exacto knife it can be done.
