Mother's day Card

I have a unique situation when it comes to Mother's Day!  I have a mom of course and I have a step-mom who I love to pieces!  Oh and because I am married I have a MIL and I can't forget my dear Grandma who is 98!!  So I am very busy this time of year making cards!  I have the first 2 done!  Whew, only 3 more to go!! I am struggling to get the rest finished. My back is still out and I can only sit and craft for around 20 mins. before I get very stiff and uncomfortable...It is getting better but super slow for the type of ruptured disc I have...Anyhow on to the pics!!
This was made with DCWV paper stack Blossoms and Butterflies
I loved making the Flower!  There are all kinds of tutorials out that 
can teach you how to make them it is a bit tricky but well worth the effort as you can see!
Please tell me what you think!

Now for the next one!
I cut this on my E with an MTC file that was on the gallery!  The paper for the background
Was a great find on clearance for 1.99 and it was 24 sheets with a flower theme!
Thanks for looking!!

Freebie Background

I was browsing the free coloring pages through Google search and came across this page and thought it would look great as a background using the Cri-Kits gel pens!! 
It is called Snowflakes Coloring page.
I think it doesn't really make me think of snowflakes 
But it did seem interesting enough to pull it into MTC and
see how it would look so here it is!!
