Fluttering...Crazy About You...Mother's Day

Good morning everyone! It's a BEAUTIFUL, BLUE SKY kinda of day here in my little mountain town! I hope your weekend was AMAZING!  I went for a couple of hikes with my husband and two kiddos (that are still at home)! I LOVE HIKING!  It saddens me that there are folks that have lived here their entire lives and haven't seen the sights one sees while hiking! I know...not everyone likes to hike...it's hard and exhausting...and I'm very slow...but it's so worth it when you get to your destination!  I'm sharing some photos at the bottom so you can see how BEAUTIFUL it is here!  

This morning my son is in town. He lives in Davis, CA but is moving to Woodland CA. I enjoyed a Chai Latte and breakfast with him! I'm feeling very blessed!  

I do have a card to share with you this morning!  It's a simple card with a bit of rustic elegance and OF COURSE...it's a Mother's Day card!

For this card I embossed a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Fluttering textured embossing folder. I LOVE these butterflies!  I cut a 2 1/2" piece of Burlap Ribbon (so SAD it's retiring) and cut the finished edges so the thread would separate and attached it to the cardstock with Tear and Tape adhesive.  The flowers were punched with the Petite Petals punch and the flower from the Itty Bitty Accents punch set. The centers are It's My Party Enamel Dots from the Occasions Catalog and the sentiment is from the Crazy About You stamp set. You really could use any sentiment with this card...it would make a wonderful birthday, anniversary, wedding or even sympathy card.

For the inside of the card I simply layered a piece of Soft Suede cardstock with Whisper White cardstock on top...no stamping...just blank. I could have and probably should have added a small flower...just to make it special...but instead I kept it simple!

As promised, here are a couple of my favorite photos from our hiking...hoping you get inspired to get out there and hike and walk!  I need to get 30 lbs off so I plan on doing a bunch of it! There's so much BEAUTY out there!
