Celebrating Mothers

As Mother's Day is approaching Heart 2 Heart is celebrating our Moms. Whether you call her Mama, Ma, Mom, Mother it's that time of the year to celebrate our Mothers. When a child is born a Mother is born and a supernatural Love fills the air. I usually call my mother "Mom" but when I really want to get her attention I call her "Mother!" Then she says "Yes, Daughter" and the conversation begins.
For my card I used Grey Flannel for it's softness and Blush for my Mom's favorite color. I added a flower that reminds me of her paintings (she does water color flowers), a heart for her love and a butterfly that reminds me of new life that she gave me.
The directions to make this easy paper flower can be found Here.
The heart comes from CTMH dimensional elements (Z1278)
The butterfly is the small one from "Fill in the Blank" stamp set (D1465)

Your turn: Gather up your CTMH products and make a treat for your Mom. Snap a picture and link it up to Heart 2 Heart Challenges to be eligible to win a prize and be part of our "Top Ten" for the month of May. Remember to use Close To My Heart products to be eligible to win.
