Surving the Empty Nest- I Am More than a Mom

When someone is on your mind, let them know!

Good Monday morning and welcome to my life for a few minutes!!  I have been busy remodeling our house after a water leak.  I can finally say that life around here is back to normal and I appreciate more than ever the ability to have running water in my house.  

I hope this Monday morning finds you healthy and ready to start the week!  I want to start off my day by sharing a card I designed and created to let someone know I am thinking about them.
I have fallen in love with all the digi stamps created by Sherri Baldy at "My Besties" and today's card highlights one of her designs. This week's challenge was to create a card for a baby or child and my card has a home with a little girl who has been on my mind.

This is a shaped card and as you can see it is round.  The Silhouette Cameo was used to create the shape and weld the back and front together to make a card.  The adorable "Bestie" image was colored using Photoshop.

I always like adding a punch of color.  In this case, flowers and a bow were added to complete the card.  This card was intentionally made to brighten someone's day, thus the use of the bright colors.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Besties Challenge - Baby and Kids Cards
My Creative Moments - Anything
Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes
Pile It On - Pretty Hair 
Love to Create Challenge Blog - Bingo (ribbon, blue, flowers)

Thank you for stopping by today.  
Have a fabulous week.
