Hello, Having some chilly weather here on Mother's Day. Enjoying a hot cup of coffee before I get to busy.
Thunderstorms with lightning heading this way. Looks like I might be getting a little wet later going to see my Mom. Hopefully the storms won't last to long.
Sharing with you all the card I created for my Mom for Mother's Day.
This one was created using a napkin. Isn't that napkin gorgeous with those sweet little blue birds. Oh I love it so much.
I wasn't for sure where to place the sentiment because I didn't want to cover up any of the pretty image. So I decided to put it in the center.
I also added a light blue sheer ribbon so that the image would still show through. The sentiment is from S.U. I also added a little pearl next to the sentiment. I think she will love this one. I know I do.
Also I wanted to share a recipe with you all. This cake is called by several names. But I call it Mandarin Sunshine Cake.
I made one this past Easter and I'm making one today to take to my Mom's for the dinner. Going to be adding some candles to this one. It's one of my sister's birthday today.
