So I sat down to make some Mother’s Day cards and I don’t know where I went wrong… but I ended up with a Sympathy Card. And although I like it maybe I shouldn’t send it instead of a Mother’s Day card… they might get the wrong idea. I wanted to join the current Play Date Cafe Challenge and of course the Lily Pad Cards frame challenge (I didn’t have one of those fancy ones so I made my own – wouldn’t it be nice to win one?). Then I thought that maybe I could make that mother’s Day card after all… what else would I have done with the leftovers (other than hoard them for years)!
