Mother's Day Card 3GirlJam

Good Morning My Friends & Welcome Visitors!

My Louie had a birthday on Sunday!  Ol' Lou is now 10 years old!  He was just a puppy when I started my blog and named it after the two of us.  He used to lay on my feet while I worked.  Now he weighs 110 pounds, but he still loves to lay on my feet.  My daughter calls it "Dog on Foot Disease".  If you click on the button on top, you can see pictures of him and read about his rescue.  I will never buy another dog.  It is rescue dogs for me forever!

So today is my hostess day over at 3GirlJam.  I made a Mother's Day card for the kids next-door to give their mom.

The card is from SVG Cuts - "Cards for Mom" Most of the paper is from my stash but I did use pinwheel paper from Echo Papers "I love Sunshine" by Lori Whitlock.  For the crinkle ribbon I used 3GirlJam Tie Dye Bundle 2.  I edged the card with Powder Puff Yellow chalk.

Please stop by and visit me at 3GirlJam if you have a chance and say hello to me there!

The 3GirlJam Shop has five new colors of crinkle ribbon!  So pretty!  You will want them all!   Use the code May when you shop at 3GirlJam and you can get the Pink and White Bundle for just $1.00 with your purchase!
