Happy Mother's Day!!

Happy Saturday! I hope you're having a fabulous weekend so far! I've been in my studio rearranging and organizing. I've found it works really well to just move the clutter into the hallway! Out of sight, out of mind! LOL!! Soooooo . . . since tomorrow (May 11th) is Mother's Day here in America, I wanted to send good wishes and warm hugs to all the mothers out there!! And . . . I thought I'd post a card I made for my sister to give to her MIL!
This sweet "gardener" was created by my friend, the very talented and super cool artist, Mo Manning! The image is called "Sadie" and is available here in Mo's online store. Here's a close-up . . .
So, here's the deal . . . since my last Mo card was verrrrrry "Clean and Simple" . . . I thought I'd make this one "Fussy and Complex"! hehe!! It's one of my faves . . . a "twisted easel" card. Here's a full view . . .
And a bit of a side-ish view . . .
