Happy Son-Day

Spring is here!  And, it has been bittersweet for me the past couple of years.  Tomorrow would have been my Mother's 87th birthday!  Happy Birthday, MOM!!  I know you can hear me from Heaven!

Taylored Expressions is a new Member Company over at SCS and offered up some freebies to celebrate!  They also offered up some chances to win! 

So, you know it, I downloaded the digis and created a card!

I used all scraps - I am back to using up what I have!!  The flower stickers were left over from a baby card I made ages ago and don't even remember where they came from; the cs was outta my pile and the ribbon came from Mike's 3 or 4 for a buck!!  I colored up the butterflies with my Bic's and punched out the sentiment with SU! oval punch!

Thanks for checking this out!
Huggz,
April

PS ~ Don't forget to stop by Deedee's tomorrow (Monday) to see if you won the $5 voucher to the store for leaving a comment here this weekend on the HOP!
