Now on to my project: 

(click on picture for close up view)

One of the things on my bucket list is to learn how to sew.  My grandmother was a pretty good seamstress.  In fact, she sewed my Mom's wedding gown as well as the wedding gowns of a few of my Mom's cousins and friends.  My Mom was my grandma's assistant and would help her with some of the easier sewing tasks.  Sewing is one of those things that always makes me think of my grandma.  So, I thought a sewing machine image would be great for a Mother's Day card.

What I love about this image is that it doesn't require a lot of coloring.  LOL  I paired it with some green cardstock that I embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and then added some pink ribbon.  Simple but pretty!

Well, thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day today.  I ran a ton of errands on Saturday so I could relax and just enjoy the day with my daughters.

Please hop on over to Anita's blog next!  Below is the complete lineup in case you get lost along the way:
