Time for another Simply Create Challenge: What did you say?

Since it is Mother's Day weekend in the US (and Canada), Simply Create challenges  you to create something with sayings that either Moms would say or what someone else may say about or to Moms.

Be sure to check out what the SC team has come up with for inspiration and be sure to add your own creation to the list.

My creation is for my mom for Mother's Day this weekend; so hopefully you are not reading my blog in the next couple of days Mom! If you do, pretend you haven't seen this :) LOL!
Anyway, my card is made up of "Mom-isms" that I have heard my mom say in the past.
I used all CTMH products for this card.
Colors are: Baby Pink, Heavenly Blue, Chocolate and Vineyard Berry.
I used the RGB codes for the CTMH colors (as listed on my blog - check out the CTMH RGB color page) to print out the "Top 10 Mom-isms" on my printer.
I used a variety of fonts from CK and others downloaded from the internet.
Stamp sets used were: Simple Stitches and Dream Big.
The paper kit is: Level II Top Stitch (one of my faves!) and the matching My Stickease are Top Stitch as well.

I inked the blooms and the edges of the paper. The inside flower was made using paper shapers punches and My Stickease. This card was inspired by a sketch from Clean &  Simple Stamping and even though I didn't totally stay "Simple", their design got my creative juices going.

Hope you enjoy my "Mom-isms" and can relate to some of them :).
