Celebrating Mom's ~ Card 2

Hi there :) Well there's been a lot of challenges I've wanted to get too but just haven't had the chance to do them. I'm hoping that I'll have some time to myself when my DD goes to work on Sunday. I usually think better when she's not around to drive me nuts...lol...then again she is 15 and everyone keeps telling me they are monsters at that age...I need to hang in there. What I need a vacation...just me away from reality for awhile :) Sound bad...? but in all fairness I never do anything for myself to rejuvenate, relax, and regroup. I don't think I'm going to be able to do that until she 18 :(

I think Mom's need an Island all their own where we can escape to and reinvent ourselves. I want to be waited on hand and foot for a change and fully pampered...oh but it's just a dream away...lol....

Here is another card celebrating moms...hope you all like it...and look no ribbon....lol...I did use paper lace which I'm now in love with...I just love how it finishes the card.
Have Great Day All :)

I can relate to needing a Mommy break. It's going to be a while, but a girl can dream, right?
