A Simple Mother's Day

Hi All!  I know this is a couple days late but I was too busy having fun on Mother's Day to post- I took my mom to brunch and then we went to Wicked (which was AMAZING!).  My mother's day card didn't end up being too flashy, just the right amount of 'pretty' and 'fancy' as my little cousins would say :)  I used a brand new image that I'd just purchased from Elisabeth Bells digital collection (check them out here) called Pati's Kisses.  The first thing my mom said when she opened it was that it looked just like me when I was little...the only thing that would have been different was I would have been holding my well loved, and slightly falling apart, Raggedy Ann doll instead of a teddy bear.  I know as much as she loves the adults her daughters have become it's nice to remember the times when we were little girls.  Little girl or not I still love spending time with my mom and Mother's Day is just another day set aside for me to do that- and trust me, we both make the most of it!

Your attention to detail and smooth blending is incredible. I know a few people who would love to watch you color sometime.
