April's Pinkalicoius Blog Hop!

Hello everyone!  Can you believe we are almost halfway into the month of April?  I hope all of you had a really nice Easter (or will for some of my friends who haven't celebrated yet! :)  If you're coming from my friend Roberta's blog, then you are in the right place!

This month's assignment was to create a project with a Mother's Day theme.  I decided to make a card for my Mom using the My Pink Stamper "Happiest Moments" stamp set.  I love that this set has a sentiment for just about every occasion you can think of!  It is truly one of my favorites.

When I was a little girl, more than anything else, I loved playing with dolls.  I would spend hours upon hours.  So, I hope when my Mom receives this card, it brings back some happy memories we have shared together.  I love you, Mom!!! xoxox


Recipe

Kate's ABC's Cricut Cartridge - girl with carriage (fit to length for entire image 4 3/4", clothes and accessories layers cut at 3 1/4")

Now how about a little giveaway?  I'm not going to tell you what it is (mainly because I don't know yet LOL), but leave a comment and the winner will get a little something fun from my stash. :)  I'll announce the winner next week here on my blog, and he/she will have one week to contact me to claim their prize.

Your next stop is my friend Tracy.  And in case you missed anyone along the way, here is the entire list again.

Please don't forget once you're done hopping to go back to My Pink Stamper and play along in the challenge with us!  Have a great weekend! :)

What a sweet card. It brings back so many memories of me playing with my dolls as well. My mom and grandma were always making me clothes for all of my dolls. I miss those moments but am now happy to spend them with my precious little girl who is just getting started on her dolls! (She'll be 3 in May.) Thank you for sharing just the right moments. Take care!
