To Every Fabulous Mother out there!

Happy Mother's Day to all you fabulous Moms! I hope that everyone has an amazing love filled day! I love this day more than birthdays because everybody has a birthday but not everybody gets the honor of being able to so proudly say I'm a mom. I love being able to so off my adorable boys to the world and this gives me the perfect excuse to showcase THEM! Being a mom is the best thing in the world! I love the challenges of helping them learn new things as they grow and watching them succeed. Everyday is something new in our house and my two boys keep me on my toes for sure :) Here is a picture of my two lovely men....

Ian is my older little man, he is the spunky, charming, entertaining one. Look out Ladies he's going to be a Casanova! Ethan is my littlest man and he is the quiet, observant one I think that he is going to be my brainiac :)

Now to share the card that I made for my own mother. (I hope she doesn't peak and see it before Sunday.) I needed some inspiration to jump start me so I went looking for a challenge. I decided to play along with All Things Unity challenge #30 for this card because their challenge for this week is called "all felt up" and I just bought some colorful wool at Hobby Lobby the other day for another project I'm working on and I have extra. The goal is to make people want to touch or "feel up" your card, lol! Love it! I'm really happy with how this card turned out too:) 


My Supplies used:
Card Base: The Paper Cut
DP: My Mind's Eye
Stamps: Unity Stamp Co
Bling: Prima and American Crafts
Wool: Darice
Die Cutter: Spellbinders (label)
Punch: Ek Success (Flower; its a boarder punch) and We R Memory Keepers (corner rounder)
Ink: Palette, Versamark and Colorbox
Embossing Powder: unknown (sorry the label is gone)


I also want to share with you what I've learned about myself and the diet my husband and I started this week. #1 I'm not good a dieting! 
#2 This diet makes you drink too much water than I like and doesn't allow for enough coffee!
#3 I really like vegtables
#4 I am loving cooking dinner every night now that I look up the recipes at the beginning of the week. No guessing... and no surprises for my husband
#5 Me cooking really stresses out my neat freak husband because I'm a messy cook. (But I clean up after myself)
and this weeks winning recipe was Cilantro Lime Shrimp. 

Now doesn't that look YUMMY? It was :)  You can find the recipe {Here}. I added fresh mushrooms, red onions and halved grape tomatoes to our dish and didn't serve it with rice or noodles like the recipe suggests. Another one of my favorites from this week was Cauliflower Fritters, found on the same site, but my husband wasn't a huge fan...
I hope everyone has an extra special weekend and sorry for such a long post!
