Over at BBTB2, I am actually hosting this week's challenge!
I decided to go with Mother's Day because, well, it's going to be here in 6 days!!!
Are you prepared?!?!
Well, if not, this is a perfect opportunity to make her a card or project and show it off to the rest of us :)
So I hope you will join us this week!!!

Here is my project for my Mom:

My first shaker card!!!!
I had a lot of fun making this card and I have a video to show you how it all came together.
I used Doodlecharms, Walk In My Garden, and Elegant Edges.
I am also entering this into the challenges over at My Craft Spot (Mother's Day/Spring) and Exploring Cricut - Mother's Day Project & Use Ribbon - there are some awesome prizes up for grabs with their challenge, so be sure to check it out and enter your projects there too!
