My First Mother's Day card for 2014

Good afternoon my friends.  I guess you could say that I'm giving your eyes a break.  This stomach bug is kicking my butt.

I did manage to get a couple cards made yesterday and early this morning because I couldn't sleep. The card I have for y'all in this post uses a beautiful Tiger Lily and Butterfly image from Delicious Doodles.  Teri outdid herself on this one.

I used some zesty colors for this one.  I wasn't too sure I would be able to do these lilies justice, but I think they turned out pretty good.

Thanks so much for popping in today.  I hope y'all have a great rest of your day and God bless.
