Mothers Day

I've been playing around in my room a little more now that the challenge is over. No I didn't win the competition but I don't need to win that to win.  I lost almost 20 pounds in 12 weeks and a total of 21 inches! So I really did win :)  I signed up to continue the punishment Cross Fit because I really do like the intense work outs and I love the results I got!

So... Mother's day is coming up next weekend here in the States. I made another cup and a card and in time to mail them out so they get them before Mothers Day!  I know! I surprised myself too! haha

This is the cup I made...

I belong to All Things Silhouette forum on Face Book and boy do they enable  teach you a lot there. They also have a bunch of files to share. I got the 'M' from there. the font used for the 'Mom' and SuperPower is from Lettering Delights and is called 'Free Spirit'. Only $3 and in a few bundles too.

This is the card I made...

Each Mom is going to get one of each. My Mom will get this cup and Hubby's Mom will get a cup with peach color. Their favorite colors :)

Isn't it a pretty file? Oh! Did I mention that it's FREE!!??!! I didn't? Well, this file came from the great file maker Miss. Meredith over at Birds Cards. She's got a few samples that she did too. Each one is so pretty. She's the same Miss Wonderful that I got that cute little cupid for my V-day box I made for Hubby.

I did mine in a paper piecing technique. I love the final look and I'm sure the Mom's will too. After all... no matter how old you get, Mom's always love something you put the time, thought and effort into making yourself! And if not... I ordered flowers as a back up LMAO!.

Well... that's if for now. I think next I'll make a bling shirt for myself. Or maybe a bling decal. So much fun but so little time. I heart my Silhouette!
