Mother's Day Shaker....

Hello And Happy Monday to ya!!!
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend & Mother's Day!
I know I did! I had a yummy breakfast made by
my boys and I got to enjoy the day of actually
doing NOTHING!! Ahhhh my kind of day! :)

Since it took me FOREVER to get my Mother's day
card done... I thought I would post it today for ya...
I honestly had a hard time coming up with something
until the last minute... but once I came up with it...
I was on a roll until it was completed! 
I don't normally use purple in my projects.... 
I guess I'm just a (BLUE) kind of gal! 
But, my mom does like Purple and that
is why I made this card... I mean... she IS my MOM!!
So, that's what inspired me to create this! :)

YES..... TANYA... It's another Shaker Card!!! Hahaha
