An additional entry will be given to those who comment on the Throwback Tuesday posts for that month.The prize: a big ol' box stuffed with scrapbooking goodies!Sorry, but due to crazy shipping costs, this challenge is open to the US only!

My thoughts from April '11...

Our theme this month was Mothers Day - I know, I know, it's over. But really, do we need a special day to send our mom's a card? I know my Mom going through the experience of nine homeschooled kids definitely deserves cards on days other than just Mothers Day. :)

My Mom loves the simple, yet effective cards, so thats what I tried to work in on my card here. 
Using THIS adorable floral paper from Melody Ross's Homespun Chic collection - so cute! I see myself using this adorable pattern many more times in the future. ;)

Oh, how I love these 'Fun House' chipboard frames - already used half my stash of these precious embellishments!
