Three For You

**YIKES...After the problems with blogger...I seem to have lost my challenge links on this post, If you are visiting because I entered this card into a challenge, I do apologize.***


First, I want to shout out a big CONGRATULATIONS to Penny (luvs 2 Paint & Create) for winning the "Windsong" digi during the Mother's Day Weekend Blog Hop.  I can't thank all of you enough for all your sweet comments and I do hope that I was able to give you a little bit of inspiration.


Second, I become a grandma again on Saturday...My 1st grandson was born (I already have 2 granddaughters) and it was the best Mother's Day gift I have ever received.  I can't wait to go visit and give him lots of love.  Congrats to my son, Chris and his wife Erin!!

Now, thanks for being so patient, here is my card.

I used a freebie, "Three for You", that I picked up from Tiddy Inks some time ago and have had it colored and waiting to be made into a card.  It's kind of a modern looking image and I wanted to keep the card simple, clean and modern looking.  I did my three button layering that I seem to like so much lately and added Glossy Accents to the stripes on the yellow/blue vase and orange polka dots on the blue vase.  The centers of each flower have a mini brad added.  Once, I figured out what direction I was going with this card, it ended up being pretty quick to finish.

Since I am feeling so blessed this week, I am going to give away a set of my note cards from this post to one lucky commenter.  It's a set of 6 note cards with envelopes included.  You can keep them for yourself or they would make a great gift for someone.

Thanks for stopping by!

Your card is beautiful, Pat, but can I say that your grandson is absolutely gorgeous or maybe baby boys prefer precious? LOL! Congratulations on both a beautiful card and a beautiful addition to your family.

Thanks for visiting!
