Hapy Mothers Day

Happy mothers day to you all

Today's post has two mothers day cards. One bright orange and another subtle lavender.  Which is your favorite?

I hope you all got a little recognition today for mother's day.  Right now I am enjoying sitting down while my lovely daughter cooks dinner for us all.   She came home from college for the day to celebrate with us.  We had a nice time at the mall searching for dresses.  She was looking for a dress for next Saturday nights senior formal and I was looking for a dress to wear to her graduation.  She lucked out and found two gorgeous dresses that she couldn't decide between.  Both of hers were on the clearance/sale rack for @ 50.00.  I was looking everywhere and didn't find anything.  I have a little more time so it was no big deal that I struck out.  I was glad she found what she wanted.  I think she's going to go with the fancy red dress she found second and will return the more classic/elegant blue one she found first.  She'll go back to school and have her friends give their input.  I hope she sends pictures on the night of the event.  If she does, I'll post them.

I'm not normally an orange person (or even normal at all!) but I'll have to go with the beautifully colored flowers and greenery. I do love the lavender papers, though - they are gorgeous! And I love the color combination.

Happy Mother's Day to you! Your evening sounds ideal - enjoy.
