Heartfelt Creations Sending Love Your Way!

Good morning!
It's time to vote for your favorite Design Team member
Here is the link toVOTE

It isn't too early to think about Mother's Day, so here is
my version of a Mother's Day card.
My mother would have LOVED this card, she would have left it up all year!
She loved china tea cups (and you wonder what that has to do with anything right?)
Well it has to do with the beautiful flowers that were always on her cups.
She collected them and displayed them in a pretty curved case.
This card is in honor of my mom.
