I got Mother's Day cards finished early!

Hello, everyone! I'm usually scrambling around last minute trying to get my cards done. They usually get done the day they have to go in the mail! But, I got Mother's Day cards done really early this year. I thought Bloomin Beautiful was the perfect stamp set to use for Mother's Day cards. Now if anyone can give me any ideas on Father's Day cards? I have the hardest time making masculine cards! Now on to the recipe for this card!
Recipe:
Cardstock: Georgia Pacific (white), Stampin Up (Barely Banana and Creamy Caramel)
Patterned Paper: DCWV Spring 2007 stack
Stamps: Stampin Up (Bloomin Beautiful) and Studio G (Mother's Day and swirl)
Accessories: Watercolor pencils, blender pen, and Staz-On Timber Brown ink
Also, I distressed the white cardstock the image is on. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Great card. I haven't even started to think about Mother's day yet. I love the colors on your card. I can't help with Father's Day. I am terrible at making mens cards although there is a new manly set in the stampin up mini occasions catty that is perfect for making cards for me. I ordered it but haven't had a chance to play with it yet.

Are you all settled into your new house? My dad was in the Marines when I was a kid and I know how stressful moving can be.
