Mother's Day/Spring at My Craft Spot!

Hello, my dear friends! I hope you had a blessed weekend. :o)

For this week's challenge at My Craft Spot, you have a choice! We are celebrating Mother's Day and Spring, so take your pick and join in the fun! :o)

For my mom's card this year, I'm honoring a sweet and special part of our relationship: our weekly Starbucks dates! :o)
We make a lot of goofy and fun memories over our special drinks! Regardless of how busy life gets, I make it a point never to miss one of these dates or turn down an invitation for a spontaneous one. Everything gets tossed aside so I can spend a beautiful hour or two with her. :o) What we order varies based upon season or mood, of course! For this I made her a Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino with a cut file from Lettering Delights' Love You a Latte set. :o)

I made the whipped cream with liquid applique, which was such fun! If you enlarge this close-up, you'll see that I covered it with glitter before heating it:
The sparkly whipped cream is covered with Tickled Pink sequins, which serve as pink sprinkles. (Shouldn't everything come with pink sprinkles?) I centered them with tiny pearls. To make her glass fancy, the rim is trimmed with pink rhinestones. The black pearls in the drink are the cookie crumbles. :o)

I was anxious to use the fun new Flowers- Rolled Roses metal dies again, which is trimmed in Star Dust and centers my Pink Bubblegum bow. The sentiment is from Tiny Tags 2, which is cut out with the coordinating Tiny Tags metal dies. The polka dot flower and sentiment papers are from Doodlebug's Hello Spring. 

My background paper is from Pebbles' Front Porch collection and I used my La-La Land Crafts Filigree Corner metal die to adorn the corners. Each is accented with graduating sizes of Recollections pearls. 

Be sure to flutter on over to My Craft Spot to see what my teamies have created to inspire you! I hope you'll play along with us this week! I look forward to seeing what you create. :o) Have a blessed day!
