Bloggers Challenge






This week our challenge was to make a Mother's Day card. I had this card in mind ever since I bought this set from Stampotique (thanks Vicki!). There is a story behind it and my family "gets" the card, but others might not if they didn't know the story.

My daughter loves to play Guitar Hero with me. Even though she doesn't really know what she's doing yet, she loves to grab the guitar, sit with me and hit the stummer button (or whatever you call it). My husband grabbed the camera this day and snapped this picture of us. She's a doll when she wants to be and this is one of the times that just cracks me up. I always say "Do you want Mommy to rock?" and she says "Mommy rocks". Her favorite tune "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" by Pat Benatar.

I got this stamp this week and knew exactly what I wanted to do and was thrilled with the way the card came together. This girl reminds me of the one I use as my character on Guitar Hero.
