They are out of stock at the moment at Simon Says Stamp but will be back in stock real soon!

♥ A Bit of Sparkle ♥

Hello! I hope all the moms out there had a wonderful Mother's Day! I had a lovely day. Well, it didn't start lovely, since I went to visit my mom's grave. I can't believe she has been gone a year already. My heart will never stop aching for her. She was a living angel. And I know she has now earned her true wings up in heaven, watching down on us all. But I also know that she would not want me to be upset on Mother's Day and would want me to have a wonderful day with my children. So I did! :) It's always a good mommy's day when I don't have to cook!! ;) And I got the best presents in the world! Homemade gifts from the kids! Aren't those the best presents a Mom can get? :)

And the Simon Says DT are showcasing our very own Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Products! I am using the beautiful Loving Heart Clear Stamp Set as well as the super fun Dot Scallop Border Die on my card.  


The papers I used are from the French Flea Market Paper Pad by PhotoPlay.  I added lots of chunky Diamond Dust glitter around the sentiment and I sprayed the Prima flower with some Sheer Shimmer Spritz for some added sparkle.
