Here is our blog hop list for Mother's Day challenge #300!

I've never been a part of a Blog Hop so I'm super excited about this one!  I kept my Mother's Day card pretty simple this year.  My mom loves all things chili peppers so I know she'll love this card.  The chili peppers were cut from the Ole cricut cartridge and placed on the card with dimensionals.  I added some Wink of Stella in the white areas & a few embellishments to complete the card.
This is one of my favorite cartridges.  I just LOVE it!  It is so fun!

Be sure to follow the Blog Hop for inspiration as well as opportunities to win multiple prizes.  Become a follower of my blog & leave a comment to be placed in my personal giveaway.  The randomly drawn person will be announced on May 15th.  Winner will get their choice of 3 scrapbook kits/layouts that I create.  
For those of you who are mothers,
Happy Mother's Day!
