For Mom, Just Because

First time using this cute digi by From the Heart.  Don't you remember picking a flower (or weed) and bringing it in to your mom?  Every child does.  In fact one of my daughters (28) was visiting yesterday and picked me a bouquet of  "flowers" (weeds) and gave them to me as a bit of humor, reminiscing  the days when she would bring them to me with such joy, knowing that I would love them and display them in a vase.  A word to you young moms - take time for things like that.  Go along with their joy and their childishness.  It is over waaayyy too soon.

So I made this card, thinking about those years so long ago and even if I don't give this one to my mom, I know that maybe one of my grandchildren will want to give it to their mom sometime.  They like to make a card to give, or use one that I have made.
I used the sketch at i (heart) sketches and was going to put on the sentiment "just bee-cause" but decided to put that on the inside.
The piece of patterned paper is from Doodle Pantry.  Stamped bee in right corner and stamped with Versamark on the card is from a little Close to my Heart set.
Here is the sketch:
The image is colored with pencils and to make him/her look like a girl, I added a flower brad in her hair.
