Here is mine...
One of my favorite sets is being retired called: Messages for Mom. I just love the letters along with the sentiments the stamp set comes with. Also, one of my favorite DSP, Mocha Morning Speciality. This DSP has been used for so many occassions, so I may end up stocking up on it before they run out.

Here is a close up of the lettering, which I ended up cutting each one and adding Stampin Dimensionals under them to pop up the word "MOM".

I was so happy that I got this Bigz Die called: Flower Daisies #2, which I alternated between Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler cardstock. At the end, added basic rhinestones in the middle to complete this flower.

In the end, I couldn't resist but to add 3 small hearts along the side, easy to do when you use the small heart punch. My way of sending extra love to her.

For the sketch design, the Pals Paper Arts PPA133, designed by Margaret Moody came in very handy when thinking of what I wanted to make. For me, this was a terrific sketch to use and I hope my Mom enjoys.
Here is the sketch
