Happy Mother's Day

Good Morning!! What a week this has been, This is probably be my last post for the month ( I may sneak in a few pictures from my daughters birthday some time next week). Work is getting busy and I have taken on some more projects that are due at the end of the month. I am just getting this posted with just hours to spare, so I will get right to it. I made my mother's day gift for my mom this year. She is also going to be getting some plants next weekend but she wanted to pick them out.  Here is what I made:

Ok so I am not 100% sure what all I used for these projects but for the first one you can find the step by step instructions at The Kraft Journal  .  I know I used K Andrew Designs Art Stamps: Coffee Time, Coffee & Tea For You & Me for the card. I also used Martha Stewarts Border Punch: Doily Lace. For the tea cup I used Tags Bags, Boxes and More 2 cricut cartridge (not sure of the size).

I am entering these into the following challenge:
