I hope you have had a nice week. For the past couple of days I have been caught up in some projects that needed doing around our house including some pretty vigorous spring cleaning! We finally have some nice warm weather here and I find that good weather is always inspiring.
Did you have a chance to visit all of the sites participating in the Made for Mom with Love celebration? The range of ideas and items offered is really remarkable.
I am sharing the file for this special Mother's Day card as my gift to you - see the original post HERE for the download links.
If you didn't get a chance to see everything yet, here is a list of all the sites that are participating. (There are 18 in total so you may want to split the list to visit them all over a few days).

Midnight Madness at Cricut.com (and new Cuttlebug folders)

Cricut.com has promoted a special midnight madness sale which will take place tonight at 10 p.m. and lasting until 2 a.m. (Mountain Time). I don't know what the offers will be so I'll have to stay up late to check them out! There are a couple of cartridges I would like to have - if the price is right...

There were some lovely new Cuttlebug folders announced yesterday for Hello Thursday - you can see them HERE (click on "New Folders" on the left side of the page). My favorite is this set of four "Contemporary Nature" folders.
50% off Sale at Silhouette Online Store

There is a 50% off sale going on right now in the Silhouette Online store. This is a great time to stock up on files and if you have a subscription your money will go twice as far as usual. This sale will last until May 2, 2013 (at 11:59 Pacific Daylight Time). There are over 35,000 shapes in the store so give yourself plenty of time to browse!
During the sale, there is a free shape every day instead of just one that lasts all week so be sure to check in each day to download the file. The triangle flags above are today's free shape.
Silhouette America announced that in the Silhouette Online store they are getting close to download number 50 million. If you happen to be the lucky person who downloads number 50,000,000 you will win $1800 in credit to the Silhouette Online store - now that's a lot of downloads! Good luck to you - it sure would take a while to spend that much at 99 cents a file...
Clearance Sale on SVGs at Lettering Delights (extended to May 6th)
If you use a cutting machine and software program that accepts SVG format, Lettering Delights is offering some great deals on SVG files. The sets are in SVG format only and will be leaving the Lettering Delights site.
All of the SVG format products at Lettering Delights are on sale for $1 a set. This sale has been extended and will now end on May 6th - click HERE to shop the 188 individual sets that are available.
Remember, if you "purchase" the monthly freebie first (click HERE to see this month's freebies) you will received a code for 25% off your next purchase in your confirmation email - making this deal even more tempting.
Keep an eye on your email for more offers - it seems everyone wants to offer a special deal for Moms!
I'll be busy working on my house projects and finishing up a digital project to upload for printing today. Maybe I can sit outside with my laptop to enjoy this weather while it lasts... Do you have any special plans for the weekend? I hope you have a great time, whatever you are doing.
