SVG: World's Best Mom

Like almost everyone, I think that my Mom is the "Best Mom in the World."  Just one of the many reasons for that thinking is because she's alway encouraged creativity. Growing up our home was always stocked with crayons, construction paper, play dough, etc. While she is an awesome quilter and needle artist,  there's not too many crafty things she hasn't tried.  My first crafting memories include using her liquid embroidery tubes (remember those?!) to make dresser scarves.  She also belonged to a few "Craft of the Month" clubs and I loved helping her with them or doing those kits by myself.  And for Christmas or birthdays we'd always get something "artsy", like a Spyrograph, Creepy Crawlers, or a weaving loom (every year I'd give my Grandmothers those teeny tiny woven looped hot pads!)  So it's no wonder that her kids grew up loving to create and craft.  In the past few years, my Mom has gotten into card making (with beautiful paper embroidery) and scrapping (recent vacation trips).  The photo below was taken of us in October at a Scrap Event.  We were really decked out with our shirts, tiaras and drop earrings!  Mom's love of creativity has been passed on to her grandchildren as well.   The youngest (age 3) checks her purse for play dough whenever Grandma visits!
To honor all the "World's Best Mom"s out there, I have a free SVG file for you. 
EDIT--
SORRY THIS FILE IS NO LONGER FREE. 
YOU CAN PURCHASE IT HERE
This file has three layers so that you don't have to try to remember where the centers of
the "O"s (and D and B) have gone!  I think it would be great on a Mother's Day card
or tag.  You could even make a cake topper with it.
As always, I'd LOVE to see what you create with my files.
