Mothers Day

I know. It's another month away from Mothers Day but I am getting a head start! A few friends at work have asked for them so I am trying to make as many as I can now. I am going to be very busy over the next several weeks...we have finally set a date for the bridal shower! And my lovely future DIL suggested I make the invitations and favors. But enough of that - - for now.

This first card uses Authentique papers and image from their Grace line - perfect for Mothers Day cards.

The ivory pleated trim is from Melissa Frances, ribbon and button are from my stash.  My next card uses Graphic 45 'French Country' papers and image.

Kraft cardstock is from Michaels store, stamped sentiment is from Hero Arts, ribbon is from Stampin Up, button & doily from my stash and twine is from Papertrey Ink. This last card uses pattern papers from Creative Imaginations.

White and purple cardstock are from Stampin Up along with the stamped sentiment that I embossed with Ranger's Seafoam white embossing powder, seam binding ribbon is from Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, die cuts from Spellbinders and Papertrey Ink, and the heart shaped button is from my stash.

For now, that is it. It is such a gorgeous Sunday afternoon, I think I need to go out and get some fresh air, maybe clean up the backyard; vacuum out my car, sweep out the garage. Well, maybe not all of that but I can't just stay in and not take advantage of the weather!

Have a great week!


  1. Wow! You've been busy! The cards are beautiful. I finished putting the screens back in the windows today in anticipation for warmer weather.

  2. Those cards are really cute. I like the first one the best.
