MOM, you are the best

Another Sunday and more Mothers Day cards to share. I have so many sketches in my head that I'm trying to make the cards before I forget the sketches! You are probably thinking why doesn't she write them down? I am not a good artist, I cannot draw - -at all! So I print them off and I keep them in a notebook for future reference!

Both cards are using supplies from the Authentique 'Grace' line...

Kraft cardstock from Michaels, ribbon and lace trim are from my stash, flower by Creativeco-op, adhesive pearls by K&Co.

Again I used papers from the Grace line along with the cardstock image, strip of peach cardstock from my stash and punched with a Martha Stewart punch, adhesive pearls by Zva, flower by Creativeco-op, and ribbon from Michaels.

We are experiencing some temps in the low to mid 60's here so I am debating on whether to go out and do some yard work or continue making cards? Hmmm....and I am still in my jammies sipping on a nice, warm cup of coffee...not feeling the green thumb yet.

Have a great week!

Good morning to you all! I actually woke up today to a foreign actually sounded like birds chirping!! And sunlight! Has spring finally arrived? *grin*

I have a short post this morning as I really need to get going with designing the bridal shower invitations. Below is another mothers day card I created since I already had 'stuff' laying all over my craft table.

Pattern papers are from Prima, image is from Beatriz Jennings etsy shop, Spellbinders die, ribbons from my Craft Spot, flowers from Michaels, heart stickpin from Maya Rd.
That is it from me for today. Have a great week ahead!

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!

Get well soon

Happy Sunday! What a beautiful afternoon it has turned out to be.
I have a card to share with you that I am entering over at Sentimental Sundays - the theme is Get Well with a sentiment. I looked high and low for a stamp that had something to do with being ill, or a broken arm or leg or even a thermometer - I have nothing except a sentiment so that is what I worked with.

The stamped sentiment is from Stampin Up.
Card stock is from Stampin Up, pattern papers are from Graphic 45's Secret Garden line. The tiny rosebud and ribbon are from Michael's and the pearl stick pin is from Prima.

I'm off to post my card over at Sentimental Sundays - speaking of Sundays, enjoy yours!
