Day #9 – and Happy Mothers Day to all Mom’s out there.
I went looking for a picture of my Mom and I had a really hard time finding one of just the two of us!!! That is something I’m going to have to change this fall when we head to Kelowna for my nephews wedding. This picture was taken on the front step of the old farm house in Manitoba where my Dad grew up. We had the amazing opportunity to go and visit this summer at our family reunion. So many memories….
To say I think I have the best mom is just fact. She has a strength, faith, love and understanding like no one else I know. She raised 4 daughters…..that in itself deserves a medal!! She accepts people for who they are…..no judgments made. I cannot even begin to list all the things she’s done for me and taught me. She’s nurtured me, taught me, dressed me, held me, shouted at me, kissed me, loved me unconditionally. There’s nothing like my moms hugs…..no matter how old I am. It just seems to make everything better and two provinces away is way too far away sometimes…..so Skype is my best friend. There are not enough words I can say to describe just how important my mom is to me and what a powerful influence she continues to be in my life.
So, Happy Mother’s Day Mom……. I love my mom to the moon and beyond.
Hello once again!! Here is another Mother’s Day card I made…..this one was snatched up pretty quickly at work when I took it there to show the girls…..it never made it past the first girl!! I REALLY love this die cut from Memory Box called Sefafina Heart …. just check it out!!
Isn’t it just so delicate and lovely?!!! I added some bling to it just for those special mother’s. My card base is some DP I’ve had in my stash for so long and I have no idea where or when I picked it up. I think it makes for a very nice contrast for a background.
My Mother’s Day sentiment is from my Close To My Heart sentiment set called “A Little Everything” which you’ve seen me use before. That love lacey border is the Martha Stewart Elegant Lace punch.
So, there it is…..very pink…..very feminine. I actually did another one but went with a brown and orange sort of combo…..that one was grabbed right away too and I had intended to add bling to it too…..didn’t get a chance!! lol. Here’s what that one looked like……same layout (only reversed), just different color combo and I used my Stampin’ Up! Scallop Trim Border punch:
Now, what card to post next?? Are you getting tired of your emails filling up yet if you’re a subscriber…..lol.
Good day my amazing blog friends!! I thought I’d better post a couple of Mother’s Day cards too so the amazing Mother’s don’t think I’ve left them out!! This is a card we did at my last Stampin’ Up! demo night and I absolutely LOVE it and the layout. It’ll be a very versatile layout for my collection as it would also make a wonderful wedding card. First of all, just check out this amazing flower stamp!!
I just love this set from Stampin’ Up! and it’s called Mixed Bunch. One of the best things about this set is it comes with a matching punch so you get the wonderful little cut out scallop edges to the flowers. We punch the flower out around the stamped image and then again on a piece of the Concord Crush cardstock, rounded up the edges of the flowers, layered them and attached it with some pop dots. The Elegant Lines embossing folder is also one of my favorites from Stampin’ Up! And check out the Ruffled Ribbon!! I just love the look of that ribbon!! The colors we used for this card were Concord Crush and Wysteria Wonder (which is starting to become one of my favorite SU colors!!)
Check out this adorable sentiment for the inside of the card!!! I love it!!! It’s from the ‘Well Scripted’ stamp set and is just sooo perfect for the Mother’s Day card.
So, here it is in full size. I really like the look of the elements of this card and think it would look sooo stunning as a wedding card. Switch up the colors to a beautiful tone on tone or a white and cream mixture. Yup….a definite layout keeper….lol.
Thank you my friend for checking out this little gem…..how about one more Mother’s Day card I made using one of my new Memory Box dies…..
