Mother’s Day ~ The Cards. The Hat.

Posted on

Following are the two Mother’s Day cards I created for my mom and my mom-in-law.

I had a thing for flowers this year! On the first I sponged a small paper doily with moss green ink  to use as the background for the flowers. On the second card, I embossed the background with the Cottage Floral embossing folder from Craft Concepts then colored it with chalk.

And finally, here is the hat I wore for Hat Day at church. Lace, ribbon and a vintage pearl button!       

Wearing hats is not the norm in my church, so this is a fun way to include all women in the the celebration.

I was blessed with a day full of sunshine, love and laughter.





Simply Said Stampin’ Up Card

I made this card Friday night at in the Rubber Room at Jan’s Customer Appreciation Event. The card is 4.25 x 5.50 with the fold at the top. I’m normally not a fan of the color yellow, but decided to go with it just to get out of my ‘color rut’ of pinks, blues and greens. I’m so glad I did! I LOVE this card. It’s going to be hard parting with it.

Do you find yourself always reaching for the same color(s)?
