A few years ago after my sister and I had moved out of my parent's house, we decided that doing something special with mom on Mother's day and dad on Father's Day would mean more than just buying them a gift. So every year we take a day and do something special together...sometimes it costs money and other times we do simple things that are heartfelt AND cost effective! This year my sister and I are going out to my parents place to do yard work, do their grocery shopping and maybe even clean the house a little. My mom has been so busy with sick parents (her mom and dad) that I thought little things like this would mean the most to her.
So enough about my plans for this weekend! I have some cards to share with you in honor of Mother's Day.
I used the Madeline Collection from Prima for these two cards. I just love this paper line with it's bright colors, flowers and butterflies. The turquoise and hot pink combo is especially nice! On the first card I cut my extra pieces of the paper into strips and punched them with an EK Success border punch. I crinkled and dyed white seam binding for the ribbon and Glimmer Misted the mulberry paper flowers (which are from I Am Roses). The lock is from Kaisercraft (using up my leftovers from the design team submission) and I used the Spellbinder's Grommet Tags die for the sentiment. The stamps are from Close to my Heart (a retired May Word Puzzle set) and the ink is Close to my Heart's Cotton Candy and Chocolate dye ink.
I hope you enjoyed these cards and now feel motivated to go create something special for your mom. Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!
