Finishing up Mother's Day Cards...

I think I am finally finished with all the cards for my work peeps, LOL! Never knew I would be making so many but the money went into my scrap fund (I want a G...) anyway here are some I have been saving for you (my own mom's isn't included for two reasons: 1. I haven't made it yet and 2. she reads my blog ...of course!).

This paper is from the Penny Lane Collection by My Minds Eye, Flowers from a giant assortment that I got free at Archivers (you know one of those coupon freebies...they actually had some of the tubes for sale after the freebie day) and assorted bling, ribbon and  tulle from my stash. the butterfly is from Petaloo and it was also free from an Archiver's coupon giveaway.I used Glue Dots for both the flowers and butterfly. I use TONS of mini Glue Dots on my projects. If I ever have a doubt about what will stick, I default to glue dots. I wrote on the front of the card: For you, Mom in my black Sakura Souffle pen (LOVE THESE). It shows up much better in person than in my photo (sorry about that!)



This one is not really my colors but I'm really happy with the way it turned out. The flower is made by hand, just me gluing down some ruffles that I got from the fabric store (Hancock's...the ruffles were attached to the same color pink background and I just cut them off) The lettering is felt alphas by Making Memories and the trim is from the Poolside collection from Doodlebug Designs. The Bling here is from Kaisercraft and the Fozz Felt looks to be Kaiser as well! (I had to go look at the packaging LOL!) The background paper is a "b" side from Crate Paper Orbitz collection. Love the Crate Paper. 

The colors on these cards are so bright and sunny. They make me smile. I got the Summer Vacation Limited edition Cricut Cartridge last Thursday (I had pre-ordered this at my LSS). Can't wait to go back and do some 12x12 stuff SOON!! Hugs and thanks for commenting...it really makes my day!!

  1. Very pretty cards. At least you will get your mother's day cards done in time. I didn't! But they still enjoy them.
