Happy Mother's Day

Happy Day!!! How's your weekend been so far? Mine has been lovely... weekends are always great when the weather calls for flip flops, tees and pretty skits :)

My post will be short... I wanted to show you some (2) of the Mother's Day cards I created. I would've had more but had to mail them out :(

My first card uses the ever so trendy doily. I simply used a paper one and pierced it around. Then stamped the image and sentiment.

Here's a close up. I wanted you to see the shimmer on the sprig. It looks so pretty and delicate irl.
And on this image you see a close up of the embellie I used. I created this one using my EK Success butterfly punch. I punched out a butterfly in shimmer vellum and in raspberry faux suede. Then I bent a piece of wire and assembled them with a glue dot :) You can make them any size and color. they look so pretty.

The other card I wanted to share with you mainly uses You're Dandy. I made the base card a long time ago and wasn't certain where I wanted to go with it. So I set it aside. Does that ever happen to you? I came back to it on Friday and ended up making a mother's day card. I love it.

There you have two super simple designs that can be recreated in no time. Hope you enjoy the rest of the day.

Happy Mother's Day!!

I love what you did with the doily!!!! So elegant and sweet. Genius too!!!! I would have never thought to stamp directly on it .....since I usually see it as a background or accent.

Happy mothers day!!!!

Both are fantastic Jess! I really like what you did with the doily. I still haven't given that trend a try yet. I should hop over to my dollar store...if I ever find the time. I love your dandy card. Great idea with the rays!!

Happy Mother's Day!
