Happy Mother's Day!

Hello, and Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms out there! Hope you're having a swell day with those you love. :-)

I'm enjoying mine, and have spent many hours in my craft studio. Aaah!  We went to church in the morning, and because my youngest is in the Confirmation class this year, it was her class's responsibility to host the annual Mother's Day Pancake Breakfast. My daughter mixed the pancake batter, and my husband was cooking them. Other kids cut up fresh fruit, and set tables, and serve our 'patrons'. My heart swells with pride for my own family, knowing that they helped many families have a delicious morning. :-)

And now, a few cards to share. The one above showcases a large, beautiful K & Co. lilac bouquet diecut. I added a sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Tiny Tags, a scattering of sequins, a twine bow, and even droplets of 'water' (Glossy Accents glue).

I love the soft shades of blue on the next card. Again, I used some K & Co. beauties (the flowers). I tucked some Sizzix diecut leaves behind the larger cluster. The sentiment is from Verve, and wow, what a powerful proverb for a special mother! 

This last card is obviously not a Mother's Day card, but it is one of the creations that recently left my craft desk to go to the shop. The dogwood branch and sentiment are both from Hero Arts. I used soft tones of warm gray for the card base, and the ink.

As always, please feel free to drop me a line if you have a question about any of the products I've used. I just don't have as much time as I used to, to include supply lists for my cards. Thanks for understanding!

Have a beautiful, blessed day!
