A mother is...



Well if you know me.....I love to create and recreate things that I love.  One being mothers day cards.  Been doing a lot of them lately and have enjoyed it so sooo much. You have full license to make things soft, shabby, and ultra feminine!  I created these two for RRR (which I am EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE I made the team for another term)  using several of my favorite ribbons.  I am nothing... if not predictable! 
 I love to try to be creative sometimes with my sentiments.  My first card does that my using a combination of things.  I used letters from my stash, a mini Authetique diecut, and a stamped mini tag to bring my wording together.  For my ribbons I started with the Carolina white crochet lace and than layered it with the Mauve velvet.
 Than on top of that a bit of Claudia white crochet lace.  To finish it off I topped my chipboard heart that stands in for my O with a bit of Baby pink seam binding.  The other card uses the Carolina lace again....love to ink it a bit and dirty it up.  I used a sweet older Maya road stamp set to create my border at the bottom.  I added a bit of grass from a PTI set as well in between my cottages.  To soften the card I wrapped Rose petal seam binding around the card.  My border consists of antique mother of pearl buttons and candi.  The center image are a few goodies from Michaels.  Well there you have it!  Hope your Tuesday goes well and you are inspired to create something!  hugs,

Your Mother's Day cards are so sweet and beautiful, Cherry! First thing that caught my eye were those adorable row houses and vintage buttons. And then I saw the fabulous sentiment work. Wow! And of course all the trims and bows, too. You make the most beautiful things!

Beautiful! And that lovely little Lacey tidbit at the top really caught my eye, but it fits there so perfectly. You have a true gift for compiling elements into a cohesive design. It's amazing!
