For Mom...

Hi, and happy {early} Mother's Day to all you Moms, Mums, Mothers, and Mommies out there! I hope it is a wonderful day for you!

Today, I am sharing the card I made for my own lovely mom. She's super and the fact that she lives just 5 minutes away is - as I get older - really nice! :)

Here is a picture of her. It's one of my favorites actually:




Hi Mommy! Love you! :)


Isn't she just adorable? I just love her. Ok, so here is her card:



I got my new MFT stamps/dies that were reased this week called "Well Worn" and I LOVE it. The dies stack on top of each other - so so cool. The sentiment is, of course, the Verve set I've been using all week. It's really THE perfect Mother's Day set.


I used the sketch from this week's Card Patterns sketch, seen here:






AND I thought I would try my hand at the first CAS-ual Friday challenge which was to use text in our creation. I think my use of the SU French Script fits that bill, right? :)




Ok, well that's it from me. I hope that you guys all have a wonderful wonderful day tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!
