Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all of you who are Moms!  I look forward to hearing from our sons today, and talking to my own Mom, who is 95 year old this year.  It's been a difficult year with the pandemic, and we've been staying away from her for her safety, relying on my sister, who lives closer than we do.

Since we can't be with my Mom this year, she's getting multiple cards.  Here's one of them.

supplies: white and black cardstock, (retired) My Favorite Things Flashy Florals stamps and Wonky Stitched Rectangle die,  Altenew mini ink pads, Pink Fresh Studio Adore Alpha dies, sentiment from Hero Arts (retired) January 2020 card kit, Hero Arts gems for large flower centers

I've seen some similar cards on Instagram, (one made by my Simon teamie, Kim),  and loved the big colorful flowers - I know Mom will, too.  

Here's another that I sent to my sister this year.  This sweet heart wreath full of flowers and butterflies is such a pleasing design!

supplies: white and black cardstock, Stampendous Laurel Burch Butterfly Heart cling, Nuvo Creative markers, sentiment from Simon (retired) Mom & Dad Icons set

I stamped the butterfly separately, cut it out and popped it above the heart with the wings pulled upward.

Will you be lucky enough to be with your Mom this year?
