I'm not really feelin' the love on my creation, but here it is nonetheless... I started with some Bashful Blue for the cardbase. It looked awfully bright with the other colors, so I toned it down a bit using my color spritzer with Night of Navy and Old Olive markers. Next I stamped the tree image using Close to Cocoa, So Saffron and Old Olive markers, using the thumping technique. The sentiment is stamped with Not Quite Navy ink and the Whisper White cardstock was layered on some Le Jardin designer series paper and then onto Not Quite Navy cardstock. I attached some Old Olive poly-twill ribbon for another little splash of color. I attached everything with stampin' dimensionals and done! Hope you like it!! :)

So, so simple but so, so cute! I started with 1-1/2" squares of designer series paper and mounted them onto a 3-1/2" square of cardstock. I stamped the "thank you" sentiment from the new Fresh Cuts stamp set (will be featured in the Fall-Winter Idea Book & Catalog!) on cardstock and punched them out using the large oval punch. The square and sentiment were then mounted using stampin' dimensionals. Easy, peasy!

And I played around with the Bugs & Kisses stamp set and came up with this dimensional snail. He looked a little on the sad side, so I thought the "I'm there for you" sentiment fit perfectly. I wanted to leaves to be a bit softer, so I stamped off using the Old Olive inkpad. Then a little bit of layering and paper tearing and done!

A very Happy Mother's Day to all of you with the awesome responsiblity of being a mom! I hope that your family showers you with love every day, but most especially today. Enjoy all the attention and be sure to do something for yourself.
I'm sharing a card I made about a month ago. Yes, I was actually being proactive and making a card for my mom well in advance. But if any of you have seen my craft room, you'll know that it's very easy for me to lose things. So guess what? Yep, despite my best intentions, I lost it. Big surprise there! :) I ended up mailing a different card to my mom but just found the first one this morning!
