Happy Mother's Day! (Okay...I'm a little late, but that's okay, I was late when I was born, too, so it works.)

What? I WAS!!! Two full weeks, actually. I was supposed to be a January baby, but, instead, I share my birthday with Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin. It works for me. I like February much better than January, anyway! HA!

Well, I can't show you the gift I made for my Mom yet because, umm....I didn't make it yet. I had some supply issues (as in ... I didn't have them) so she will be getting her gift a bit later, but I am super excited about it, so I PROMISE to show you as soon as I finish it! SO CUTE!!!

I DID, however, manage to get her card made!

Happy Mother's Day Card


What better day to play with fabric flowers than MOTHER'S DAY???!!! I created this one with two different fabrics. A pretty white, grey, and purple patterned fabric strip is used for the center, and a lovely lavender is used for the rest. I love it!

I used my Cricut (Calligraphy Collection Cartridge) to cut the sentiment and added some Stickles for a bit of sparkle! The cut got a bit lost on the text background paper, so I inked the paper a bit to darken it and I love how it made the sentiment really pop!

And the best part? She liked it!!! It is so wonderful to have some people in my life who really appreciate the handmade cards that I create for them!

  3. That card is so cute. I would never have thought to ink the background on the card. Good idea.
    I agree it is nice when the gift recipient loves the handmade gift. I have been lucky enough that no one hasn't liked one yet, or they are excellent actors LOL

  6. That's a gorgeous card and I love the dimensionality of it. Is that a real word? I like how the letters pop against the inked background. You stopped by my Elmer's glue crackle post and asked if I'd used modge podge for a top coat. Nope. But if you try it and it gives you a crackled top coat that would be awesome. Let me know, would you? Thanks so much.

  12. Beautiful card! I love it and I bet your mom did too...

    I couldn't post her gift because she would have seen it ahead of time, but I totally know what you mean by being late. I couldn't post her gift because it's not quite finished, HA!
