Flowers, Lace, and a little Green Monster

Hello, Monday Friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and a wonderful Mother's Day if you happen to be here in the US! We had a SUPER fun day hanging out with my parents and my sister! Mom decided she wanted North End pizza for Mother's Day, so we all met in Boston and did just that! The pizza was AMAZING, as one would expect in the North End. We then headed over to Modern Pastry, waited in the super long line and then left with some treats that were nothing less than sinfully delicious! As part of my gift to Mom, I decided it would be fun to all go to Build-a-Bear to make Wally the Green Monster stuffies (Red Sox team mascot)! It was SO.MUCH.FUN!!!!


I also made a pretty card for Mom, of course! I pulled out the beautiful May Flowers kit from Simon Says Stamp to create this card.

Happy Mother's Day

I love the softness of the taffy cardstock as the background and those GCD papers look so perfect with the Best Mom Ever stamp set! LOVE!

Happy Mother's Day (detail)

Lots of layers to add depth and dimension to this one. I love doing that! It just adds so much! And that lace is just gorgeous and makes me happy! YAY!

I hope you have a super fantabulous day!

Have a Happy!

My parents came up from New York for Mother's Day, and we were also in the North End! Although we went to Mike's...the line at Modern was too long, lol.

Beautiful card, Jingle! Love the lace trim and the flowers are stunning. Even more special is the time spent with your mom. So glad you had a great time together!

So pretty! I love the softness of this!

Karen M said...

LOVE these flowers, they are amazing! Really clever idea!

Wida said...

I think this card is the sweetest! the pearls are what makes it just over the top cute. and you look like a great combo of both parents, but favor your mom most. Is that what people say too?
