A Little Humor for Mother's Day

There is a fairly new challenge on SCS that is called Queen For The Day. This week, the chosen stamper is Carol_PA925. She has an interesting gallery, and the card I chose to CASE is this one of the butterfly card in PINK. I liked the simple layout.

So, in keeping with my card-a-day policy for Mother's Day, I made the card below, using some pretty blues, and a butterfly I got at the $ Tree. You can see the changes I made in Carol's card. No need for me to tell you what you can look at yourself.

I did take a close-up of the sentiment. It shouldn't be wasted, because it's perfect for a person my age to give to her Mom. I can't tell you the number of times my Mom "washed" something smudgy off my face with her 'wetted" handkerchief. Mom's today don't carry hankies anymore. What do they use??? Anyhow, she will get a real laugh out of this card. I hope you do too.

Floral for Mom

Card #3 for the week I send Mom Mother's Day cards. The F4A10 challenge today was to make a floral card, and this one was super easy.
I used four different punches, one sentiment, a ribbon and some pearls. Not even dimensionals!

Mom and I just got our SU order which had the Trio Punch in it for both of us. I have long admired CarrollAnn's (Mrs. Boz at SCS) little embossed flowers, and this is how she did them.....a stylus and the punch. I think they are so cute!

I'm off to the mailbox with the first card I made for Mom. Have a great day, and I hope you are having fun making Mother's Day cards too.
