Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day! Even if you aren't a mom, you can honor any mom in your life. At my workshop last week, we made these Mother's Day cards. But, I had a problem. Three of those in attendance were to get a Mother's Day card from me, so I had to design all-new cards to mail to them! Anyone who was not at the workshop would get the card I designed for everyone else to make.

I don't know why I had so much Flirtatious Specialty designer paper, but I did. I decided to pair it with the retiring Peach Parfait card stock and some of the retiring gross grain ribbon. In the center I used Flower Brads that are also retiring at the end of the month.

Aren't these cut-out doily shapes from the specialty paper just delicate and so girly? I know my sisters-in-law and my friend will appreciate them! And those Edgelits in Peach Parfait and Whisper White just add such elegance.

Here is a close up of the layers on this card. Yummy! I hope that you feel special today if you are a mom! My favorite Mother's Day memory is when my son wrote me a letter of "thanks" for all of the "mom" things I did for him. He was in high school. I still have it hanging up in my closet and love to read it often! It didn't cost anything but a few minutes and I will always treasure it.
