A mother is....



Well if you know me.....I love to create and recreate things that I love.  One being mothers day cards.  Been doing a lot of them lately and have enjoyed it so sooo much. You have full license to make things soft, shabby, and ultra feminine!  I created these two for RRR using several of my favorite ribbons.  I am nothing... if not predictable! 
 I love to try to be creative sometimes with my sentiments.  My first card does that my using a combination of things.  I used letters from my stash, a mini Authetique diecut, and a stamped mini tag to bring my wording together.  For my ribbons I started with the Carolina white crochet lace and than layered it with the Mauve velvet.
 Than on top of that a bit of Claudia white crochet lace.  To finish it off I topped my chipboard heart that stands in for my O with a bit of Baby pink seam binding.  The other card uses the Carolina lace again....love to ink it a bit and dirty it up.  I used a sweet older Maya road stamp set to create my border at the bottom.  I added a bit of grass from a PTI set as well in between my cottages.  To soften the card I wrapped Rose petal seam binding around the card.  My border consists of antique mother of pearl buttons and candi.  The center image are a few goodies from Michaels.  Well there you have it!  Hope your Tuesday goes well and you are inspired to create something!  hugs, cherry
