Mother's Day 2017

Hi there!  Happy Mother's Day to those celebrating today.  I'm a bit late in posting as I was enjoying the beautiful day we had today and spending time with my own dear mother and son.  I do have a couple of cards to share that I made for today.

First is a card I gave to my wonderful Mom.  The papers and flowers are from Recollections.  I added a doily and pearls from my stash.  The stamped word "Mother" is from Papertrey Ink.

This card as well as the second one came together so quickly using the matching papers, journaling cards/sentiments, and flowers.

For my second card, I again used Recollections papers as well as a sentiment card, self-adhesive glitter tape and roses.  Both cards have gold foiled papers.  The pretty double layer butterflies were made with dies by Spellbinders.

This card was made for one of my aunts who is also my godmother.

Well, that's it for me today.  I took a day off from work tomorrow and am looking forward to some crafting time.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I appreciate your kind comments.  Have a wonderful week ahead!
