More Momma Love

Hey there friends! How are you doing this beautiful Saturday evening? We have been blessed with gorgeous weather today! We went to Sidney's first softball game this evening and had so much fun sitting talking to parents and cheering on the girls! Sid just started playing softball this past school year and loved it. One of her friends is playing for a city rec team in the area and asked her to join so she thought sure sounds fun! I can't get over how competitive things are right down to the uniforms and cleats! Fun stuff! I will post some pics soon but now I want to move on to a few mother's day cards I created a few weeks back.

I cased this design from someone at Splitcoaststampers, please forgive me for not remembering to write down their name to give them kudos! I loved the turquoise and black together. This card was so simple to make but turnedout so pretty. I used that totally F-A-B new stamp set from Verve Visual called Great Friend and stamped the flowers in white SU craft ink. The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby (one of those little spools for $1) and the butterfly was a Martha Stewart punch, naturally I had to bling it up with some clear gem stones. The Happy Mother's Day sentiment is also from Verve Visual.

You know what I love about making cards? There is instant gratification because unlike a scrapbook page, which takes so much time (you know finding the right paper for your layout and what size photos you want to use) you can snap out a card pretty quick and the best part is sometimes you can use scraps from other projects! This card was made using the same stamp set from Verve and Spellbinder circle and scalloped circle dies.

What mom isn't super...right? So this pretty little Bella was perfect for Mother's Day. I colored her using Copic markers and added a little highlight around the edge with a white gel pen.

Well thanks for peekin' in! So glad you stopped by! Take care of you!

Beautiful cards; love the white flowers on the blue; so delicate and the butterfly is the "perfect" touch.

Love the colors of the 2nd card too; those paper pieced flowers are flabarooni! Love the big 'ole button in the middle!!
