My Mother's Day cards

I figure my mom will see her cards today or tomorrow, so I may as well post the pics finally!!

 This card was made for my dad to give to my mom.
I used Flower Girl Mae from Some Odd Girl Stamps.

This is from me to my mom.
I used The Greeting Farm's Miss Anya Garland.

I love the SOG image, it's so feminine.  I am going to use it for their current sketch challenge that you can see here.  I used paper from Basic Grey's Olivia pad.  The old fashioned pink embellishment on top of the lace and ribbon is from a new line of brads at Hobby Lobby. (I really love all the cool brads I got!) 

The paper on the Miss Anya card is from My Mind's Eye Madison Avenue pad.  I didn't put a whole bunch of little embellishments on it, because I wanted it to survive the mail without looking too mangled!  I was pretty happy with how it looks with just the flower, twine and button. 

I hope you all have a super-fab Mother's day!  It might be pretty rainy here in Colorado all weekend, but we'll make do.

  6. Hi Rachel, Happy Mother's Day my friend. I think both of your cards for your Mom are just beautiful! I am sure that she is going to enjoy both the one from you and the one your Dad had you make as well. I love the coloring and the papers on them both. My Mom lives in the same smallish town as we do, but with the kids being sick and my Dad has a heart condition since his attach in 2000 I don't like to expose them to anything if I can help it at all. I am hoping to get her card in the mail tomorrow, so she can see it in person. She already told me that she loved it, but you know how it looks so different in person than in a picture. lol... Have a great start to your week. Hugs, Lisa G
