Happy Mother's Day!

I want to wish all you mothers out there a very happy Mother's Day! I loved every minute of raising my kids and now that they're grown, I miss it! All you mother's of little children, treasure this time with your children -- they grow much too fast!
I made this card for a very special grandmother and greatgrandmother! (not mine) She's a remarkable woman with more stamina than women half her age, and a sunny disposition and ready smile!
This is my very first attempt at using flower soft, and I'm happy with how it turned out. I tried to get a "Victorian" look for this card, so I used the flowered background, which I scalloped, added a layer of pink textured paper, which I also scalloped, added the white lace ribbon for more "Victorian" charm, and embellished it with three pink rhinesones for a little "bling." I hope she likes it!

God Bless Mothers!

I made this card for my Godmother. She's a very special aunt to me. When I was little, she lived on the next street and we were together all the time. She's my mother's sister and they were very close. She has two sons of her own, but not a daughter. Now she has 2 beautiful granddaughters!

I recently had the opportunity to see her, which I hadn't in a long time since she lives several hours away. She's still the happy, smiling lady I remember. Happy Mother's day Aunt Agnes! Hope you like the card!

Birthday Girl

I actually made this birthday card for a gal at work, but then changed my mind and gave her a different one, but I really like this one. Anya has freckles and a "flower soft" garland in her hair. She was colored with copics. I hope you like her.
