Happy Mothers Day


Happy Tuesday!   How was your weekend.  This is a busy crafting month for me.  Saturday I spend at a LSS with friends at a card class.  After we shopped!  What is more fun than that!  Sunday I played with my new toys and started making some Graduation cards.  For some reason I struggle with these and I have 3 to make this year.

For the next 2 weeks at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations we are thinking of someone else.  Next Sunday is Mothers Day and we want you to make a card for your Mother.  I wanted to do something different this year.  I usually color some flowers then put the sentiment inside.  This year I thought I would put the poem on the outside and use my Heartfelt Creations stamps to make the flowers .  I love the soft look of the card.

The other wonderful challenges this card meets are:
