Happy (belated) Mother's Day

I know I'm a day late for posting this but I'm going to post it anyway because I really liked how this turned out. I made identical cards for my mom and for my MIL. They live on opposite sides of the state. Literally. One lives on the Missouri River and the other lives on the Mississippi River. So, there's no chance they're going to find out that I made the same card for both of them. Unless they read this post. LOL


I had a fantastic Mother's Day. We went to the nursery after church and picked up tomatoes and peppers for the garden. Then a quick trip to Theisen's (the local farm store) to look for sturdy tomato cages. No luck. Found just the regular flimsy ones. There were some more expensive ones at the nursery but $18/cage is pretty expensive to pay for cages, especially when you have to buy a dozen! Ouch!

(All supplies from PTI unless noted otherwise)
Stamps: Butterfly Dreams, Fancy Flourishes, Mixed Messages, Text Style
Ink: Spring Moss, Van Dyke Brown (Nick Bantok), Versamark (for the butterflies on the background)
Paper: Kraft, Ocean Tides, Vintage Cream, Pretty Pastels, ledger paper (Making Memories)
Other: prima glitter, butterfly die, Top Note die (SU!), Sweet Blush twill ribbon, scalloped circle punch

Hope all you moms out there had a wonderful Mother's Day full of life's blessings.

Lovely card Jennifer! The flourishes are so elegant. I love the little bit of blue for a pop of a different color.
