Another Mother's Day Card

Hey Everyone! I really have all intentions on posting something everyday, but life doesn't let me! So I just have to be thankful that I get something posted. I found a cute card today while checking blogs, it was from Ashley Newell from A New Design. She makes such amazing cards, go check her out! I needed to make another card for Mother's Day. I made this one for a sweet lady from church, she is 80 years old. She could never have children of her own, but we all feel like we are her children. We call her "Our Momma Of The Church", so she so deserved this Mother's Day card! We all Love her sooo much!! I made these cute little flowers from some scraps from the Burp Cloths I made before. I used lots of scrap paper and ribbon and I had to use some of my new buttons. I also pieced together the sentiment from my Papertrey Ink mixed messages stamp set. I really like how it turned out and I hope she does too!

Papertrey Ink- mixed messages stamp, flowers made from fabric scraps, paper and ribbon from scraps, buttons from Bag-O-Buttons, embroidery floss, distressing

Have a Blessed Day!

Winter, that brought tears to my eyes. I can tell you that card is going to mean so much to her. It's hard on Mother's Day when you don't have children of your own... I thought this card looked familiar. You did a beautiful rendition (is that a word? Ha!) of it! I love the pinks!
