Mother's Day Card

My Clinique Counter Manager came to me this morning and asked if it would be at all possible for me to make a Mother's Day Card to send to her mom. Well, me being me, and not knowing how to say "no, sorry", I said yes. So this evening I put this card together using all Stampin Up supplies, except the Offray ribbon. I used my markers to color the stamps and actually used my "test run" on the cards. Usually I make two or three attempts before I'm at all pleased. The stamp sets are All Year Cheer II and Thoughts and Prayers. Thank you for your continued support and all your comments. Have a great day!

This is beautiful and perfect for a Mother's Day card. I often find the word 'yes' coming out of my mouth when I would rather say no. I'm sure the Clinique lady's mother will be stunned when she receives this card.

Hey Lesly,

You just left a comment on my blog regarding my all day scrap and stamp with technique sessions. I just started with Stampin' Up in February. I haven't done any outside workshops yet, but I've been doing at least 3 a month right at my house. I do a card night, a scrap night, and I try to do a full day workshop on a Saturday too. It's worked out great. If you ever want to talk about doing one yourself, e-mail me at ktlips@sbcglobal.net.

BTW, your cards are beautiful....you should be demonstrating them!

This is such a nice card. It's simple but elegant.

And finding unmounted new stamps after a move? At least you have an excuse! I still have a few and it's just because I'm lazy. lol

Great cards and blog. Keep up the fun!

This card is stunning... You did an absolutely beautiful job. I hope you didn't just give it away. I sell my cards from time to time, and it does help offset expenses for all of the 'stuff' that I 'have to have'!!
