Here is another Mother's Day Card!

I am having a lot of fun making Mother's Day cards.The dog is from the Cricut Cartridge Paisley. The green shape behind the dog is from a spellbinders nestabilities. I think the dog is just too cute! I thought the star paper was the perfect background. I added some tennis balls as a fun accent. I hope you enjoy! I love reading your comments!

Mother's Day Card

I have been having so much fun making different cards. My cousin was here this weekend and we ended up shopping for 4 hours and then created until 3:30 in the morning. I taught her how to make a spinner card and decided to share the one I made with you!

While we were shopping I was going through all sorts of mat stacks (my new faves) at Joann's. I found the All Dressed Up DCWV mat stack and fell in love. This paper is so pretty! It was already dressed up so I didn't have to do much. I chalked the edges and added three light green gems in the top left corner.

Here is my spinner card!

Happy Mother's Day and Mom are both from Pink By Design's Our Mothers set! I hope you enjoyed the card! I love comments!

I recently learned how to make an easel card and wanted to make one for her! The girl is Fleur Anya from The Greeting Farm colored with Copic markers.
This sentiment was perfect for the inside and can be found from Pink By Design.

Happy Birthday Sarah!

Today is my friend Sarah's Birthday! She lives in another state so I can't say Happy Birthday in person so I decided to make this for her! I hope it arrives to her home today! I know she likes the colors purple and black~

I love how this banner turned out even though its a lot bigger than I planned. I like the scallop circles on the pennants. Cindy Loo font makes it fun too! Its hard to see but there is a purple gem in the middle of each of the letters! I hope you like it Sarah!

Pin It!
