Mother's Day Cards to share...

Well, good evening all... Yep, now that I'm back at work, this is the time I get to craft. It is wonderful and peaceful... Kendall is studying for her Conveyancing exam next Wednesday... please hold thumbs for her... so I quickly put 2 Mother's Day cards together, as I need to take them to work tomorrow for 2 clients...

This is such good practice for me... I couldn't do anything else at this short notice but make 2 C&S cards again... hope you like them as much as I enjoyed making them.  Thanks to my regular blogfriends that visit, your comments are so encouraging...

The DP is so lovely, I have left this as the main focus.  Don't you just love that lace... remember a while back I mentioned that I had some pink lace, well here it is.  As you can see very clean and simple lines.  The sentiment is the main focus too.

I've also kept the inside decoration to the minimum, just enough to compliment the outside.  There are my butterflies again, they make such a lovely focal point.

I found this scalloped cardstock whilst rummaging through my stash and decided to use if for my second card.  Wish I'd bought some more, but they only had this colour. Will have to check with Maryke from Scrap's Delight, as this is where I purchased it from.  Once again, the sentiment is the focal point and I got an opportunity to make the double bow again.  How did yours go Lynn?

A side view pic to give you a peek of the inside. Also kept this simple and added to circles to compliment the patterned paper on the outside and added a butterfly where the 2 circles join.

Thanks so much for popping by and do leave a comment if you have the time, as I really appreciate them.  A warm welcome to my new followers, always nice seeing a new face amongst my Creative Friends on top.

I've still got to make my GDT card for Totally Gorjuss, so let me get back to the craft table... nighty night all !  hugs Sharon x

Well DARN!!!! I was sitting here thinking about a very quick Mothers Day card I could do (I forgot and thought it was NEXT weekend!!!) and up pops your beautiful card! I'd LOVE to case this but just don't have a sentiment except for a little bitty one....so still don't know what I'll do. Maybe I could put some other image there and just add the little sentiment. Um... But I dearly LOVE yours and really want to CASE this! Just gorgeous.
Oh, and the double bow - still hasn't happened yet....more practice!!!
Hope you have a great weekend.
Lynn

Hi Sharon. Oh my goodness, burning the midnight oil crafting. Well I must say, these are both very beautiful and so perfect for Mothers Day. Gorgeous papers and designs. Love that pink lace, stunning. Of course those cute wee butterflies are the most perfect embellishments. Happy crafting.
With love, Sandra xxx
