Happy Mom's Day!

Hi everybody!

I am posting less and working on kids' stuff more lately!  Every time I want to sit down and scrap a bit, there's something else more pressing to do.  Such a bummer.  I did manage to send out these Mother's Day cards using stamps from Emma at My Creative Time blog:  Aren't they great sayings?!

Here's what I came up with using the Cricut Cartridge, Elegant Edges. The paper is my all time favorite, My Mind's Eye and the ribbon is a sheer organza that changes from gold to pink hues when you turn the fabric.  I added a little white nylon butterfly I colored with my Copic markers to match the background color and a little pink heart pin along with 4 clear rhinestones I also colored pink.

This is the first of 2 cards.  I used different patterned papers and popped it up with pop dots.

Here's the heart pin tucked into the knot in the bow.

I welded the background white card stock together to make the hinge at the top.  Each layer is popped out with pop dots.

Here's the first caption:  "Behind every great child is a great Mom..."

Here's the second card with a different patterned paper on top, same gold/pink bow and ornaments.

The little butterfly was white but since the papers are cream & pink, I had to add a little color to coordinate.
This is the second saying:  "Moms are the glue that hold a family together..."  I hope you like the cards! - Lisa :~)
