Mother's Day Cards

For Mother's day I always try to make the cards we send to our mom's. My rule for sending any cards to the in-laws is that I'll make them, but Mark has to write in them. I don't think it's right for him to have no input into the cards for his family. I asked him if he remembered to send cards prior to getting married. Uh, nope.  I guess that's why boys get married. Or at least one reason. :)

this was the first shape that I've discovered is an "all in one" shape from the silhouette library, which meant I couldn't separate the different parts. Which also meant that if I wanted it to be the front of a card and not just a square I had to do some creative slicing and splicing, but as I get more familiar with the silhouette program I am figuring it out pretty quick. The Love sentiment is a stamp from my stampin' up collection. Technically there isn't anything on here that makes it exclusively a mother's day card, so it could easily be transformed to be used for a wedding, a birthday, a thank you etc. 

What do you think?


  1. LOVE it! I should buy cards off of you... ;)

  2. i think it is gorgeous. I still make cards for my son to mail out mostly thank you's he will be 21 this year.

  3. Totally spectacular treasure I found in your blog. So simple but looks beautiful after keeping a photographs or any nature scenes inside or between those two layers.


The fact that you take the time to leave me comments makes my day! Thanks for taking the time. I read every single one.
