Mother's Day

For Mother's Day I usually get a phone call and/or a text...not the personal touch I was brought up with, but it works with the generation after us. And, I know I'm loved because Mother's Day isn't the only time I hear from our kids, so it's all good.

But, I still have a mother (in-law) and she being from the generation before us, really enjoys cards and letters. As a matter of fact, she totally rejects the digital world! This card will be for her!

In the effort to continue using from my stash, the word  Happy and the flower were already to go. The embossing is the Swiss Dot folder by Cuttlebug and I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the scallop edging. The purple card stock is some I made last summer using purple dye. I love the way the paper turned out.

This is for the 9th Challenge at Craft Rocket Challenges and it will run for 2 weeks. Come and join us!

It must be February already. I'm afraid we blinked...too slowly! :) January is gone and December just a distant memory. And so starts a new Challenge from Craft Rocket Challenges!

It is Challenge #8 and for Valentine/Love. Here is my Design Team card listed on the blog. Come and join us!

I am working on using scraps, bits and pieces this year and this was the result. The card stock is my home made paper with a touch of red dye in the pulp to get the pink color. The embossing is from a Darice folder.

50 Years

How do 50 years pass by us so quickly? We have close friends that are celebrating their 50 year wedding anniversary this year. I am making cards early, for a change, and this will be saved for them.


I made it using saved scraps and shapes. The sentiment was created using VersaMark stamp pad and Recollections Gold embossing powder. The 50 was stamped with Sizzlits Nouveau.

The card stock is a darker sheet of natural color hand made paper.

This is my Design Team card for the February Unicorn Challenges blog. The theme is Lot's of Love - Valentines/Anniversary creations. Join us for the fun!
