Happy Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day to all the mothers out there.  Mothers come in many different forms and one doesn't necessary have to have children to be a mother.  I consider mothers to have a caring and love for someone or something.

The card today is a Mothers Day card for my daughter.  We just came back from celebrating with the family, my mother, my daughter and my daughter in law, their spouses and children.  It started off to be a picnic, however, we did end up inside as the rain drops started.  It didn't changed the atmosphere. We had lunch and my son made the dessert....."Dirt" without the worms.  YEH, Very Good!




Recipe
Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Paper: Brocade Blue, Ballet Blue, Night of Navy, DSP

Ink: Ballet Blue, White Craft Ink

Technique:

1. The card base is Brocade Blud and the dimensions are 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.
2. The Night of Navy was run through the Big Shot using the Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder and the leaves were cut using the Sweetest Stem Embosslit
3. The rose from the Fifth Avenue Floral set was stamped using the White Craft ink and embossed with White EP and coloured in to give dimension to the flower and cut out

This card was cased from CKStamps over at http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1684537?&cat=16116 using my own colours, etc.

You will also notice that the new blog group has a new name TEN TO TANGO and the links to the blogs are on the right hand side of my blog.  Give them a visit to see what they are up too.
