Happy Mother's Day!

I had no idea that Sunday is Mother's Day... really. Not a clue. (I've been a little busy lately). Then my mom mentioned she was going over to my brother's on Sunday. "For what?" I asked. "Mother's Day" was her reply. *GASP*!! But alas, when you're fully stocked with great Stampin' Up! products, creating beautiful cards in a flash is a piece of cake! Here are the three cards I whipped up last night so I could get them in the mail today:

This is one of my favorite techniques because you get to really have fun with some colors. Since I have three moms to send cards to, I thought this was a great time to use it.

I dug into my In Colors for this trio... This first one uses Pacific Point and Kiwi Kiss.

This second one uses Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette.

And this last one uses Tangerine Tango and Apricot Appeal.

All of these cards use the Garden Greetings stamp set, which is one of my new favorites, along with the appropriate color of Striped Grosgrain ribbon. Add a sentiment, stick a stamp on it, and you're covered for another important holiday!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you! ...sure wish I could see my mom on Mother's Day. *sigh*

PS: I just noticed I forgot to soften the edges of these photos like I usually do! Oh well... I don't have time to go back and redo them. Also, as you have noticed, I am taking the pictures outside again. Haven't quite found my Ott lamp yet!! The glories of moving...

Love your cards (of course) but especially love that you can't find your Ott light yet. More pictures with your new landscaping in the background would be great.....give us a small snippet of your new life!
