Another Mother's Day Card

Hi Everyone,
I hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday....Today's card is another Mother's Day Card that I made for my mom. I couldn't post it earlier since she's a follower of my blog and I didn't want her to see it until I gave it to her on Sunday.

Mom (Carol) loves to craft too. She's amazingly wicked with a crochet hook, but now I have her totally hooked (get it hooked, crochet hook...I know that was bad) on paper crafting. I used to drag her kicking and screaming to the CK (Creative Keepsake) Convention in Valley Forge...She can't wait to go this year...

So here it is...I've been in a real stamping mood lately and playing with my Paper Trey Ink Stamps and dies....

  3. Super nice card. You are so lucky. I wish my mom could even appreciate the work I do. As a child she played with the paper dolls and dressed them up with the paper clothes she cut. I am into the paper piecing and she has no interest in it. Have fun with your mom and enjoy her as much as you can.

  4. Adorable! Tell your mom there is time for both crafts. I crochet too! One craft fis for the craft room and the other if for when you are sitting around. :)
