Mom

Hi

(If you are looking for the Wilson Design Release post from last night click here.)

Wow, Mother's Day is just a few short days away, and oddly enough, I have my Father's Day cards completed and I am just getting around to my Mother's Day Cards. My Mom actually reads my blog, so she has been instructed to NOT READ THIS POST until after Sunday! I have also had to be clever with my craftiness since I am staying with her so she doesn't see what I am working on. J
To kick off my inspiration, I used Jay Gee's Nook Photo challenge! So many possibilities! 
Love the retro vibe and the Let's Rock set just released by Wilson Designs was perfect. 
Creating a kraft cardstock to form my base which is layered with a mix of designer papers. Then onto trimmings of crochet lace, pink twine, and a crinkle seam binding bow finishing off with a pearly button to complete this retro Mom's Day Card!

I will also enter this card at My Craft Spot: We Love You Mom which is to make a card or project for your Mom that's easy peasy and The Kraft Journal: Mother's Day. That's a check! 

Thank you so much for all your sweet comments over the last few days! I read each of them and they mean so much to me! As all crafters know...followers and your comments keep us going and I appreciate mine so much! I just wanted to take a moment to say that!

If you are a Mom, I hope you get to the Royal Treatment this weekend, if you are not, then may you be spending it with someone who has been very special in your life.J
