Happy Mother's Day

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to make my Mom a special Mother's Day card this year.
I make so many cards and they usually end up sitting in a box, an then when there actually is a special occasion- for a special person- I find myself out of time, too tired, or just forgetful.
I was not going to let another Mother's Day go by without making something for my Mom!
Silhouette Lori Whitlock files and Echo Park paper are made for each other!

I couldn't leave the girlies out, so I made them cards to send to their Grandmas for Mother's Day too.
Cricut Imagine: Kate's Kitchen and Pink By Design: Grandparents

Silhouette Cameo and Pink By Design: Rain or Shine
I did not go so far as to make a Mother's Day card for myself.  
My girls can do that!  

A few challenges: 


  1. Julie, Your Mom's card is just beautiful. Love the colors and how you embellished it. Now, for Grandma's cards, you couldn't have gotten any better for them. Both cards are perfect and they are SURE to love them. The Silhouette and PBD Stamps are looking the Bee &
    B-Fly...sooo cute! Tell the other 2/3rds of 3GJ Hello.

    Have a great Mother's Day weekend!

  2. Julie, these are awesome!!! Love them all! OMG, I am EXACTLY the same way!!! I have yet to make my mother's and MIL's cards and it's like three days away. :( Been having fibro flares and migraines (as usual) and haven't gotten a single card done for this holiday. Seems there is never enough time! I really like the one with the sloping font that says "Grandma". That's an awesome idea! I love the one you used for our challenge at FCCB too though. I'm planning on using flowers on my cards as well, but I'm totally digging the way you did the words on this one! Awesome idea! Thanks for joining us this week!
