Mother's Day Cards

Hi Everyone! Happy Wednesday! How's your week going so far? I got the green light from my physical therapist to get back to the gym this week. YEAH!!! The boot is off and I am swimming again. And it's been great. My ankle is not 100% yet but it's getting there. Swimming is some much needed exercise therapy. Not being able to do anything for 7 weeks was tough stuff.

Today I want to share a couple of cards I made for Mother's Day. I used the Vicki B 6x6 paper pad by Bo Bunny. I really like the 6x6 pads for cards.. This first card is 5x5 square, I really love that size for cards.


Yes, i'm still addicted to baker's twine. Expect to see it on every project for the next 8 years. And the stamp is from PSA Essentials.


This next one is not necessarily Mother's Day, but could be for a girlfriend or aunt or neighbor.

Yeah for doily's and baker's twine!!!!!!!!

Hope you are having a great week. It's heating up here...almost 90 degrees today! Bring on the summer!!

Thanks for stopping by today...

Love the bakers twine. I bought my first spool before you could get it in small sample portions....so now I have 50 yards to use. But that won't stop me from getting even more colors. Love these cards - can you send on my way 'cause I'm wimping out and sending store bought cards this year (shudder). Beautiful work.
