Blogger's Challenge #46



This weeks challenge was to make a Mother's Day card. I have already made a bunch of them but thought that my mom loves to read so I thought I would make her one with bookmarks. This is not my best work and I think the problem is that I started with a floral theme and then after considering the bookmarks I decided to go with a few bible verses so I kind of ended up combining two themes in one and I am not sure about the outcome, but I am sure my mom will love it. That's what moms do -- love us and all we do no matter what! What a blessing that is.

The fold for the card can be found here ---------Joy in a JAR


Stamps: Friendship Blooms (2008 SAB), Shine on You (Stampendous) and On Eagle's Wings (Our Daily Bread Designs),Thanks Tons (SU hostess)

Paper, Real Red, Whisper White, Certainly Celery card stock and Certainly Celery dp

Ink: Real Red, Basic Black, Creamy Carmel, Certainly Celery

Other: Large brads, black brads, SAB rub ons, small and large oval punch, white gel pen, ribbon and zyron to laminate the bookmarks.


Hope you have a great Friday and an even better Mother's Day weekend! Spend time with someone you love.
