Mom and Dad----Blogger and LNS challenges--Same but different.

Yippee it is Friday! I so love Fridays. And of course that means it is also Blogger's Challenge day too. This we were to make a Mother's Day card. So I decided to make both a Mother's Day and a Father's Day card, using the same basic idea which fits the Latenightstamper's Challenge of using circles. So I accomplished a bunch of stuff with these two cards.

The Mother's Day card is using Storage Units Ink and More stamps.

Here is what it looks like from the inside.

And the Father's Day is using 100% current Stampin Up! items.

And what this one looks like from inside.


I am running pretty late again today so I will come back later and add the details. If you want me to let you know when I have updated, leave me a comment with your e-mail in the comments and I will, for now I a late and got to run! Happy Friday!
