Blogger's Challenge - Mother's Day

Geez, it took me all day to get this post up, blogger was being difficult.  Looks like it has decided to behave at least for now.  This week we are focusing on Mothers!  Appropriately so!  I took one of my favorite word stamps from the All Holidays set and added it to another sentiment stamp in the same set to come up with the appropriate sentiment for my mom.    It is actually a simple card but I like it.  I combined it with the Latenightstamper's Challenge 69 to use pearls and swirls.



I love this Bella Blue paper.  So easy to get beautiful cards with it. 

Stamps:  All Holidays, Messages for Mom (last mini)
Paper: Saraha Sand, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, Bella Blue DP
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Other: embossing folder, sizzix sizzlets, markers, pearl from the pretties kit.

Hope you have a blessed weekend!
Mary Jo
