Let's Hear It For Mothers!

We are days away from that very special day where we celebrate mom and all she has done for us. I think the most special thing we as crafters can do for our mothers is create a lovely card for her and  today I am going to share with you a few I made not just for my mother but for some very special people .....I like to take this day and send cards to those people who may not have children but have shaped my life for the good. So I put this out there to all of you, send a card to someone who has influnced your aunt...a teacher....grandmother....or best friend let them know they touched your life.
So below are my cards for you please enjoy them!

For this card I used Graphics 45 papers as my base and this stunning image from Gecko Galz "Springtime" collection and a bit of wide lace that I cut down the middle and folded back.

I used Graphics 45 papers as my base then added an image from Gecko Galz "Artful Visions" and a Stamping Up stamp with Archival Ink from Ranger. Then I added a bit of seam binding ribbon in peacock and made the pearl border using a Viva pearl pen in cream.

For this card I started with Bo Bunny paper for my base and inked a paper doily by Wilton using Distress ink in Vintage photo. Next I took the picture from Gecko Galz . I added a flower by Petaloo and then did a pearl border using a copper pearl pen by Viva.

This Card I wanted to tap into the parisian flair so I started with some great pink and black paper I found at Joanns and using a Martha Stewart corner punch created a cool background piece. Next I used an image from Gecko Galz FREE collage sheet for April and then added some pale pink silk ribbon and a vintage velvet flower I found at a thrift store.

Now this card was done for a customer of mine and I used Graphics 45 papers and an image I found on line. Using the corner punch by Martha Stewart I made my own photo corners and a touch of bling with amber gems. I tied it all together with rust colored ribbon I got at Hobby Lobby.

So I want to wish everyone a happy mothers day!
Happy Scrapping
