Mom Happy Birthday To You

Good Morning Everyone...I hope you had a great weekend! My mom's birthday is next month and here is the card I made for her using The Cutting Cafe All About Mom/Mum Huge Printable Stamp set. This awesome set features 41 images.....with a variety of different sentiments just pertaining to mom/mum for Mother's Day, Birthday, World's Greatest and many more. The best part is, I can actually say I did a card start to finish in the same sitting. Those of you that know me, you known I almost never do the inside of a card until I am ready to send it. I even did the back with The Custom Handmade Just For You Circle Label that Regina made for me awhile back. It has my blog address on it so my mom won't have to keep asking me for it---
The inside---
And the back---
Here is the recipe---
Card Size: A2
Stamp/Image: Cutting Cafe-All About Mom/Mum, Cutting Cafe-Handmade Just For You
Nestibilities: Petite Oval/Scallop, Circle/Scallop
Punch: Martha Stewart Garden Trellis, Nellie Snellen Floral Medium/Large Flower Set, EK Mountain Fern, Martha Stewart Branch
Accessories: Ribbon, Flat Back Pearls, Heart Button, Heart Charm, Craft Yarn, Foam Pop Dots Cardstock: Colorbok Pearlesent
Patterned Paper: Colorbok
Other Cardstock: Bazzill (for the leaves)
That's it for now, starting today I will only be posting once or twice a week. Blogging is a lot of fun but can also be a lot of work. I am amazed at how much traffic comes through my blog but yet so few of you take the time to say hello. I've said it before and I'll say it again, YOUR comments are MY source of inspiration! If I have inspired you, please take a moment to do likewise. I'll close by saying...I'll see you when I see you...enjoy your day!

Teresa said...

That is so pretty. I love it. I am excited to try a card like this now because I just bought this punch this weekend!

Celeste said...

Absolutely beautiful card... I know she will love it.

Beth said...

Oh my word, this is such a stunning card, the flowers are beautiful! I'm sure your mom will love it. I am sad to know that you will be posting only once or twice a week, I have made you part of my morning and you are such an inspiration to me, but I do understand the work involved with having a blog. I guess that's why I don't have one!

Hi Kelly. You have one lucky Mom! This is a gorgeous card. I haven't seen the trellis punch yet. I thought you might have made the cut on the Cricut. Love the pearls on the petals and the charm. What a beautiful saying. The colors are perfect. I like the way the saying takes up the entire inside. I just never like all the open spaces on the inside of cards, but yet I never can find anything that fills it up like this. The stamp set is huge but I really like it. Have to look into making a purchase on payday. I know how you feel about the comments. I asked a question of my followers (58) and got 4 responses. Oh, well I guess they like to look and run.
Your posts always inspire me to try harder and use things that I haven't tried yet such as this stamp set and the MS punch. So, you take care and like you said we'll see you when we can, but remember I'll be waiting.
Hugs
Sue

This is soo beautiful it takes my breath away! Your mom will be moved to tears. I know what you mean about finishing the inside. That's why so few of mine ever get sent. LOL Hey lady, sorry to hear you won't be posting as much but I know what you mean. What with the creating, posting AND commenting there's little time for anything else. I'm afraid I've been lax at the commenting, but when I do make it around I comment on EVERYTHING I've missed Gorgeous work, girlfriend. xxD

Wow, Kelly, another gorgeous card. Love everything about this very special card! Punching the borders along the entire length of your card is such a fabulous idea, it makes this card so unique...and of course those Nellie Snellen flowers are as beautiful as always! Your heartfelt sentiment on the inside is beautiful as well...and no doubt will bring tears of joy to your very special Mom.

Gorgeous card, Kelly and like you, I don't always finish my insides until I mail them.

Same sentiment about commenters here...if I had a comment for everyone who visited, it would take a couple of pages...I don't know why most people don't...it only takes a minute!
