Happy Mother's Day


Hello friends!  I hope everyone is having an absolutely wonderful Mother's Day today!  The boys started my day with breakfast in bed and handmade cards from all of them. Marcel's card made me laugh...he filled out a question and answer sheet from school and it said, "My mom is smarter than a bumble bee."  Love their analogies. The best is them explaining why they wrote/colored something just for me.  Makes my heart so happy!

I had some time to craft this morning so I'm popping it to share two cards.  The first is for Pat's mom.  She loves all things blue so of course her mother's day card had to have blue on it!  It follows the Fusion Card Challenge Sketch.

The card below is for a dear friend who recently lost his dad to dementia.  So sad, but also a blessing for him.  He was very devoted to his father.  This card is inspired by CASE this Sketch and Maile's fabulous CASE Study card that is a gorgeous tone on tone sympathy card.   

Enjoy your beautiful Mother's Day!  I'm off for a pedicure with my wonderful mum in just a bit!

  7. Oh, Lynn, these are both beautiful. The gingham bird really works for this clean and simple sympathy card (I may case this idea!) Enjoy your mother's day with your boys. I follow your blog (but don't often comment) and enjoy all your stories of show choir etc.

  9. Happy Mother's Day, Lynn! "Smarter than a bumblebee" sounds awesome! My little one gave me a big card with the words "I love my mum because she makes me yummy meals like nuggets and chips". Processed food! Out of all the beautiful food I make her, she chooses the treat meal that she gets once in a blue moon! What must her teachers think? LOL!

    Your cards are beautiful. I think your sympathy card is perfect. Very calm and warm.
