Happy Mother's Day

I wanted to show the card I made for my Mom and Mother-in-law for Mother's Day. I used the newly released set Jacaranda by Doodle Pantry. As you know, purple is not my color, but I thought I would break out of my shell a little bit because after all, it's for our Moms!! The strip of green designer paper is from this set also while the purple is from my stash. Of course they were quick and easy to make since I used the color version...just wish I didn't wait till the last minute to make 'em!! After all, they needed to be in the mail today! But they made it!

A few challenges I'd like to play along with include:
Sassy Studios - April Showers Bring May Flowers
Inky Impressions - Mother's Day
The Sisterhood of Crafters - April Showers Bring May Flowers
Celebrate the Occasion - Happy Mother's Day

Very pretty and perfect for Mothers Day - mine were made earlier in the week as I had to mail them with their packages. I am sure they will love this card.

This is BEAUTIFUL...I love the stitching. I'm so sewing machine challenged, it's not even I'm envious of those who can use one!

Gorgeous, Linda! Great card for Mother's Day. Beautifuly done. The pairing of the image and sentiment as well as the background papers work very well together.

(Know the feeling!... I'm always last minute getting things mailed on time, even if I make 'em early!)
