Mother's Day......... shhhh.......... don't tell!

Tonight I set out to design and complete my Mother's Day card. Well, I had a few ideas already in my head, the ribbon and colors were all set so I just needed to put it all together. I bought these 8 1/2 x11 inch envelopes in this awesome watermelon color at Marco Papers (love that place!) and that was the inspiration for the card- is that pathetic? I am telling you- the envelopes are so cool though. I used celery for the base of the card, a nice inspirational saying printed on white cardstock and embellished with primas. I had some cute Micheal's ribbon that had little flowers on it similar to the simple flower in Simply Said, in celery, turquoise and rust colors- it all fell together and I love the way it turned out. The picture is cute but it is definately better in real life and I hope when that huge envelope arrives my mother will enjoy it.
And now I have told my boys that I expect the same from them (wink!). Now ladies, go and make those Mother's Day cards for that special mother of yours!

ps: I would so appreciate some comments or suggestions on what you would like to see on here. Lets me know someone is stopping in. (smile!)
