Here are the cards that I made for my DDIL’s for Mother’s Day.

I am grateful for my daughters-in-law.  They are both such wonderful mothers and beautiful women inside and out.  My sons are so lucky to have found them.  I love them both with all my heart.

The flowers on both cards have been stamped twice.  After coloring the stamp directly with a marker, a flower was stamped.  Then I huffed* the stamp, turned it 90 to 180 degrees and stamped again.  Stamping a second time without applying more ink results in the second image being lighter and adds depth and dimension to the flower.

Because the stem on the flower was longer than I wanted, I only inked a portion of it before stamping.

These cards are a CASE of a RAK that I received a few years back from epiphany.  I loved her card!  It is such a timeless and beautiful design.  In fact this is the second time I have CASEd it.  On the first CASE, I added a background stamp to one of the large panels.

Both of my married sons live in the same city and this past week I flew south and visited with them.  It was so nice to see my sweet granddaughters.

Alivia has had a loose tooth.  While I was babysitting the twins one day it finally fell out!  She was so excited that there “wasn’t even any blood and it didn’t hurt at all”.  lol

I hope that all mothers and all those who mother have a wonderful day this Sunday.
