Mother's Day Card 2012

"We never know the love of the parent until we become parents ourselves."
Henry Ward Beecher

What a true statement!  Whether or not you're a parent, you may not appreciate just how much your Momma loves you.  Don't forget to let her know how very important she is to you and how much you love her on May 13, Mother's Day.

This card share is one for Mother's Day.  I would so much love to give this to my Momma, but she is in heaven.  But if your Mom is still with you, don't take her for granted and shower her with love and appreciation on her special day.  Make her a handmade card; she'll love that.

This card is made with Concord Crush Card Stock (which expires on May 31) and Wild Wasabi Card Stock.  It is 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" and scored at the 3-1/4" mark.  The flower is a replica of one on the front page of Stampin' Up!'s May issue of Stampin' Success, a magazine that demonstrators receive monthly.  I made it by using the large leaf from the Blossom Petals Punch.  Isn't it so cute?  Guess which stamp I used to make the Wild Wasabi swirls at the top and bottom of the flower?

 The right side of the card features the Vine and Blossom Standard Wheel,  Postage Stamp Punch, You're A Gem Stamp Set (which retires on May 31), and the word, Mother, on one stamp from Messages for Mom Stamp Set (which also retires).


God's Blessings!
