Buttons and Bows for Mom

Here's a little Mother's Day card I made.
These are really hard for me to make.
They remind me of my Momma and I miss her everyday. (she passed away 22 yrs ago)

My co-workers ask for me to make cards each year so this one is for one of them to give out.





*Base card 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Pattern paper from Paper Pizazz cut at 5.5 x 3 in.
*Scallop strip punched on both sides using the Martha Stewart Scallop Dot punch.
*Flower cut at 3 in. from the Cricut Paper Lace cartridge.
*Flower circle center cut at 1.75 in. from Cricut Craft Room Basics cartridge.
*Happy Mother's Day sentiment stamp from Close To My Heart.
*Celebrate It ribbon from Michaels.
*DMC embroidery thread bows.
*Buttons from my stash.


Thanks for looking.

    Take care,
