Finally a card I can send!



*Phew* Mothers Day is almost here and I couldn't stamp anything I liked for 2 days. I finally saw this card in the SCS galleries by leslierich and I knew I could use that layout and design to make something for my mom. Thank you Leslie! She has a beautiful gallery. I have thrown away atleast 3 attempts at stamping this morning. Nothing was working. I made mistakes and had design screw-ups out the wazooo!Even the technical parts weren't working! Anyway, this is the final product. Primas, Basic Grey Stella Ruby Paper, stamps by Autumn Leaves Second Nature(acrylic set) were all used. My sentiment is inside. I decided to leave it off the front for fear I would mess up another card.



And here we have my MIL's version of the same card. I just changed the papers and colors slightly to make it a little different. I love Basic Grey paper and I feel like its about time I stop hording it and start using it. This is from the Perhaps pack. The primas are from the bra and panty packs. I used shimmer white paper on the central image instead of the watercolor paper this time.

Those are really great! I love how you used the Penny Black stamp to make the CS look like polka dot ribbon. How FUN!
