Mom's Day for Gram




I hope all the Momma's and Momma's-to-be had as wonderful day as I did yesterday :) My Mother's Day started out with a wonderful breakfast spread put on by my husband and kids, flowers, hanging baskets, cards with my kiddo's practicing writing their names in and a prezzie on the way ;) I'm sooooo spoiled!!! :D

I had a wonderful time enjoying my own family in the morning and then it was time to prep for dinner with my parents, brother with his wife and kids and my gram. I had my mom's gift all ready to go and in between making dinner and cleaning the house, I still needed a striking, yet quick card to make for my gram to celebrate her Mother's Day. I ended up surfing SCS and some of my favourite peep's blogs and decided to case Beate's gorgeous card. I swear that I could drool over Beate's creations for hours! Thanks Beate for all of your wonderful inspiration!



I changed up the card ever so slightly with different designer papers and a scrunch scallop circle flower instead of the rose. I love these flowers because they take mere minutes to make :D I added some sizzix die cut leaves and framed them around my Clear Dollar Stamps Mother's Day sentiment.

I was thrilled with how the card turned out and gram just loved it. My dinner for 11 was a big success and I couldn't have asked for nicer weather if I had tried. All in all I had a wonderful day with my family and I hope that you all did with your loved ones too :)

Thanks for coming by my way :)

Oh my goodness this is just beautiful Kim. I would love to make a flower like that. You say in mere minutes but I'm sure it would take me a "mere hour" to make mine look anything like a flower! :)
