For Her


If my wonderful mama were still on this earth I would send this card to her.
This is one of my favorite cards I've made this year.
I used a Kraft base and Avery shipping tag.
All other supplies are from Close To My Heart.
Stamp set:
Fabulous You and Buzz and Bumble WOTG stamp set.
Avonlea Papers
Opaque Gems and Color Ready Seam Binding which I tinted with ink.
I sprayed the tag with a mist I created using
Lagoon re-inker and a spray pen.
I used Saddle and the same technique for the bird image.
I inked all edges with Cashmere to give an aged look to the papers.
I am linking this up the The Kraft Journal blog for their weekly challenge which happens to be
"For Her".
Hope you have a wonderful, beautiful Mother's Day weekend.
This time of year is a bit hard for me, missing my mom.
But, my sweet daughter will home from college starting this weekend so I am
looking foward to some fun mother/daughter time.

This is one of my favorite cards of yours, too, Lynn! Such sweet and peaceful papers and bird image. Love the pretty font on the sentiment and love the misted tag. Really pretty. I know this time of year must be hard...hugs to you! So glad you have your daughter heading home to look forward to!

This card is beautiful, Lynn. Thinking of you at this time - it is a difficult time. Hard for me, too, because mom is gone & because I'm not a mom. So happy that Jo will be home!! Happy crafting.
