Happy Mother's Day! I know it is a day early but I am very excited because one of my gifts this year is new garden beds for the front of my house. I have been here in this house for 35 years and have lots of wonderful gardens around the house. Right along the front of the house though we have had evergreen shrubs that had no character and just got bigger and bigger every year. My husband just didn't want to pull them out. This year when my son, who has his own landscaping company, was complaining about the mess that they were causing with the walk and the lawn (and he was tired of listening to me complaining about it) suggested that it would make a great Mother's Day gift for me to let me have the new gardens. My husband agreed, the old bushes are gone, my son designed the new gardens and I am going to the garden center today with my son to pick new plants and tomorrow my son and husband are going to spend the day putting everything in the ground!
I made this card for the Going Grey with Scrap-Creations challenge this week. The theme this week is Mother's Day. I knew I wanted to do something different for my mom's card this year, and I know she likes classic better that over the top cards. I played around with different ideas until I came up with using my Rubber Stamp Tapestry peg stamps and stamping around just the first letter of Mother. I printed it out multiple times on a piece of copy paper and stamped around the letter different ways, just on the beginning, on just the top or only on the bottom. I decided that I like all around it the best and this was the end result. I am happy with it and think my mom will like it too.
If you made a card for your mom tomorrow why not share it with us over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations we would love to see what you made for your mom!
