I finished my cards for my mother for Mother's Day. I hate that I rushed because they didn't turn out as nice as I would have liked. I am going to work on some sets to keep around for quick gifts. I used the gatefold card from Stamp tv on a few, the Stamp tv quilt card on one, and the pinwheel from on some. I also used my new Kreate-A-Lope to make cards and envelopes to match. Most of the cards I left blank on the inside so she could personalize them and she liked that.

Here they are.

This one with the north wind blowing the leaves off the tree is her favorite. I had no idea what she would do with it but when I got started I couldn't stop. I heat embossed the tree and stickled the leaves and north wind.

Somehow I missed scanning two of them. I did one black and white with black flowers on the front and one word in each flower center that said I'm thinking of you. The other card that didn't get scanned is a card with praying hands on front and a poem of encouragement inside. On the black and white one and the happy anniversary one I used a new technique I learned. Making your own rubons. I printed the words backwards onto some over head projection paper and then rubbed the words right where I wanted them.
