Happy Mother's Day!

Wishing everyone celebrating in the USA a Happy Mother's Day! I'm sharing four cards to honor my mother, her sister who's like a second mom to me, and the two Queen Mum friends from my Sweet Adelines world.

Mom and Tia cards
Supplies: Paper - Neenah Parchment folded A2 card and Classic Crest Solar White; BoBunny dotted, 
Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Collection, Pop tone Black, Michael's green
Stamps - Hero Arts CL980 Happy Mother's Day and January 2017 My Monthly Hero kit, plus matching dies
Dies - Dee's Distinctively Wreath Builder
Other - Michael's gems, Copic Markers, white gel pen, and foam tape

I hadn't done much with the Hero Arts Mother's Day stamp set I bought last year so I pulled it out for this year. Mom got the card at left with the large flower from the set; on the inside I used one of the set's sentiments: "I'm so lucky to have you as my mom". Both my mom and my aunt have supported me all my life and I'm grateful for their love!

Queen Mum cards
Supplies: Paper - Neenah Parchment folded A2 card and Classic Crest Solar White; Pop tone Black; 
Bo Bunny Love & Lace Collection 6x6 pad, scrap of music paper from unknown
Stamps - Hero Arts CL980 Happy Mother's DayDC182 Butterfly Pair Stamp & Cut, and 
April 2017 My Monthly Hero kit, plus matching dies
Dies - My Favorite Things Die-Namics Blueprints 20 and Blueprints 26
Other - Michael's gems, foam tape, ink from various MMH kits & Memento Tuxedo Black; colored pencils

I had so much fun playing with the April 2017 My Monthly Hero Kit to create the elegant Queen Mum on the left for Mother Mary, voice teacher and friend extraordinaire. My other Queen Mum and friend Lou got the card at right. I just love the soft pink rose paper from the BoBunny pad - wish I had more!!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you're having a wonderful day!

I like all your lovely Mothers Day cards, but I especially the flowers wrapped in the music paper. That is a cute idea. Thanks for sharing!
