Boo Boo:(

My son is going through a huge boo boo phase:( It seems everyday he is getting another bump or bruise. Hopefully he won't be accident prone, but that seems to be the words of the day lately. Exciting news we got in a new shipment of Hero Arts Sparkle Clear stamp sets, very cute! We should be getting our shipment of Pink Cat Studio stamps any day now so keep checking! Remember April is almost over so if you need to use that 40% off coupon head on over:) And make sure to sign up for our newsletter to receive Mays 40% coupon code.
I'm posting a few Mother's Day cards today. It seems like a have a ton to make, which is good, all my grandmothers are still living and a great grandmother:) My husband has a couple on his side too, then there are Aunts, and of course my mom and mother-in-law. Whew, that's a lot! All amazing moms and one soon to be! I need to get busy and finish the rest, so here are these ones.
Lovin' the Billy stamp set. I made this one to give to my mom from my son. Hope she likes it. The paper is Cutie Pie by SU! Got it from Joann, a wonderful consultant:) I colored little Billy and his pet frog in with my Copic Markers that I won over at Cambria's blog:) Thanks Cami!
These two cards were made with Graphic 45 design paper which I got over at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique (PSB) of course:) Starting with the one on the left. I made this one for my sister-in-law in So. Cal. Sorry about the finger, I couldn't get the picture right. The flap wanted to stick out so I had to hold it. The scalloped edge is not crooked even though it looks that way:( The stamp set is Garden Box Set by Stampendous. Which I stamped with Stazon Timer Brown ink and then colored in with my Copics:) I added some glitter and ribbon to finish it off. The inside of the card reads Happy Mother's Day.
The card for my mom was made as I said, with Graphic 45 paper. No stamping on the front of this one, which is rare for me, but I wanted to do something a little different. I stitched around the edges with my Janome. The flower is by Prima, again from PSB, and accented with Making Memories gemstone brads. The ribbon is Offray from Joann's and then I printed out the sentiment from my computer onto vellum.
Well I hope everyone has a non accident prone day:) Enjoy!
Happy Stamping:)
