Mother's Day Card

To be honest... I'm horrified I named this post Mother's Day Card. The post I named Mother's Christmas Card gets looked at ALL the time. Apparently, what to write in a mother's card is quite mind boggling and folks Google it quite often and up pops up my Mother's Christmas Card. I imagine that will be the case with this card... but I am getting ahead of myself. 

First let me tell you about my "blind date" ... ;) lol We did meet... and as I wrote... I did't feel well... I had to throw up! :'( And there's no hiding it when you've done that. I splashed cold water on my face and then I not only had a beet red face... but the front of my top was soaking wet. :-\ Nonetheless, I believe it went very well and I am still super excited about making a new "crafty" friend in my home town! Yay! :)

Then, she brought gifts too! I was pleasantly surprised and horrified at the same time. Her gift was way over the top and I felt my gift was ever so mediocre after I opened hers. Look what she gave me:
I was just so THRILLED! My immediate thought was "I'll never part with these!" When we were saying our goodbyes that is the first thing she said "Don't hoard the flowers!" *GASP* It's almost as if she knew me already! lol ;)

Then she gifted me... The. Most. Awesome. Card. EVER! I. Love. It!
I had to find out where she got the image! I thought it was too cute! I recognized the eyes to be a Heather Valentine image and I was right. It can be found here. :)

Now... on to my Mother's Day card. I used a La-La Land Crafts digital image called Heart Key Marci. La-La Lands is having Contest #13 on their Facebook group and I am entering this card in that contest. Here is my card:
First, it's a massive card... 5.5X8.5. I didn't want to have to squeeze things in. I wanted there to be plenty of room and boy howdy... there is room! :-\ I used Graphic 45 Fashionista paper pad for all the printed card stock. Lace ribbon is from my stash. I used a Michael's Recollection lace border punch to add to the center row of ribbons. The white satin ribbon is from Raisin Boat. I used two Fiskars punches, Lace 3-in-1 Corner Punch on the image and Heritage 3-in-1 Corner Punch on the papers peeking out from behind the image. I colored the image in Copic markers. Then... I. Forced. Myself... to use three of the flowers Maria gifted me. I did as she did on my card... added Stickles in Star Dust on the flowers to make them even prettier!
