For My Mom

It's been a while since I sent my Mom a card, so this morning I made this for her.

Cardstock: PTI; designer paper (Girl's Paperie)
Ink: Versamark; Antique Linen Distress ink
Stamps: Hero Arts (Heart Winged Butterfly F5158; True Friends CG420)
Other: Snowflake Tinsel Embossing Powder (Ranger); Pearls (HA); Trim (old stash)

I cannot seem to put that Heart Winged Butterfly away, sorry, and there will still be another card tomorrow featuring the same stamp, but it seems like it just came alive on my craft desk!  Also, that SnowflakeTinsel Embossing Powder, I just think it is so beautiful!  I love the pieces of  sparkly glitter in it, and also it just does not appear stark white, more creamy really.  And I love how it looks against the Kraft card stock here.

No need for a sentiment because the background stamp says it all, plus what I will write inside will be the important stuff!

We had a great afternoon today, we went to see the Harlem Globetrotters!  They really are a funny bunch but can make some mean shots too.  Love it!



Have a wonderful weekend, what's left of it for you!  And thank you for visiting!
