Back with a Mother's Day Card

What better way to get back into the swing of things than to make something for a good reason!  Celebrate our Mothers.  And it fits in with this month's theme at Hero Arts to make something "Just for Her"!

I was trying to keep myself awake for as long as possible last night as I am rather jet lagged and I made it to 22h30 and have a card to prove it!

Paper: cardstock (PTI); designer paper : Basic Grey (Konichiwa)
Ink: Memento: Gray Flannel; Versamark; Copic Markers
Stamps: Hero Arts( Etched Flower With Stem; Happy Mom's Day)
Other: white embossing powder; Star Dust Stickles

Here is a little close up of how gorgeous those stickles are:

We had a wonderful holiday which ended on THE most wonderful note, this picture will tell you why:

If only you knew how many ridiculously hilarious pictures there are of Lisa and I trying to jump in tandem!  Oh boy, we laughed so much, it was SO good for the soul!  I miss you already Lisa!

Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Welcome back Brenda. Looks like you and Lisa had a great catchup. Your card is awesome..what a great way to stay up, creating this gorgeous card. Love the stickles on the flower. I've been resisting buying this as I've put myself on a no-buying diet!!!!!

Great to see you were able to bust out at least one new stamp! So many new things...where to begin!!
Card looks great :)
You already know how I feel about you being here- it was the BEST.
