Mother's Day Card for COF


Good Evening Friends!
How was your weekend?  Mine was very nice!  Brandon attended his first dance at the Middle School & Bianca and I just hung out doing girly things.  We had a great time and I'm looking forward to our next girl time together!!!

Anywhooo, my post is for the SCS group I belong to named Crafters of Faith.  This month we were challenged to make a Mother's Day card that is 5x7 in size, uses at least 1 die cut & have a matching envelope.  As you can see I do not have a matching envelope yet because I'm a bit challenged with figuring out the size I need for it via my Simply Scored tool.  It's probably really easy to figure out & once I sit down with a clear head.....I won't waste so much cardstock!

I used Rose Red as my base along with Regal Rose, Whisper White & Basic Black.  Vintage Vogue, Fifth Avenue Floral & Full of Life were my choices for stamp sets & I used one of my fave Re-Inker techniques for the rose and I LOVE how it came out!  I hope you enjoy it too along with the rest of the creations the girls made.  You can find the links to their blogs on my left sidebar.

Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the evening!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
