Cards and Stamps

Mother's Day was a little difficult this year.  I miss my mom. It was odd not to be getting together with my family this weekend. We are scattered around this country this weekend instead. I guess we each had our own way of dealing with being without my mom today.

I visited my friend, Ann, at Studio 901 (also known as the Art House). Ann has a plethora of stamps and supplies and generously shares them with me when I visit. I decided that since I didn't need to make a card for my mom, I'd make one for her 93 year old mom. The background stripes are made with a Tim Holtz stencil. The Thinking of You is from one of those dollar sets at Michaels or JoAnn's.  I did not get the name of the company that made the flower.  It was a two sided stamp. One side was a solid block which I stamped off on a paper towel before stamping the paper. That is how I got the cool textured background on the squares. That is the pattern from the paper towel. I used Dried Marigold and Spiced Marmalade Distressed Ink.

    1. Thank you! I appreciate you visiting. I really like the tone and tone look these days.

  2. So pretty! Love the sentiment in place of a flower. I hear ya on missing your mom. Me, too.

  3. Thanks, Marjie, I'm sorry for you loss. My mom has been gone for three years. Not sure why Mother's Day was harder this year. I was glad I could make a card for my friend's, Mom. Thanks for taking the time to visit.


Thank you for taking your time to tell me what your think.
I appreciate your comments more than I can ever say.
