Mother's Day Cards

Yes I am back again!  Im here to share with you the mother's day cards that I put together.  Lately I have been creating only 2 of the same design, not many multiples, but I was pretty pressed for time before my surgery so I created 3 cards very similar for Mother's Day!  I know...I too wanted to make each Mom a different one, but like I said I was pressed for time this year, so it just couldn't happen...there's always next year.

I based this design off of my Grandma's 95th birthday card design.  I loved how her card turned out, and thought that I would do something similar again.

Here's the first card...

Here's the second card...

Here's the third card...

I think that this is the last post for today.  Going to rest my hand.  I very much enjoyed getting back to blogging about the cards that I love to create, and cannot wait to come get back to designing.
