Mother's Day Hop at Exploring Cricut

Hello Crafty Friends,
 
Today brings a new challenge at Exploring Cricut . We are also having a special Design Team hop to share our projects to help celebrate Mother's Day, which is this Sunday, May 12th..
 
The Challenge...Mother's Day
Since my mom passed away unexpectedly about a year and a half ago, I made this card for my mother-in-law. She reminds me of one of those perfect moms that you would find on a TV show from the 50's. I have always teased my husband and said that they were the Leave it to Beaver family growing up. 
 
Here is my Exploring Cricut project...
 The sketch I used...
This flower is from Florals Embellished. There are many layers to use, but you can pick and choose which ones you want to add.
 I used Plantin Schoolbook to cut out mom....
but on the Floral Embellished cartridge, there are LOTS of phrases for Mother's Day. Aren't they FABULOUS?!?!
Materials:
Momenta paper
kraft and tan card stock
Florals Embellished Cricut cartridge ~ flower17 (p. 37) cut at 3"
Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge ~ ovals, scallop, and mom.
brown pearls
brown ink
 
Other Challenges:

The Prize...
Diane is giving away the Creative Cards Cricut cartridge to one randomly selected winner who enters the challenge. 
Be sure to visit Rae Ann next and see her wonderful Mother's Day project.
 
Hope you will join the "Mother's Day" challenge at Exploring Cricut this week. Can't wait to see what you create.
 
Stay Creative,
Georgiana

  10. Love the pearls you added to the flower! Great sketch too and your card follows it beautifully! I had no idea all those phrases were on that cart-I'd never had it on my want list-but this has changed my mind! Thanks for adding that screen shot of the phrases! Hope you have a lovely Mother's Day yourself :)
