Bouquet for Mom

     Greetings on a wonderful Saturday morning!  We've had such beautiful spring weather for the last week and it makes me think of flowers, gardens, butterflies...  It seemed like a good weekend to make bright sunshiny cards, including one for Mother's Day - a favorite holiday only now I celebrate them with my daughter, DIL and GDIL since my mom has been gone for many years.


     I used ProMarkers to color the image (from Di's Digi Designs) and a die from Amy Designs to frame the image.  This is only the second time I've used this relatively new die and I really love how it looks.  It's a bit hard to adhere but I used a glue pen and it went fairly quickly.

     The ribbon is from my stash and the bow is one of those I sew by the dozens and toss in my stash for future use.  Again, it was made with white, satin ribbon but I dyed it with a ProMarker.

     I hope you have a fantastic weekend planned and that the weather is nice wherever you are.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
