Happy Anniversary!

Our very good friends are celebrating 15 wonderful years of marriage this week! I made this special card for them. I used some DP from Close To My Heart, spellbinders to cut out those adorable hedgehogs from Penny Black and a few copics to color, I can't remember when the buttons came from but they match the hollyhock paper pretty good.

Mother's Day Cards (done early this year, I usually make them on Saturday!)

Celebrating Mothers day this weekend, I'm usually a last minute card maker. But last night I got a call from my parents, they are coming home on Saturday! I haven't seen my mom since the middle of December when we celebrated an early Christmas! I'm so excited to see her and show her my baby belly ;)

I wanted to create a special card for my mum, so I went searching on and found a great tutorial on tri-shutter cards. I was able to ink up two new stamps to my collection. Fairy Tale Belle and Swiss Pixies Heidi amont the flowers both from CC Designs. Both girls were colored with copics, sorry I forgot to keep them out to list for you. Cardstock used was from CTMH Hollyhock and Olive. DP, ribbon, stickers, buttons were from Stampin Up (Ice Cream Parlor)

Now I just need to decide which card to give to my mum and which to give to DH mom... any suggestions?
