Mother's Day Marathon

This weekend was my own Make Mother's Day cards for OWH marathon.  I have a box that is about 30 to 40 cards shy of being packed full.  So my goal was to make Mother's Day cards or Mother themed card and get that box packed full.

Usually when I make a card - I do multiples of that card design.  They won't be identical, but I can cut out several of the same shape and make several cards with a similar design.  That is the case with this card:

I actually used The Paper Players #188 sketch and will be entering the challenge.

After I took my first pictures I decided to add some pearl pen in black.

I used my Silhouette Cameo sketch pen to write Love you Mom and the Cameo to cut out the hearts.  As I mentioned before I cut out several hearts so I also used these sentiment hearts on another group of cards earlier.  I used a Bo Bunny 6X6 paper pad for the patterned paper.  And then I embossed the background with a dots folder.  I  finished it off with Pearl Pen.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting.  Have a great day and be inspired.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;  in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.


  1. What a lovely Mother's day card....nice to be able to use that silhouette for some of the parts! Papers are gorgeous! Thanks so much for playing with the Players this week!

  2. Wonderful cards and it's amazing what the black pearl pen adds!

  3. I love that you are creating so many Mother's Day cards for OWH. Thank you for doing that for our troops! I also love the way you used the sketch at the Paper Players this week. I love all the patterns and textures you created on the card and, you are right, the black pearl pen does add so much great interest. So glad you joined us at the Paper Players this week
