Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you who celebrate Mother's Day this month.

I have a card for you today that uses the sweet Best Dressed image! She is too adorable.  I think she would be great for a Mother's Day card.

Card Ingredients:

Inks:  Distress Inks
Paper:  MME - Dolled Up
Tools:  EK Success Leaves Punch
Embellies:  Sweetheart Blossoms, 10mm Open Roses, White Rose Buds and Aqua Curly Rose all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I cut the small butterflies from the paper and added glitter here and there and sewed all the edges.

If you pick up a copy of the Cardmaking and Papercrafts Magazine you'll see this card and several more this month.  I was super excited to contribute!

I have a few pictures to show you today also.  As some of you know, Alyssa graduated this past weekend so here is a little photo of us right after she graduated.  We are proud parents I tell ya.

This is her cake we bought her! She loved it!

Now for a pic of the flowers the kids got me for Mother's Day!

I love them!!!
Thank you for stopping by my blog.  I know I have been super busy and not posting, but I appreciate those who have visited very much!!!

Hugs, Dena

  12. Hi Dena,
    You will giggle at me know but I saw your photos and looked at your daughter first and thought it was you. As we say here, she is the spit of you! You don't look alike, she looks exactly like you! just a couple of years younger. Wow. That is a treasure of a photograph of the three of you; you won't ever forget that day will you.
    The cake is lovely.
    I saw the cards in the mag and knew they were yours instantly. They're all so pretty; but you always produce gorgeous cards. The lovely card you sent me has pride of place on my craftroom wall and I show it off to everyone that visits there!
    Happy Mother's Day Dena, I hope you are being spoiled today and you enjoy every minute.
    Take care, hugs Linda xx
