Mother's Day Card for the MIL

I made a Mother's Day card for my husband to send to his mother. When I took the card in and handed it to him, his response was "you made yourself a card?" @@ Men...



Once again I'm completing two challenges with one card. The sketch is from Mojo Monday. Make sure you participate in this week's challenge, they will be giving away up to seven Verve Stamps stamp sets. The OCC challenge for this week was to create something for the moms in our lives. I made this card in 5 X 6 1/2, I just didn't think an A2 size was good for a Mother's Day card (is it just me, or are all of the store-bought Mother's Day cards HUGE???). The papers are CTMH That's Amore, with cardstock in Garden Green, Blush, Chocolate Brown, and Tulip. The ribbon is also CTMH. I used my Fiskars Threading Water punch, Cuttlebug Textile embossing folder and Nestabilities Labels One. The green label was actually cut out by using my Coluzzle swivel knife to trace around the same die I used to cut out the pink label. Stamp set used was CTMH Say It In Style. Inks used were Blush (sponged on the pink label) and Tulip. I was about to say that I didn't go crazy with this card because I wasn't sure that my MIL would appreciate the effort that goes in to a handmade card, but once I typed it all out, I realize that I did put a lot of work into this. She'd better appreciate it!!

too funny! My husband will sometimes make an effort to look at the stuff I make, but I can just see his eyes glazing over. He would much rather be playing xbox. Still, your hubby thinking you made yourself a card was too funny.

I just had to check out your blog after reading a post on the CTMH board.
