Who can take the place.....

Hello and happy Thursday stamping friends. WOW, where has this week gone?  Can you believe that in just little over a week  it is already Mother's Day?  I have no idea what my girls have in store for me, I leave that all up to them, and usually they do something real special for me!  I have made a sweet little card to send to my MIL and I thought I'd share it with you all. I am also entering this in this month's challenge over at Craft Source.  I started with some dreamy paper called Bella Rose, some Venise lace, lots of flowers and this sweet sentiment, perfect to describe all of the wonderful mothers out there from a stamp set by Our Daily Bread Designs called "Mom". This is an older set, but I absolutely love the quote and how perfect it is for Mother's Day. Have a look at and see for yourself

Who can take the place......


Paper: PTI white, SU Pink Pirouette, DP First Edition Bella Rose

Stamps: ODBD Mom

Inks: VersaFine Onyx Black, Memento Angel Pink

Accessories: ODBD Custom dies Vintage Flourish Pattern, Vintage Labels, tutu trim in pink (hand dyed with homemade shimmer spray, white heart Venise lace, white embroidered lace, WOC flowers and leaves, flat back pearls, pearl pick, rhinestones, rhinestone and pearl trim

Size: 6"x 6"

Well, what do you think about the card I've made for my MIL? I kept is fairly simple as I have to mail this one out and can't hand deliver, but I think it still have enough pretty things on it for her to feel special and appreciated.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope that you all have a fabulous day!

Hugs and blessings,
