Mother's Day Cards

Mom - stop right here or you'll see your card before Mother's Day.

For the rest of you....continue on. LOL!!

I made two cards for Mother's Day this weekend.  They were both similar in style, but yet different.  I was very pleased with the way they finally turned out.  I haven't been able to find Glimmer Mist in any of my local craft stores, but I did find some Sheer Shimmer Spritz today that I think must be a very similar product.  All I can say is...oh my, I could love this stuff.  My daughter actually wanted me to spray her so she would sparkle.

Supplies used were:
Forgive the "bad photos".  As I said in my earlier post, my hubby had the "good camera" at the wrestling tournament, and I wanted to get this photographed while I still had some light.

Here's the first card.  The pictures below are of the inside.  They are a little fuzzy, but I was trying to get a good picture showing the shimmer spritz on the lettering.  Hopefully it shows up a little.  The pink "paisleys" are a stamp that I created the background with using ink the same color as the cardstock.  I did the same on the inside of the second card.

Here's card number two.  Similar style, but the inside is different.  I used the shimmer spritz all over the inside of the card.  I think it shows up better in this picture.

Thanks for stopping by!  Remember, my "blog candy" drawing will be held on April 30.  All you have to do is leave a comment on the blog candy post and become a follower.  I picked up a few items for the drawing over the weekend.  I'll post some pics of the goodies sometime this week.
