Happy Mother's Day

I got surprised this morning by the girls and Eric with breakfast in bed. I also got many handmade gifts from the girls, and a handmade gift from Eric.

I have two Mother's Day cards to share with you today. Earlier this week I visited my friend Char's blog and came across a picture for the new challenge at The Shabby Tea Room. I knew of the existence of The Shabby Tea Room challenge blog, but I've never played along before because I don't consider my style as shabby chic or vintage. However, I don't think you necessarily need to have a shabby chic style to play along, but I guess that's what hold me back from playing along. Anyway, the first card based on challenge #60 is the one I made for my mom.



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Straw) | Patterned paper: October Afternoon (The Thrift Shop) | Flourish, pearl: Zva Creative (PES02CB106, AD01CB101) | Button: Papertrey Ink | Twine: May Arts | Ribbon: Cards & Wishes | Pin: Making Memories | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Tiny Tags) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo, Aqua Mist), Versafine (Onyx Black) | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Tiny Tags Dies), MFT Stamps (Die-namics Open Scallop Border), Spellbinders (Nestabilities Hearts), sewing machine | Other: lace, felt heart, burlap, sheet music, Aleene's tacky glue

The second card is for my mother-in-law. Again, I used the same color combination.



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Straw) | Patterned paper: October Afternoon (5 & Dime, The Thrift Shop) | Pearls, adhesive dots: Zva Creative (CR02CA127, AD01CB101) | Brad: American Crafts | Twine: May Arts | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Delightful Dahlia) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo), Versafine (Vintage Sepia) | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Parisian Lace Doily Die, Delightful Dahlia Collection, Double-Ended Banners Die), Martha Stewart Edge Punch, Spellbinders (Nestabilities Classic Circles Large), sewing machine | Other: felt heart, burlap, sheet music, Aleene's tacky glue

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
