Mothers Day Cards

Happy Monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Our weather took a quick turn today. We were having 80 degree temps last week and today our high was about 48 degrees. We are expecting frost tonight with temps dipping down into the 29 degree range.

Hubby brought his container plants in and covered all the gardens. Temps will be back on the rise in a few days.  Our tulips are just ready to open and some warm sunny days will do it.

Meanwhile, I have another head cold. I went to Bible Study last Tuesday and the teacher was really sick with a cold. We were in a small room and he was coughing away. So now I have it.

Oh well, onto my card for today. I made these 3 for the clean and simple challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Jen was our hostess and she provided us with an inspiration challenge. I used the cupcake colors of pink and green to make my 3 cards.

On all 3 cards I used the stamp set from
 Marks Finest Papers-"mother's magolia" & the cuttlebug folder "framed flourishes".

1st card: I stamped the protector, teacher, friend sentiment in the center of this frame and added a rose. On the card inside I will stamp "happy mothers day". My card base on this one is certainly celery. I punched butterflies in pink pirouette to complete my card.

2nd card: stamped the magnolia image and colored with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Cut it out and placed it in the center of my frame. My card base is Stampin-Up's pear pizzazz. I punched some butterflies in pretty in pink to complete this card.

3rd card: I stamped the mothers day sentiment and added a rose to the frame. My card base is pretty in pink. I punched some butterflies in pear pizzazz dsp to complete this card.

That's itfor me today. So until next time.......God bless


  1. A wonderful trio of cards! Hope you feel better soon. I know you must be getting tired of being sick. Hopefully warmer weather will bring better health for everyone.

  2. These are such pretty Spring cards, Mary. I love the embossing on them as well as the butterflies and that magnolia bloom is gorgeous. Feel better soon.

  3. All are fantastic!! Love the spring colors and designs on each and every one of them. And the butterflies are just the perfect addition! Lovely.
    Hope you feel better soon!

  4. Hi Mary!! I hear you on the big change in weather. We're having it, too! And so sorry to hear that you aren't feeling well again. We've got a few sniffly noses here, although I suspect that may have something to do with the sudden spike in pollen from all that nice weather last week!!

    These are great CAS cards--I just LOVE those pretty springy colors!!!

  5. These are so pretty Mary well done hugs Elaine
