Happy Mother's Day

Hi everyone! (long southern drawl) I swear it must be 89 degrees here! Hot, hot hot! This is quite unusual for May, but whadda ya do? We had a tornado sweep down on the south part of town last night and it was a surprise tornado...The weather service never even got to notify us. One good thing...no one was hurt. Lucky for me, I live on the East side. We got our much needed rain, but no damage.

This card is another that I have used Flourishesstamp from the Siberian Iris set. I love red on white and think it is just elegant! The background paper is some that I have had forever and is some sort of Japanese paper...just beautiful. The ribbon is some that I have had since Christmas of last year. I embossed the sentiment with Versamark and Red Embossing Glitter. I used the Heart Nestabilities...and SU's Pretties Kit for the hat pin. I guess that is all for this card.

I am working tomorrow...just for the fun of it! Not really, I am working tomorrow, because I have a lot of catching up to do at work. Not a bad thing and glad that Mother's Day is Sunday. I am the "luckiest" mother of all time (I know that sounded kinda bad). I have the greatest daughter in the world. She has been my baby, my buddy, my best friend, and my shoulder for most of her life! I just hope that I have been as great a mother to her as she has been a daughter to me.

I'll be posting another Flourishes card Sunday...I cannot wait to hear your comments, cause this one is a beauty, if I do say so myself. Once again, Happy Mother's Day to all of you!!

Beautiful card Velta! You are so lucky to have such a wonderful relationship with your daughter! Enjoy YOUR day on Sunday and stay cool!

I like red on white too! Pretty color red. The Japanese paper is very complimentary of the embellishments you added and make for a very "elegant" card. I hope you have a wonderful Mother's day with your daughter.

You're right, this is a beauty! My goodness--so elegant! The heart, ribbon and hat pin treatment is simply wonderful! Love the paper, too. I so glad the tornado didn't hurt anyone. We have nothing like that here. Big winds sometimes but no tornados, thank goodness!
