Happy Mother's Day

I know - there's a lot of holidays between now and Mother's Day.  However, I saw this stamp from Stampendous on my shelf and wanted to create with it.  That's the beauty of paper crafting!  I decided to use this sketch from CPS.  I liked the simplicity of it.

I used some scraps from Fancy Pants' Like Father, Like Son.  The colors of the paper worked beautifully with CTMH Autumn Terracotta ink.  I don't know if CTMH has retired the stamp set Playful Petals.  I like stamping the petals individually and then fussy cutting them to create my flower.  The gems and organza flower are from Michael's.  The final touch was a little faux stitching with my white uniball.

Well, I was playing with my blog and loved the coffee cup background.  I'm usually drinking either hot or cold coffee when I'm reading blogs, so it seemed fitting.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope the first week of January is treating you well!
