happy mother's day!

hope all of you moms out there are having a ♥FAB♥U♥LOUS♥ day! i made this card for my mother, whom i saw on friday and will see again midweek, but probably won't see today, so i thought i'd blog her a happy mother's day, instead! 

(flocked paper and pink brad: my mind's eye; patterned paper: basic grey, kay and co, american crafts, kaisercraft; acrylic hearts: heidi swapp; rub-on letters: ki memories; flower and pink rhinestones: michaels; twine: doodlebug; ink: colorbox; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, gluedots, sewing machine)

i used the current palette at colour q which is rather ravishing* i think you'll agree. i have to tell you that in real life, my darker shade of pink looks A LOT MORE like "strawberry slush" than it does in the photo. which is a bit of a shame, seeing as all you can see on t'internet is the photo. ah well. it's pretty close, honest! and you are all officially invited over to see the card in person... how's that?! :)

and now back to your regularly scheduled mother's day celebrations! if you're stumped for what to do, may i suggest chocolate and papercrafting??!?! (you're welcome, darlings!) ♥♥♥

*assuming you like pink... which i do... i may have mentioned that once or twice! :)


  1. Yay! I'll be right over:)
    This is gorgeous..I love the addition of the mason jar!

  2. How sweet is that jar of hearts...the only thing better than a jar of hearts is a jar of chocolate! Thanks for playing along at Colour Q Lauren!

  3. CHOCOLATE! And crafting! Now there's a winning combo ;) Love the stitching & doily & all those sweet hearts :)

  4. Ooh that turned out neat.. :) I love the jar and the hearts.

  5. So sweet and playful looking. Love the sweet hearts!
