Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to you all! I am sharing a card I made with you as well as my Mother's Day gift to my mother (Happy Mother's Day especially to her). I went to Origins Cosmetics (Mom's favorite) and picked up a mascara and an eyeliner for her because she said she needed them. I packaged them with a couple of samples from Origins and some Godiva dark chocolate covered almonds (YUM!) and made this tag using justjohanna's Paisley Heart on a Daisy D's card stock tag. I wrote "I only have EYES for Mom" on the tag. The tag is actually a leftover from the card stock die cut shapes I received for a justjohanna assignment. We were sent Daisy D's sheet of die cuts from the Wonder Years "Wonderland" line, which were designed by Stephanie Dosreis. If you've never been to her blog, you MUST check it out! Anyway, I have to admit that I'd never used die cuts and was a little nervous about it. But I had SO much fun using these things! And drawing from these vibrant, happy colors was a good change for me.

This card features Bernard Right, which I thought would be nice with the card stock hearts.

Stamps: Bernard Right (justjohanna). Paper: Pink Passion, Summer Sun, PTI White. Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Palette Noir. Accessories: Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Stamping Bella Pearl Baubles, Daisy D's Wonderland Die Cuts, Corner Rounder Punch.
