RAKS



Happy Mother's Day to all of the Moms out there! I hope you all have a great one!
I received this gorgeous card yesterday from my friend and SU! demonstrator Deanna Wolfe. Isn't it beautiful? I don't know if I had enough light on this to capture the beautiful, soft embossing on the green panel, but it's there! You can click on the picture to enlarge it and see it better. I love the colors and that striking single bloom! Thanks Deanna, I owe everything to you for that first card class you taught that immediately hooked me on cardmaking. I loved receiving your thoughtful card:) You can visit Deanna's blog here or locate it on the sidebar.




And this awesome card is from none other than my blogging partner Heidi. The details on this card are outstanding to say the least! The tree is made up of all different sized punched circles! I love the little popped up birds and nest, and the sentiment is wonderful done on a billowy blue cloud! She has it all layered on some gorgeous glittered ribbon that really shimmers more than the photograph shows. I'm so thankful to be able to post some of Heidi's work on here, since she's too busy with taking care of her outdoor chores to get much stamping time lately. Thanks Heidi, your friendship has been such a blessing to me!
I'm blessed to have such wonderful friends who always make life meaningful with their kindness and generosity. I celebrate you ladies today and wish all of you a most heartfelt Happy Mother's Day!
