Making Cards for Mom

I've been working on my stash of OWH cards and making some for mother's day. Soon my box will be ready to send in. I missed the Easter deadline, but hopefully  I won't miss the Mother's Day deadline too!
This was pretty simple to make. The  dsp is QueSeraSera from K&Co and I just added some plain white for the horizontal border and sentiment. I used the Fancy Tags two, edging with a black marker and a spica glitter pen before cutting. A little dotted swiss red ribbon and a bow and this was done.

This was done along the same lines as the first card, only instead of a punched border, I used a die cut border from SNSS, alternating the punched hearts with a darker cardstock for a little contrast. The sentiment panel was done with a Fancy Tags Two die, and I added 3 more punched hearts like the ones in the border. The paper is also from the Floral Dreams collection, also by K&Co.
I have so many cards to get caught up with for orders and challenges, and I hope I can get them all finished soon! With weather in PA about to hit the low 60s in the next few days, I know I'll be itching to go outdoors to soak up some of that sunshine! I wish you all a lot of sunshine in your week too! Thanks for stopping by!

Carol, these are both really beautiful. They will melt a Mother's heart, for sure. I love those beautiful sentiment tags and the sentiments.

These are both very elegant with the pretty papers and fancy tags. You always do such a beautiful job and I know your cards will be greatly appreciated.

I no longer own Wild West, sorry I can't help there. Can't wait to see what you make next!

Carol, I';m way behind on commenting, I'm so sorry. These two cards are stunningly beautiful. You can make even a CAS type card look over the top. I am liking that heart die cut more and more and may have to get that one. I love both of those Fancy Tags and the way your outlined the first one really makes it pop. There will be two very happy Moms somewhere. I need to start making more cards this afternoon. Talk soon.
