Mother's day is just around the corner

So, trying to decide if these cards are ready to go in the mail or if then need an additional touch or two.  I needed to come up with some inexpensive graduation presents as I have several students graduating this year so decided to do monogrammed match book sticky note holders for a few of them. 

This then inspired the first Mother's Day card that I'm sending to my mom:

I used the Alphalicious cartridge for the match book & crown, cut three flowers from Gypsy Wanderings that I attached with a brad, & the Happy Mother's Day is from Wild Card. 

Since I was looking through the Wild Card cartridge for sentiments, I decided to choose a card shape I haven't used before for my mother in law's card.  The sentiment is also from Wild Card, & the butterfly is from Give a Hoot. 

The paper used for the base of both cards is K&Company's Que Sera Sera (which I love).  So, you decide, too simplistic or ready to go?  [need to still add the gift cards to each]  Unfortunately, they can't be too elaborate as they both must go in the mail.


  1. Cannot figure out how to edit this post in the new blogger format, so just adding here:

    I'm submitting the Mother's Day Cards to Cardz TV challenge #107

  2. Pretty cards, you did great!!! When you log into your dashboard, right underneath your title of your blog there should be three titles. "Preview, Post and Followers" all with numbers in the front of them, you would click on the "numbers post" numbers specifically you will notice when you put you mouse over it! It takes you to all of your post!!! If you ever need to switch back to the old format you can do that too until you get use to using it!

    If you ever need any help look me up and I will help as much as I can!

    Thanks for joining CCC!
