I meant to have this post out earlier today but had saved it as a draft and forgot to tell it when to post. My mother lives far away so I do not get to see her very often. She will get a phone call shortly. This made me think how there are so many people in our lives who are so special and how important it is to let them know. What better way than with a handmade card. I made this card for that very reason, using Sparkle N Sprinkle’s Hummingbirds & Flowers Stamp Set and some lovely cardstock I have had in my stash for a while.
The HibiscusFlower is embossed with Teddy Brown Embossing Powder and colored with chalks and a Dove Blender. They are layered on some very sparkly Pine Star Embossing Powder. Head over to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog for more details or you can find it in the gallery here.
All the stamps used on this card can be purchased individually or together in the Hummingbirds& Flowers stamp set, on sale this month at a 15% discount. Check out all the May monthly specials.
Also, don’t forget to come back for a sneak peak of some new SNS stamps about to be released, along with the Sparkle and Sprinkle Celebrating Summer Blog Hop on May 17-18.
Happy Mother’s Day!!
