Happy Mother's Day

I needed to make a few Mother's Day cards in a snap, as in like "Gee, I need cards for tomorrow!" and here is what I cooked up! I used a mixture of SU Bloomin' Beautiful and Bloomin' With Love stamp sets. Apparently, I was in a Bloomin' mood but just couldn't make up my mind, so when in doubt use them both!

This beautiful dainty background paper is an old SU DP, and it reminds me of country wallpaper in a welcoming bed-n-breakfast - that's my story and I'm stickin to it! I lightly stippled my stamped image with Antique Linen to highlight the spring yellows! I love it!

The tabbed sentiment looks like tiny typewriter print - remember back when the old typewriter keys looked like that? I must be feeling nostalgic today or something!

Inside of card to match! Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there!

ooooooooooh! i LOVE cards that have the insides decorated in a coordinating fashion! (i usually forget that bit until the veryVERY last minute, and wind up just writing a greeting in smeary pen...i should work on that...) and these are particularly cool, i must say. i would definitely NOT have known these were "last minute" cards!
