Welcome to Addicted to Stamps and More #143 where my fabulous design team and I are inviting you to showcase cards that are holiday themed.
Today, I'm celebrating Mother's Day as a holiday; the day (should be a week long event, or maybe even a month, or twelve) when all moms are relieved of their mom-ly duties and given ample opportunity to languish about, doing whatever they want (How about an undisturbed bubble bath? Reading a book in peace and quiet? Shopping for things fun and frivolous, that they want? Uninterrupted crafting time?) and experiencing spoiling and pampering in every way possible. Yayyy... to moms, grandmoms, great-grandmoms, aunty-moms (a little self-plug there)! Just so you know: I am NOT a mom (got married way toooooo late for that to happen, but I am an auntie - and, years ago, used to be a mom to two fur-babies - so I think that kind of qualifies for at least a snippet of 'doing what I want' on Mother's Day...)
Here's my card...which, by the way, involved stenciling, sponging, stamping, a wee bit of cussing (it took 4 tries until I had a card I was happy with...and I still think it needs work). I know this stencil is better showcased by those talented enough to 'draw prints', but having no devices to create thusly, I did my best. The stencil created the green spaces and the flower 'openings,' which I then sponged and 'matching daisy' stamped.
