A card for MOM

Wanted to share a few cards that I created last night using the freebies found at Rhonna Farrer's Blog HERE.  I used both of the freebies, when using the banner freebie I simply cut out some of the banners and made them into strips.  Also, some of the cards have the cute round pieces found on the banner freebie. I simply reduced them to a size I wanted then hit the print button did some cutting and inking and gluing.  I did grab some vintage sewing patterns, ribbon and extra embellishments I had on hand from the line "the girls paperie" by Margie Romney-Aslett.  On a few of them I used a Mother's day stamp and punch from Stampin Up and I think they turned out adorable and so easy to make! 

I don't have kids so I will be celebrating my mom, sister and sister-inlaw this Sunday.  I am actually hosting a luncheon for them, nothing fancy mind you.  The hubby will be grilling burgers and for dessert I plan on having an ice-cream Sundae bar, yum!  I will of course use more of Rhonna's freebies to decorate, I have a banner started already.  I will be sure to post photos hopefully Sunday night.

 Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms!

If you click on the photos they will come up in a larger size for you.





The card below was simply printed inked and a little bit of stickles added for some bling.
