Hi and happy Saturday! Are you ready for Mother’s Day tomorrow? I am! I made cards for my step-mom and J’s mom — both using some new Hero Arts stamps from the Stamp Your Story catalog and BasicGrey Mint Julep papers. Love.

I kept the card on the clean and simple side to focus on the gorgeous rose in the new Remember set.

I love you Mom! :)

It has such great texture, don’t you think?

To get this look, I just inked the stem and leaves with a cottage ivy marker, then used worn lipstick on the whole rose and added a little rhubarb stalk to the edges. Misted it with water and that was that!

That “I love you Mom!” stamp from this set is a good one in my opinion, because you can use it all year long. Who needs to wait for Mother’s Day to tell our moms we love them? Not me! :)

My step-mom and my dad just celebrated their 27 year wedding anniversary yesterday — so crazy how time flies by, right? I can still remember the wedding. And the fun we had baking a chess pie together last time I was home for a vist. (And eating  it, yum!)

And, I am so lucky to have a wonderful MIL. I know many people who don’t really like theirs. But me? I am lucky. We share a love of nature, photography, J (of course) and — are you ready for it? — stamping!!!  Check out her blog right here.

I love you, Moms! Wish we we lived closer. Happy, happy Mother’s Day. xx
