MOTHER

Oh Mother! Mothers are so special... They come in different kind of shapes but they are all very special. I can tell you about my mom... so unique. Sentimental, humble, lovable... at the same time a little weird ... hahahaha... I sometimes don't understand her... maybe it's because of her personality... maybe it's because I'm not a mom. The truth is that all mothers are special. Treasure yours if you have it... thank God everyday if you are one.



Mother's Day is next month... I've sometimes told you in my posts... I don't think we need a special day to give presents or celebrate love or relationships... but these days sure help... Mother's Day is a great tradition. Moms feel so good this day...

I made this card a few weeks ago when I received the new Cuttlebug machine... and I just wanted to see how it worked. I cut these hearts and embossed them and I said... Oh... I just wanted to see, these are scraps I had and I won't use these hearts... but then my compulsive obssession flourished... "I can't throw anything away... I have to use as much pieces of papers as possible"... hahahaha...
So I used this base cardstock from Hot Hues, which had similar colors of the hearts I had cut and embossed just for fun. Then I remember some dollies I'd bought and sprayed one with Shimmerz Spritz, shaped it as a flower and when dried, glued to the card.
I completed a flower with four circles bent twice, a flower and a button.

I stamped the sentiment about Mother's Day... and this is it. My first Mother's Day card of this year.
I hope you like it... or at least got some inspiration? Some say inspiration seldom motivates action... but action always motivates inspiration... so run now and take some action...
(card base: Hot Hues; stamp: Inkakinkado; inks: Color Box, Staz-on; flower: Portafolia; adhesives: Glue Dots, Scotch; miscellaneous: dollie, button, Shimmerz Spritz, Cuttlebug machine, die and embossing folder)
