My Sheri Crafts Ch. 84 April Showers Bring May Flowers to Mom

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Yay! It is Saturday and time for another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! Challenge 84 is April Showers Bring May Flowers to Mom! Time to celebrate those special ladies in our lives! We are asked to create a Mother's Day card/project and add flowers!

My card is 5"x 7" white cardstock. Designer papers are K&Company Sweet Nectar Speciality Paper. I was inspired by a sketch from PageMaps June 2008.

Cricut cartridges:
Flower Shoppe - Page 17. The flower is called sunflower but I thought it would accent the flower in top left corner of the paper. I used image 1, 2, and 4 each cut at 3". Page 22 -- Mum leaf cut 1.5". I used a water spritz and crunched the flower cuts to make the flower.
Florals Embellished - Page 51 - Phrase Mom cut at 1".

Other supplies include Offray yellow ribbon, Recollections gemstone, and inking.

Be sure to stop by My Sheri Crafts and see all the gorgeous projects for Moms that our guest designer and talented design team have created for your inspiration. We appreciate your visits and comments at our individual blogs! Now it is your turn to make a Mother's Day project--remember to add flowers! Several Ooh La La awards are given and one winner will be chosen to be a guest designer at My Sheri Crafts! It could be you but you must join in the challenge!
Thanks for your visits and comments!

Best Wishes

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It has been awhile since I have posted but I will be back on Saturday with a new project for My Sheri Crafts. Be sure to visit tomorrow and play along with us!

Meanwhile, I am working with the new blogger interface---yes--just when I got used to the old one!!
I discovered a card post in draft that I had never posted when I first started my blog so I am sharing  with you today to see how things work out!

This is a card that was previously posted on the Cricut Messageboard using one of the sketches from RAQ'S Card Challenge 7/7 - 7/13 (I think 2010) and the colors of the Ad Color Challenge that week.

Card is 6 1/2 X 5. The background paper is a paper that I had a long time, and could not make myself cut it. But now that the card is completed, I am glad that I finally used the paper.

Cricut cartridges:
Cuttin' Up - Best Wishes cut 2 inches
Storybook - G Accent/Blackout for the background behind the cake, cut 2 1/2 inches; Butterfly (oops, did not record size)

Cuttlebug - Swiss Dots on the sentiment. Cake is from the Birthday folder set.
Martha Stewart - Doily Lace trim. Used a corner punch to make the corner accent.
Recollections - gemstones

Thanks for your visit!
