Mother's Day Blog Hop

Welcome to our Mother's Day blog hop. We are making some great projects that will hopefully inspire you to make some beautiful crafts for whomever you cherish on Mother's Day. If you came here from Lisa's Blog then you are in the right place. If not start at the beginning at Jamie's blog for all the wonderful projects lined up for you today.
 Happy Saturday!
I know I don't normally post on the weekends, but today I have some FUN for you!  I am participating in a blog hop with other crafters around the bloggy world that features Mother's Day projects. How fun is that?
Of course I created a card for the occasion.  It's a really happy green sparklee card to celebrate that special Mama in your life!
I used one of my mini cupcake liners to create this little embellishment.  I just flattened it out and scrunched it in the center and then topped it with a white vintage button tied up with green and white baker's twine and a little 'love' tag stamped with a Kim Hughes stamp.
I also added some gathered crepe paper to the top with a little line of pom-poms.  To gather the crepe paper, I used my sewing machine to run some gathering stitches and then tied a knot on one end and then pulled the other end to gather it.  I gathered it until I got just the right length for my card and then glued it on to the card front.
I used a digi stamp from The Cutting Cafe' called Mom Word Block and I turned it to the shade of green I needed by using my Printmaster program.  I love this shade of green...don't you? :)
I'm the final stop on the blog hop.  If you didn't see all the projects, go back to the top of this post and just follow along and see all the wonderful creations and hopefully at the end you'll have lots of Mommy Day ideas to create something to make your Mama SMILE!

I have a little give away today for all your hopping efforts. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and you will be entered to win enough supplies to create your very own greeting card. I will draw a winner one week from today.
Thanks for visiting me and please do come again real soon! Until then, have a lovely day! HUGS! :)

I like what you did with the cupcake liner! Is that a purchased cupcake liner or a Cricut cut? Either way it's very cute! Thanks for sharing!

Very creative of you to use a cup cake paper and crepe paper for the embellies, but then you're always very creative with your new-use ideas! I'll certainly file that away for a future project! Love all the green. Great card girlie!
