Moms are The Best!

I think I appreciate my mom better now that I am a mom myself.

mmm.. No, I know this is a fact and not just one of this ‘I think…” statements! Love you Mom! {{{hugs}}

Mom’s day is here. And I thought it is this Sunday :) Thankfully I googled this before I sent of this card to Amma (Mum in tamil)

P1010007 - Copy (23)

This is Keerthana, my little girl’s ride :) I thought it would be fitting to prop this on her scooter :)

P1010008 - Copy (23)

The background paper is fro Hallmark ;)

P1010016 - Copy (18)

What went in!

  • The Circle flower stamp is from Birds Cards.  Bird has some very nice such stamps now & very cute gingham papers I am itching to try.
  • Sentiment is computer generated. I put the flower digi stamp & the sentiment together using word.
  • Flowers coloured with regular Nataraj colour pencils :) And my favourite sparkle – Fevicryl shimmer 3-D.
  • The green paper was embossed using the Swiss dots Cuttle bug folder.  Just the folder :) I put the paper in & press the folder down using the handle of a scissors.

Thanks for looking :)

PS: I find it pretty daunting to use layouts from challenges. Do you?
PPS: Do these photo paper finish effect of the cards (the white border) look good or bad?


  1. Very nice card! Love the glitter effect on the flowers... I'e also been saving that stamp because it is sooo pretty and adds a simple elegance to the card. Love the way you added the sentiment to it. Sure mom will appreciate it very much.

    Funny thing how our kids make us appreciate our moms so much! I am with you on this..
