One of my resolutions for this year was to send a birthday card for everyone's (family, friends) birthday. A couple of weeks ago I decided to add onto that resolution (which is going okay, by the way - although I have had to keep going back to my previously made cards rather than continuously making brand new cards) - I want to send all the mothers in my life a mother's day card. My mom, my gramma, my sister, my aunts, my mother-in-law, my sisters-in-law, friends who are moms. . .the list goes on. I never realized how many moms are in my life. We'll see if I do well on this if I decide to do the same for father's day. :)

I got a head start on the many cards I will need this weekend. This is my favorite one. For Christmas I got this card making kit from an Aunt. It had die cuts of different shapes, cards, and envelopes. It really wasn't my style, not that I didn't appreciate it because she thought about how I like to make cards and that's why the gift, it just wasn't my style. BUT, there was this awesome die cut dress in it. The dress is probably the only thing I liked in the card kit, but after this card I think it's worth it.


supplies: dress (card kit - don't have the name of it); stamps: sentiment (My Sentiments Exactly!), line stamp (fiskar's); red paper (TAC), designer paper (Me and My Big Ideas), vellum; glitter brads; ink Brilliance Graphite Black, Versamagic Jumbo Java
