Today & Every Day

I went on a CAS card-making spree this weekend, and while I was at it made four Mother's Day cards to send out this week (how did Mother's Day sneak up on me??).

I kept the design very simple, using the Avery Elle Celebrate stamp set.  The frames are all stamped on Ultra Smooth White cardstock using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ dye ink in Bamboo Leaves; the sentiments themselves all use Memento™ dye ink in Rose Bud. I added dots around each of them with my Spectrum Noir markers.

The two cards above have patterned paper from Echo Park's Bundle of Joy (Boy) Dots & Stripes collection.

These two cards feature paper from Echo Park's Sweet Girl collection.  Each design is really similar - I just moved the small piece and placement of the sentiment around a bit.

They're all CAS, but it's the thought that counts, right?  When you have four mothers to send cards to, plus a little prince's birthday party this weekend, PLUS a trip to plan for...simple is probably best!
