Happy Mother's Day!!!

I big wide WONDERFUL hug to all you moms out there! If you aren't a mom, HUG a mom!! They totally deserve it today!!

As promised, here is another hinged card (see tutorial HERE). As you can see, I also used Patty Bennett's wonderful watercolor rose technique again as well! I made this card for my own dear mother. She is truly one of the most selfless people I have ever met. Truly a "one-of-a-kind" mother. She loves roses, too, so I know she will like this card (oh yeah . . . and the hand-dipped chocolates I bought for her as well!)!

Hope y'all have a wonderful day!! Hugs and smiles to all!!

What an adorable idea for a card and my new favorite stamp Fifth Ave Floral with the new technique I learned by looking at Wendy's blog. Thank you so much Wendy for being sooooooooo smart and talented.

God Bless,

if we don't have shimmery white for the watercolor technique, what other cardstock could we use?

Any cardstock will work just fine. The shimmery white just looks purdee!! (Who doesn't love a little sparkle, right??)
