Saying hello

Hey there!  Sorry I haven't posted a card in a while.  We have been passing around a stomach virus at my house.  Hopefully I will get to craft tomorrow!  I am off to a Pre-K program tonight.  My little guy is going to be a kindergartner.  I hope I don't cry.  Toodles!

Mother's Day - Card Pattern 62

I FINALLY made a Mother's Day card - which means my Mother-in-law will get hers in the mail on Monday.  Luckily, she is a very laid-back, forgiving MIL!  I used Card Patterns sketch 62.  Here it is...
Not sure if you can tell in the photo I distressed the edges of the circles and pp.  I hand stitched around the edges - I really like the result.

Cardstock: PTI and SU old olive
Pattern Paper: SU sweet pea
Ink: Memento brown and Copic markers
Misc: SU felt flowers, CM CCS (old school), distressor, needle and thread

Cardstock: SU Baja Breeze and Bayou Blue, Kraft
Pattern Paper: DCWV
