Mother’s Day Blog Hop, Stampin’ Up!

Hi Stampers and crafters 🙂

Hope you are having a wonderful day:) Thanks for stopping by our Stamp It Group Mother’s Day blog hop! I am certain you will find a ton of inspiration for all of your card needs, but especially for the hardest working of all…..the Mom!

Being a mom is the single most wonderfully exhausting tasks  I have ever undertaken…….and I do not mean once I had my son. I was a mom long before that. To my brothers growing up, to my forever first fur baby Tasha, to my beautiful nieces and nephews. To friends who needed a hand, to new coworkers who needed a wing to learn under. Being a mom means so many different things to everyone. I want to honor those who are brave and selfless, kind and compassionate, and never stop giving even when they think they’ve nothing left to offer.

I salute you and I hope you will give a hug or a smile. Give a tissue or a cough drop. Give a little bit of you into this weary world and all those little bits will make your heart sing!

On to this oh so sweet card! I was thinking and choosing, could just not make up my mind on what card to create, and then this fell in my lap. I was perusing the current catalog and marking sets that will be retiring soon…..then the birds hit me…….in the forehead …….with their beaks 😉 I just love this set and wanted to show some birdie love (Sophie ) before it flies away.

I used the Stampin Blends to color the birds in and sponged some all over sky with Soft Sky, which is also sadly retiring. I used Bermuda Bay because I just LOVE that color. I added the sentiment from the Cozy Cottage Host stamp set which will be gone soon too.

I added a bit of Burlap Ribbon for some extra visual interest and some drops of Liquid Glue as “rain” drops.

I did add in a bit of the new and SUPER FAB Share What You Love DSP. You will be able to order this very soon….May 1st in fact! I also added a bit of the reverse inside and finished it with Happy Mother’s Day from Teeny Tiny Wishes. Guess I was having a goodbye/retirement card as well…..must’ve been that kinda day.
