Hello and thank you for visiting today!!!

 I want to show you a card I made for Mother's Day! It may seem far off  but not if you are a busy crafter eh? This card has a lot of dimension so I plan to sell it locally.

I used Cindy Loo Cricut Cartridge for every layer except the heart doily.. The images used are "Doily"on page 68, I used the Shadow for the bottom 2 layers, size 5" and  4 3/4", then used the "Doily" for the intricate cut @ size 4 1/2"

On the inside I tore the edges  on both corners opposite from each other and tucked cheese cloth underneath , then rolled the paper back using my fingers.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts , I love these colors together!... and the hat pin is from Christina over @ Flowers Ribbons and Pearls.  I also tucked in a few spellbinder leaves and curled the stems of the flowers.

I used a bow and feathers to finish it off which gives this card the soft look which makes it perfect for Mother's Day.

Speaking of Doily's,  last week I went to a restaurant in my home town and started talking crafts with the waitress, I happened to mention the doily's used under the Gravy dish , they were so small and pretty.. I braved it and asked is there any way I could get some when the next order goes in, then I said unless of course the manager wouldn't agree...little did I know she was the manager and she was more than happy to oblige me! I got a call this evening and it took me a whole 2 min's to get there. I paid 14.50 for them and have enough to last me a life time!  So be brave.

Have a AWWWE - SOME Day!!!
