Mother's Day project

This is my second post for today.  For my TSG and SFYTT post see here.

I was busy today!  I did my spinning, had a visit with my mom and then I went to play in my craft room for a bit.  Hubby and my oldest are out of town this weekend and my youngest slept in then went off with her friends so I had most of the day to myself.

I played along with a lot of challenges so this is a photo heavy post!  First of all the challenge at Mark's Finest Papers is Mother's Day and I made a notecard set for my mom.  This month the Glue Dots® designers were asked to make Mother's Day projects so this was a perfect time to get to work on it! 

For my project I used the new Curio Papers and Stickers from Carina Gardner, which are available at Jessica Sprague.  



I printed out 4 different papers and some of the stickers and went to work.  I made 4 cards and unfortunately at this time in her life my mom is needing more sympathy cards than before so I included  a couple of them.  The Vintage Seam Binding is available at Ribbon Carousel.  All the stamps are from Unity.  



Here are the four cards all together.  For all the cards I used a few Glue Dots® to hold the papers in place before sewing.  Each card also has an item popped up on Pop Up Glue Dots® for some dimension.  Finally, to hold the bits of floss and twine in place I have used some Mini Glue Dots®.


For this first card I used a sketch from The Sweet Stop:


The sentiment on this one is from the March 2012 KOTM (from head to soul)


I used the sketch from Sketchbook Saturday:

The stamp is from the Life Becoming set:


Next I used the JUGS challenge:

The sentiment is from the Jan 2011 KOTM to the moon and back.

Finally, I used the Unity KOTM sketch challenge:

The sentiment is from the May KOTM Think Happy Thoughts.  This one is also for the 365 Cards challenge - So Sorry.
