Challenge #4 Anything Mother's Day & Use Faux Stitching

Challenge #4 Anything Mother's Day & Use Faux Stitching Giveaway is happening at Scrapbookaholic by Abby and our sponsor is Sakura ( I hope you participate in the challenge that is going on and make sure to link your Mothers Day project in to Scrapbookaholic by Abby. The giveaway is: Set of 6 pens Gelly Roll Glitter and set of 2 white Gelly Roll how fabulous is that.

Here is a card I made, though it is not a "Mother's Day" Card per say, it was made as I was thinking of my mom. I so "Cherished" her, she has been deceased now for almost 15 years, this is so hard to believe, so my card is for my mom that I "Cherished". Happy Mothers Day Mom, you were so loved.

I did my faux stitching using one of the Sakura White pens on both the front of my card and on the inside pocket that I created. My tag is from the KaiserCraft Chanteuse Marcato Die Cut sheet that I got from Paper Patch Crafts. The paper that I used for my card and the butterflies are from Bo Bunny Gabrielle 6x6paper pad. Love paper pads, they are perfect for card making. To give those awesome butterflies that I fussy cut some glam I used my Frosted Lace Stickles and rubbed it on to the top of the wings.

Here is the pocket I was talking about that I placed in the inside of my card. When you make your pocket just glue the sides and bottom and leave the top open for the placement.

I would love to share with those of you that didn't realize I had been published in the Spring Issue 2011 of Scrapbooking and Beyond magazine. This was very exciting for me. The most excitng thing was that the layout that was featured was of my mom and brother when he was an infant.

As I shared my mom was "Cherished" by me and I always want to honor and remember her as positively as I can. Happy Mothers Day to those that are a mom, grandma, for every lady that is involved in someone elses life.
