I Made This For You Mom!!

 It will soon be May and Mother's day is May 9th this year in Canada and the U.S. so it's time to get busy and make a Mother's day card for your Mom, Mom-in-law, a close friend or your Daughter just because she's a great Mom. I have made cards for all of the above, everyone appreciates a handmade card.  Since this is Shopping Our Stash I dug deep in my stash, way back to 1998 and 2008. 

The basket is from Limited Edition stamps Long Island NY dated 2008, It is a large wood mount with the basket on one side and the handles on the end, I stamped it with versafine sepia ink, cut it out and created shadows with #31 copic marker. The pansy stamp is from Stampendous also a wood mount stamp dated 1998, it was stamped with memento tuxedo black and coloured with copics, then fussy cut to fit  the basket. 

Close up of the pansies, odd thing the one bud is not light purple it is the same colour as the other one, must be the way the light shone one it and of course both buds are free standing. 

The third wood mount stamp I used is also from Limited Edition and is double sided with a different sentiment on the other side, it reads A Basket Full of Friendship. The pansies are attached so they go over the edge of the basket. 

Since we are honouring Mothers with our challenge here is a picture of my Mom and I taken many, many years ago.

Thanks for visiting my blog today and head over to the Main Blog and check out the rest of the design team projects, then get your mojo working and make a card for the challenge.

Wow, Barbara! This is amazing! I thought the pansies were going to turn out to be a purchased die cut, they look fabulous! Glorious card.
