Happy Mother's Day! PP294, CTS171





With Mother's Day and my mother's 91st birthday happening the same weekend we had reason to celebrate for sure! Here's our four generation picture from our family gathering. Amazing how hard it is to get four people to cooperate in the same photo!






I love the soft colors Jaydee chose for this week's challenge at the Paper Players!  I used a stencil to shade in a background area and then stamped the flowers from Number of Years over it.







                                       Another wonderful sketch this week from Cas(e) this Sketch!

This is really, really pretty, Linda! I love your layered stamping, and I still have the sentiment stamp you used. It's one of my favorites for Mother's Day. What an awesome family photo too, one to be treasured!

I've saved this for a future card idea! I too like the simplicity of it. The stitching along the card looks so nice. What dies did you use forthe stitching?
