Mother's Day card made using the Teresa Collins Baby Boutique and my Imagine

Hello, friends!

Thank you all for the sweet comments about our Ustream! You guys are the absolute best blog followers around!

Don't forget about my cartridge giveaway of Martha Stewart All Occasions Cake Art and Rock Princess. I will be drawing a winner tomorrow, so check it out before you miss out! HELLO THURSDAY CARTRIDGE GIVEAWAY

Today's project is made using the Teresa Collins Baby Boutique Imagine cartridge and my Imagine. The font that is included with this fabulous cartridge is extremely elegant. I just love it!

I paper is printed out using the imagine.
I cut the letter and oval shape out at 4 1/2".
The 'mother' stamp is from Papertrey Ink.
The ribbon is from SU! I used a cuttlebug folder called 'Madison' for texture.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I will see you all back here tomorrow.

So Elegant. Really beautiful. I needed the inspiration for a very special card for my MIL. She has always been so unlike those MIL stories you hear, more like a mother to me particularly since my mother passed away 8 years ago. Sadly last week we got the news that she herself has terminal cancer and only has 3-6 months left. We did our best to make Easter special with all 5 kids there and even 4 of the great grandkids. Now we must make Mothers Day be the best one ever.
