Mother's Day Double Take and another sneak peek...

Happy Monday, everyone!

Hope you had a terrific weekend, and a good start to this week, too.  I had the entire weekend to myself.  I spent lots of time in craft room, and a little time cleaning!  (my usual craft to cleaning ratio, LOL)  In addition to completing my weekly Documented Life Project page, I made these two cards for our (mine and DH's) wonderful mothers:


I saw a similar card on Pinterest (here's the pin), and since I hadn't fired up my Silver Bullet Professional cutter in a couple of weeks, I decided to try my own version.  I used a flower pot svg file from this blog, to cut the flower pot, which includes a easel back for display purposes.  The flowers were from a file in my collection.    The designer paper is from a Crate Paper stack, and the cardstock is from Recollections. 

Here's a shot of the two cards together:

I am happily entering these cards in the following challenges:
Hiding in My Craft Room HIMCR05NSD  - National Scrapbook Day Dies challenge
Shopping Our Stash SOS #199 Opposites Day (Look, Mom, no ink!)

The other project I spent a lot of time with is the one for which I shared a sneak peek in my last post.  Because it really needs a post to itself, I am going to give you one more sneaky shot:

With just a few finishing touches,  I'll be ready to share the completed project. 

Thanks for stopping by, and have a fabulous day!
