CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE #65

The Vertigo I have had this week is improving. Yeah. For that I am very grateful. It is not fun and I think mine was a light case.

I just love CAS (Clean And Simple). Monday's Challenge is to make a May Flowers card or a Mother's Day card/project. I still need to make cards for my Mom and my MIL. So I chose to make a Mother's Day card.

My MIL is very special. She treats me like a princess everytime I visit. She makes me tamales even in 100 degree plus weather. She is surviving the loss of her husband since December. She speaks Spanish so I computer generated the sentiment in Spanish.

This stamp is a dollar stamp from GStudio from Joanns. The sentiment it came with says "A Mother is the Heart of the Home". I just had to get it. I love this cute house. I cut the top of my card for my house shape and rounded my corners. Easy peezy!

RECIPE:
Stamps: A Mother Is The Heart Of The Home (G Studio $ stamps JoAnns), Computer generated sentiment Kristen ITC font Microsoft Word)
Paper: Wassau Exact Digital Hyper White (from Paper Zone), Small Orange Dots DP (Recollections from Michaels)
Ink: Printer, Momento Tuxedo Black (from Clear Dollar Stamps), Bic Mark-It Markers, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain
Accessories: Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain, Scallop Trim Border Punch (Stampin Up), Dimensional
Techniques: Sponging, Computer
