This week I have been really sick with the nasty cold that is going around. But I found time to get to my craft room and make some mother's day cards. I badly needed some inspiration in my foggy sick state. So the cards I created were inspired by other talented crafters.
I made this card for my mother-in-law...
I was inspired by this card by Rochelle Washington. I just love those embossed chevrons on her background! Since I didn't have that kind of embossing folder, I die cut my chevrons first and then embossed them with tiny dots.On the inside I used one of my favourite sentiments..."you are a blessing to me."
When I showed the card to my hubby, he said "cool chevrons"! I couldn't believe he even knew that word! Seems we brainwash our loved ones into scrapbooking even more than we realise!!
I decided to link up with Simon Says Stamp and Show for their "inspired by" challenge this week.
Happy Mother's Day to all those mothers out there and I hope my mother-in-law likes her card!
