On Tuesday, my mom called me at 7:20 am and was very stressed. My sister was supposed to pick her and my dad up at 7:00 am and drive them to the hospital for her surgery (minor). So I talked to her until my sister showed up (after 7:30). I was a little nervous now about her surgery, because she was feeling so stressed, that I decided to focus on her and make a Mother's Day card. By the time she called to tell me she was home and doing well, I had finished the card.
For the background, I embossed (clear) the HA's stamp Lotus pattern and used distress inks to watercolour it. I stamped the same inks on some neenah cardstock , misted them with a bit of glimmer mist and with black ink, stamped the HA's butterfly. I cut them out with the matching die. I used the butterfly dies to cut the windows in the card. The sentiment/label is all Hero Arts. The twine is from Doodle Twine.
I know Mother's Day isn't until May 13th, but it felt good making the card for her, and it helped me keep from worrying too much.
