Happy Mother's Day Card

Good morning Everyone,

Its Friday here - and we are all in TGIF mode! How about you? Well, our friday plans are including a lot of birthday parties, spring cleaning and loads of laundry... (i know i know... is sooo exciting the life I lead!)

Last night, my DH and I had a movie night and he finally watched Twillight with me (I already had watched it - but have been wanting to see it with him) - it was fun to watch a movie together and chillax a little after the insane week that we have been having! Since I had already watched the movie, I worked on a card while we watched (that still counts as a date night right? lol!) and worked on this beautiful Verve Sketch from Julee. I am simply in love with the Fresh Flowers stamp set from Taylored Expressions- and had to play along using this beautiful set.

I especially love love love the window stamp in this set. I cut with an exacto knife each of the window panels out and then covered it with vellum afterwards. I love the translucent feeling of it - espcially that you can kinda see what is behind the windows when the windows are closed - it is such a labor of love process :)

here is a better shot of what the windows look like open -

Ohmyword, this is fabulous! I love your little window and row of flowers! Just awesome, Sankari!

Maria said...

Wow, I love that window. . .so creative and your colors are so vibrant . . such a beauty!! Your cards are always so unique and so Sankari! I think I could spot your cards immediately if they were mixed in with other people's cards!!

Hey did your husband like Twilight. To be honest, I watched the movie before I read the book, I really liked the movie. I watched it the second time and I didn't like the movie as much as the book! It was a very different perspective after I read the book. Did you read the book? I went through all 4 Twilight books in 2 weeks. I'm now on the new Stepanie Meyer book called the "Host". . .it's about aliens rather than vampires. It has a similar theme as Twilight it seems.

Gorgeous card! I love the window and the flower you placed inside! Your window shades are so cute! Love all the dimensions you added!

Oh my goodness Sankari, you have outdone yourself! The windows are the BOMB. Holy smokes. I would have amputated one of my fingers if I tried that (you know I have an issue with cutting!). The transparency of the window is stunning, too.

Awesome times 3!!

I love the vellum in the windows!!! Love the flowers, the colors, the detail is great. I have a SU set called Window Dressing that has a nice window, and it's one of my favorite sets to play with!
