This one is for the Moms out there

Hopefully we all have at least one person in our lives that inspires us.  Well I have many...look around...you are likely one of them (love you crafters!).  Meanwhile, there is one woman in my life who simply amazes me.  That woman is my mother!  As time moves forward and I am a mother myself, I love and appreciate what she does for me now and did for me as a child every day.  I am blessed to have her in my life. Which is why it is easy to dedicate this week's Cut-it-up Challenge to her.

This week we are celebrating Mother's Day on Cut-it-Up!  This is your chance to tell all your Mother's out there just how much you love them.  And what better way to do that than through a handmade card or gift?! So let's get right to it shall we.  Here is my card for this challenge that I dedicate to my Mom.


I made this card using Papertrey Ink's You are die.  I double layered it with DP and black to add a shadow effect.  Underneath I made it a shaker and the layer between is velum.  I stamped my sentiment and filled with sequins.  The ribbon is from Simon Says Stamp.  And then I added the flowers.  I love the contrast of the soft colors to the black and white.  Now pop on over to the CIU blog to check out the challenge rules and the other DT projects which are amazing!



Oh and the prizes- they are:  $20 gift certificate to Cute as a Button and a $10 gift certificate to 3 Girl Jam!

Thanks for stopping and enjoy honoring your Moms!

What a fantastic design! I agree about the ribbon; it really adds a punch.

You are so lucky to have such a great mom in your life, and with her example, I'm sure you're a great mom yourself!!
