Mother's Day

Hi there!
Hope you're having a great week-end.  I have a few cards to share with you today.  This card was made with a few challenges in mind and the inspiration came from the challenge at StampTV to incorporate an item that you would normally throw in the trash.  So, on Monday whilst doing the laundry I kept my used dryer sheets  (I did iron them first to get rid of the wrinkles....  wish it was that easy to get rid of mine ..... ;) 

I used the following products (apart from dryer sheets and newspaper)
A beautiful life stamp by Melanie Muenchinger (Gina K Designs)
Friends 'til the End flower die (Gina K Designs)
Tea Rose small (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Tiny fanciful flourish (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Suede Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels)
Gold Color Shine (Heidi Swapp)

Entering the following challenges:
StampTV MIUM Challenge - Let's get Trashy
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Show us your metal
Mod Squad Challenge - Mother's Day
Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge - Mother's Day theme
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes

Who would've thought that doing laundry would be inspirational!

Thanks for looking.

  10. Mother’s Day is a really special day for me. Last year we celebrated this day quite uniquely. One of my friends is an event planner and organized a social event at venues in Los Angeles. We did charity shows for needy mothers. It was an amazing feeling!
