Mother's Day Card!!

I finally got to sit down last week because I needed a few Mother's Day cards. This is what I came up with. I really like the Sweet Summer stamp set and hope it makes it into the big cattie.
I cut the flowers out and popped them with a dimensional. I like the look!! I have seen similar cards, but like my take on it.

Card Recipe:
Cardstock: Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White
Inks: Stazon Black, Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz, Summer Sun
Stamp Sets: Sweet Summer
Embellishments: Tulip frame embossing folder, pearls

Sorry I have been missing in action for so long. Dealing with issue with my 17 year old daughter who is now known as "THE BEAST". lol I haven't created for a while but I did take pics of my craft room since it has been clean for a while now. I thought I would show you where I do my creating when I am able to get in there!!

This first pic is as you walk in the door! Of course, my craft mate had to be in the pic. That is my dog Akkita!! This is where I have my punches and my craft totes.

This pic shows where I have my 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock, all my large Sizzix dies, my envelopes, my non-Stampin' Up! designer paper. On the Ikea shelf are all my tools I need. In the large red totes are my finish projects, in the drawer units are all my tools, tapes, glues, my ribbon storage is in the white Making Memories ribbon holders. On top of the unit is my non-Stampin' Up! 12 x 12 cardstock, my idea books and print outs. My main desk area and on the wall is where I store my embellishments. You gotta love Ikea!!!

In this pic is the other side of my desk. In the white cabinets are all my stamps.

And last, but not least...are my paper racks for all my Stampin' Up! 12 x 12 cardstock and my DSP.

Not a large room, but it has everything I need and I love being able to leave it a mess and close the door when I am in the middle of a project. Hope you enjoyed the photos!!!
