Mother's Day in September?

Well, not exactly. I made these cards last Spring and have never shared them.

These two cards were made to be sold at the thrift store where I volunteer. The store had actually given me a few pre-made card blanks, and these were two of them.

I added the Spellbinders oval, the little butterflies (Recollections punch) and the little berry branch (unbranded). The letters for "MOM" are from an unbranded set, as well. I put Nuvo Drops on all the tips of the branches.

Here's how the cards open up. I left the blank space for the giver to write a note and sign their name, without it being seen when the card is closed.

I find that making cards for the thrift store to sell is a lot of fun. I'm not so invested in personalizing them, so they come together more quickly. I also feel more relaxed in picking out the embellishments. I recommend finding somewhere you can donate a few cards for a good cause.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Two great cards for "MOM". I'm sure they'll sell quickly.

I love how these unfold. The lacy ovals are perfect for Mother's Day cards.Pretty colors too. I'm sure some Mom really enjoyed getting these.

Wonderful Mother's Day cards, Cheryl! I'm happy for you that you have somewhere to donate your cards. I give some to our church, but they don't go very fast. :( I should check around for somewhere else.

How awesome these Mothers Day Cards are - it is so neat that you have a source to "sell" your stamps. I have been thinking about starting a card ministry at church.
