Happy Mother's Day

 Happy Mother's Day!  I hope that many of you are being spoiled rotten today by your husbands and kiddos.  It is such a great thing to have a mom and be a mom and wonderful that there is a holiday to celebrate motherhood.  I was inspired to create a couple of simple Mother's Day cards with Simple Stories BRAND NEW Summer Fresh Collection.  This has to be my favorite collection to date since you cannot go wrong with red gingham, denim and burlap - oh my, what an amazing summer collection.
The burlap paper in this collection looks like it is the real thing and adds a wonderful element of texture and dimension to a project.  This is actually one of the 4 x 6 journaling elements that I trimmed down to fit on my 4.5 x 6 inch card.  Added a 6 x 6 pattered paper as the mat to the journal card.
I added some of the Expressions Cardstock Stickers for the sentiment and then used some foam tape to add a little lift to the cardstock sticker pocket.  The flowers and gems are from Petaloo.

For this card I used the 6 x 6 patterned paper version of the Summer Fresh Designer Cardstock. It makes a fun and simple background for the design.
This cardstock sticker wagon is about as cute as can be and needed to be a focal point for my card.  I added some of the Expressions Cardstock Stickers for the sentiment.  MomCard1b
Wrapped a little packaging twine around the card and added a Petaloo flower.
