Manchester for Mother's Day

As promised! Another project featuring Manchester DSP . . . this time a Mother's Day card. And yes, I should have posted it BEFORE Mother's Day so it could have inspired you but then my Mom might have seen it before she got it in the mail. You wouldn't have wanted to spoil her surprise, now would you? LOL!

Well . . . I LOVE this card! As soon as I saw folks using the Big Shot Pennant Die to make crisscross pocket cards, I KNEW I had to have that die! Sadly, this is the first one I've made but it will NOT be the last! Whatcha think?

Don't forget the blog candy! See HERE for detail on how to be entered into the drawing!

Great job Comeka! I love the soft colors and the use of the pennant die.

That's beautiful, Comeka! Darn! Another reason to buy that pennant die. Thanks for being my enabler. ;-) I love those papers on that pocket card.

I also posted my mother's day cards after the fact because it would have ruined the surprise! I love what you did. The Manchester paper is great!

Very soft and pretty and yet with a different accent I bet it would work for Father's day as well.

thanks for sharing - Jean

I really like this one! I don't have this DSP yet, maybe I should get some!

The paper is very nice and and looks so pretty as a mother's day card. I've been using all my manchester DSP on manly things but will need to try it on something girly

Gah-LOVE! Y'all keep pushing me to invest in the Bigz XL dies and it's getting harder & harder to resist (eep-don't tell DH, lol). This is stunningly elegant. I really like the look of the Manchester paper on a "ladies" card-it works beautifully!

I never would have thought to use the Manchester paper for a woman's card but it certainly works....and beautifully, I might add!!! Your Mom is a very lucky lady!!!
