Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Untraditional Mother's Day Blog Hop, which begins at the Sparkle N Sprinkle Home Blog here.

Our Mother's Day inspired hop is untraditional because we're displaying cards which honor special women in our lives, whether they are Moms or not. We hope you will enjoy these feminine cards, and perhaps create something special for the dear women who regularly and meaningfully touch your life.  


For my hop card I created a bouquet of flowers for one of the older women at church that doesn't have any children of her own but has been a mother to many children in Sunday school classes over the years (including my two girls).  I used my new Blossoms stamp set and started by embossing a bunch of the Daisy's with Dandy Dandelion embossing powder  and cutting them out with the new Spellbinders Blossoms 3 Dies (by the way are in the store now!) The flowers are all attached to a card that pulls out of the pot.  You can find all the details of the card here.

Thanks for leaving a comment before hopping  over to Joan's blog for more fun & inspiration. Good Luck in the drawing:)


Happy Stamping,
Jill

Just love the idea of a bouquet of flowers that can be pulled out of the container. In real life they do need to be watered.
