These were the cards I made for our mothers this year.  I made the rose bouquets last year, but did not order the jumbo crepe paper in time to make the jumbo ones this year.  Also, because I went out and bought my mother new carbon monoxide detectors earlier this year and would not let her or Dad pay me back for them - they demanded that I not get them anything further for Mothers/Fathers day (they are not big on gifts).  Still, they got flowers and a card...

This one is for Jim's mom - she likes pinks and purples more...



and this one for my mom...



I made A2 sized cards, and used water colour paper, and washes of metallic water colour paint to make the pastel skies, and a cherry blossom/branch die to cut the flower detail out.  I added some more pics and details in the links above for each card.

I really do have to try to order that jumbo crepe to make the roses for next year.  I know my mom would get a kick out of them.

Thank you - they seemed to like them.  But then again, they are mothers - hopefully they wouldn't squish my ego too much!

Oh wait - yes, they do... but namely about things like my weight and my housekeeping - never about the crafts Smiley
