Bright Mother's Day cards

I have been doing some more spring cleaning and de-hoarding my supplies. I have a small craft area in our bedroom and it feels good to get rid of stuff by making something from once loved products. It feels even better when I find stuff that hasn't been used. Almost 100% of my projects here on my blog use at least one thing I designed (stamps, dies, bling). I am, however, also a fan of other similar products, but just never get around to using them. If only there were more hours in a day! :)

Most of them were given to me as gifts (I have very generous friends and family :)). I hope to be able to use these neglected supplies and show my cards in future posts. I started yesterday with the beautiful Spring Bouquet stamp from Flourishes. For my card below, I used Papertrey Ink's Rosie Posie stamps. The sentiments is Waltzing Mouse's Blessed By You set. I love the sentiments in this set. The papers were my favorite papers last year, Crate Paper's Emma's Shoppe, and these are the last remaining sheets from that collection. The pearls are by Want2Scrap. I'm entering this to Flourishes Lovely in Lace Challenge.
Here's CARD #2 that is super simple. It's perfect for the CAS-ual Friday challenge, which is being sponsored by The Craft's Meow. And the flowers are perfect for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge as well. I accented the flower with a border die cut using Spellbinders Edgeabilities dies. The sentiments is from The Craft's Meow's Mother and Father set.
See you all back here on Sunday for the NinaB Designs' Blog Hop with lots of inspiration and prizes! Have a great weekend!
