Happy Mother's Day

I really love the new Postmarks set from PTI! I was playing around and came up with this card.

Photobucket

I stamped the postage stamp image with Fresh Snow ink onto Kraft cardstock. The label comes from Label Basics, which I cut out by hand. I stamped another postage stamp image onto a die cut stamp, using Berry Sorbet ink. I may go back and add a couple buttons or gems, it seems to need a little something more.

I've been busy working this weekend making some Easter cards for a friend, and designing and preparing some cards for a card-making evening with some friends on Tuesday. I'll share those soon.

Hope you had a great weekend!
Melissa
