Happy Mother's Day!

I hope you were all able to enjoy the beautiful day yesterday with your moms or children or grandchildren! We had a get-together at our house yesterday for my in-laws and just grilled out. It was supposed to be cold and windy yesterday, but turned out that it wasn't too bad after all, about 66* and we were able to hang out outside for a bit! Unfortunately since I was busy hosting the party, I didn't manage to get ANY photos yesterday!

I don't have a lot of scrappy things to share with you yet, so I thought I'd show you the 2 cards I made over the weekend for my husband's grandma and his mom.Supplies:
Yellow cardstock
Papers: Dream Street, Forever Family line
Chipboard flower: Basic Grey
Special chipboard: K&Co.
Pearls: Melissa Frances
Rub on saying: Melissa Frances
Other: twine and machine stitching


Supplies:
Papers: Dream Street, Forever Family
Rub ons (butterfly and saying), pearls: Melissa Frances
Pin: Maya Road
Other: Lace by Wrights and machine stitching, lace punch by Fiskars.

Glad you had a nice time, but I totally hear ya on the lack of photos when you are the hostess with the mostest. The only way I nabbed my photos (and they weren't even that good) was because we went out to eat. Lovely cards...especially love the second one.
