inspired by mom.

you inspire me, mom


I made one for dad the other day.  So, it was only fair to make one for mom too, for my first Saturday Creations post of the month with Precious Remembrance.

you inspire me, mom

I stamped the square heart image 4 times (from the new "mom & dad" set), and just eyeballed the distance between each.... such a lazy stamper.  It you want yours to look perfect, just use a ruler ;)

The "mom" banner is a bit of a cheat, too.  I stamped the "mom" rectangle, cut 2 fish-tail-banner edges, and just tucked them underneath.

The extra "you inspire me" sentiment is from my all-time favorite Precious Remembrance set: Positive Thoughts.

Oh, and the glitter?  it's shiny.  I flicked on some watered-down white glue and then sprinkled on the gold glitter.  (Tip:  I got my glitter on, and then stamped the "you inspire me" sentiment.  Because some glitter found it's way right under the quad of hearts, I stamped it left-justified, instead of centered like I was originally planning. You gotta just roll with the punches.  I like it better this way.)

Thanks for stopping by!

ps, mommy - if you're reading, just forget all about this card for a bit.... you'll see it again in May :)
