Flowers for Mum and a big kiss

This cutie pie is just about to throw her mom a big kiss! The  Stampman Challenges blog has a Mothers Day or Floral challenge (#18), so I put them both together. This little cutie from Altered Artifacts was my starting point and I gussied her up with rhinestones, Stickles,  a striped ribbon sash and a  stamped rose.  Her frame is entwinned with organza ribbon, has a delicate thread border and the corners are jewelry gold findings (LOL) that I filled with stamped rose centers  with a Stickles dotted brad. The background script paper is edged with ink . I stamped "Happy Mothers day" over the image and detailed it with some markers and sparkles and my little sweetie was all done. Hope you enjoyed todays creation, Gerri.

"Happy Mother's Day"


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog, Gerrie. When I came back to post this, I found a gazillion more pieces of your art and I LOVED every single thing you posted (including the photos from the garden show,LOL)... I love your style and find so much inspiration in how you use embellishments!!! Thanks for so generously sharing your creativity!!!

  2. This is adorable! I love this little cutie and you dressed her up so fine with glitter and rhinestones. Love that border trim too. Fab card.

  3. Terrific mothers day card Gerri. Annette x

  4. Oh Gerri,
    This is just tooo precious!!! How are you doing? Good, I hope! I have been really busy getting some custom orders made--so fun! but doesn't leave alot of time for blogging...It's always so good to hear from you, my art sister!

    And that was so interesting about "working moms." Yes, it probably was unusual at the time, but I bet it also taught you an awful lot too...that sure is a testament to the mother/child bond, isn't it?

    Sending (((hugs))) from me,

  5. That happens to be one of my favorite images--what an adorable card!
