Mother's Day Set

Can you believe its Monday already? This last weekend flew by, Saturday I spent the day running errands and trying to get things done and yesterday DH and I took the kids to the zoo. It was a beautiful sunny day in the 70's and most of the animals were out and about because of the nice weather so it was fun. The projects I have for today are ones I made up for Mother's Day but could be used for any time I suppose.

The card was made using my largest circle scallop Nestabilities die, I was inspired by a card I saw in the SCS gallery by craftycaro I thought her circular rose card was beautiful. For mine I stamped the rose twice and took one image and cut and embossed with a circle nestie and the other I cut out the first row of petals and pop dotted on top of the other image. For added dimension I popped the Old Olive mat on top of the Riding Hood Red card base and on the inside I stamped Happy Mother's Day.




The matching Top Note purse was created using the directions from Becky Roberts and after making a few of these as gifts their even easier to make than the first time.
Supplies: Bella Blossoms, Bella Rose DSP, Nesties, Top Note Sizzix die, Circle punches, Scallop circle punch, Ribbon, Eyelets, Velcro, Pop dots, Tacky Tape. Colors: Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, Whisper White.
Have a great day!

This set is so pretty, Lynn! I just love the Bella Rose dp. Don't laugh but I still haven't made these purses yet. It's on my stamping to-do list. Probably won't get to it until June, though. May is my card month from H-E-double hockey sticks :D Have a great week!
