Mother’s Day is everyday

I made another card for Altenew’s Celebrating Parent Card Drive. I think its really great that they are sending cards to seniors who are in nursing homes or shelters so they can feel loved, celebrated, and honoured too. I hope my cards get to them in time cause I don’t know why, I thought Mother’s Day this year was on the 25th of May…which is actually Father’s Day here in Germany! Its hard to keep track when you’re a multinational family who’s lived in a few countries. Mother’s Day in Spain is today 7th May, its May 14th in Germany & Singapore, May 28th in France… so lets say Mother’s Day is everyday and our kids should spoil us all the time, who agrees? 😆

I wanted multi coloured flowers as I wanted to join in AAA Card challenge again and the theme is Bright and Beautiful. To get it so colourful, I first covered a whole page using a flower stamp and Versamagic dew drop inks to give it a chalky looking finish.  I used Garden Treasure set, but you can use any flower stamp to cover a page, just make sure to overlap and cover the whole paper with colour!

I then stamped the flowers and leaves from Altewnew Hennah Elements set and used the coordinating dies to die cut them and arranged them on the card. The sentiment comes from CASual Fridays Stamps and inside I will stamp Happy Mother’s Day.

So a quick post for a relatively quick and easy card but I hope you enjoyed looking at it as much as I did making it.

Thanks for stopping by!
