Happy Mother's Day........{Trendy Twine Special Post}

Morning and Happy Mother's Day to all my wonderful bloggy friends!
I hope your day is packed with tons of hugs, love and maybe some crafty goodness :)
I have a special post to share with actually 2 cards that I made in honor of Mother's Day!
So along with a few of the Trendy Twine DT members we are honoring Mom's Day AND I am sharing Trendy Twine's 2 newest colors!!!
(so make sure to hop over to the Trendy Twine Blog to see what the other ladies made!)

Whoo Hoo!! Introducing 
They are now available and a MUST have....well all the colors are..LOL!!!

Ok enough talking.....time to share my projects!
First up is a CAS Mother's Day card using the showcase color of the month
Tickled with Teal and the newest release Totally White
I started out with a Kraft Cardstock base and added a mat of white and Chalk Garden designer paper from Three Bugs in a Rug. To give the mat a more finished look I added some machine stitching around the border. My sentiment is from Studio G~ Best Mom set
Here is a close-up of the twine flower I made. The base is a circle of the Totally White Trendy Twine and then to add some additional color to the flower I did a double bow using the Tickled with Teal Trendy Twine.
There is my project number 1. What do you think???

I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
Celebrate the Occasion~ Mother's Day
My Craft Spot~ Mother's Day
Scrappy Moms Stamps~ Mother's Day
DL Art~ Flowers
Cardz TV~ Mother's Day
Little Scrap Pieces~ Mother's Day
Ribbon Carousel Blog~ Celebrations

Now for my next project! I wanted to play along with this week's
Peachy Keen Stamps challenge which is to make a card for Mom/Grandma.
Well what better time to post then on Mother's Day so here is card #2
I made an easel card using the card kit from My Scrap Chick
So for this card I again used a Kraft Cardstock base and scrap papers from my ever growing stash. Since the white base was a bit plain I ran it through my cuttlebug with the flower embossing folder and then stickled the centers with Cotton Candy Stickle.
That adorable little girl is from Kadoodle Bug Designs and I stamped her face using Peachy Keen Stamps~ Princess Faces.
Instead of adding the bow cuts from the file, I added some Totally White Trendy Twine bows to her hair and to her dress. I finished off the front of the card I tied a big bow using 3GJ Dress White crinkle ribbon and some Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine.
The inside of the card is the same as the front except I added my sentiment, again from the same Studio G~Best Mom stamp set. There were flowers from the cut file that I chose not to add to the front, that I added to a cluster on the sentiment.
What do you think???
