Happy Mother's Day

Welcome to the Cross Canada Blog Hop for May where our theme is Mother's Day. Although we actually celebrated last weekend, this is still the month to celebrate moms everywhere, whether here on earth or those who have left us and are looking down on us from heaven as mine is.

If you got here from Donna's blog, you are in the right place, but since this is a circular hop, you can actually start anywhere. If you find you get lost along the way, just head back to Michelle in Nova Scotia where you will find the complete list of hoppers. Now, on with the hop!

Since my mom passed away two years ago, I really have not felt like making Mother's Day cards at all, but this month I wanted to make some for those whose mom's are in heaven. 
I am really happy with how these cards turned out! The idea is from a card I found on Pinterest (Thank you, Denise Tarlinton!) that used Zoe paper. I replaced it with Canary paper from the Whimsy Paper Fundamentals pack. (I think this is the older pack as I can't find this pattern in the new catalogue.)

I stamped the moose and sentiment in Cocoa ink and used my watercolour pencils (Chocolate, Desert Sand. Bubble Gum and Black) to colour him in. The cocoa ribbon is from the old CTMH Ribbon Rounds Cocoa Collection (retired) that I had in my ribbon stash. I also distressed the edge of the White Daisy piece with some Cocoa ink to make it stand out more, and popped it up with 3D Foam Tape. 

That's it for this month. Please join us next month when the theme is Summer Vacation! Mine will be in Walt Disney World, Florida and I can't wait!

Since I am the last person on this hop, you can now return to Michelle in Nova Scotia and start over again or keep on going, so hop on over for some more great artwork!


  1. What an adorable card! Love how you used both sides of the fundamental paper.

  2. Super cute, and it's a great idea.
