365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday #4

Can you believe 365 Cards has been going for an entire month already!?!? How much fun are you having? Because I am having a blast! I love having a challenge each day. Something that really stretches your mind (even if I haven't finished them all ; ) If you have yet to check out 365 Cards, jump on over there and see what's going on. You will be happy you did! So today is a sketch (as it is each sunday) Here is what we had to work with:
Such a fun sketch by Pam. And here is my take:

I started with the new Mother set from Papertrey Ink (I was SO thrilled that I won it!) I hand stamped some Lavender Moon paper with a holiday set by Martha Stewart. Its actually a Christmas set with partridge birds and pine cones, but it also has some twigs and other things that will fly as "not Christmas-y." I stamped using some Lavender and Fresh Snow ink.

I also stamped some Linen Vellum with my houndstooth backgrounder from CHF. Cut all the circles with my cuttlebug and nestabilities. Only thing left was to add the fabulous buttons and finish off the sentiment. 

I talked to my mom the other day (*well actually EVERY day this week) And told her that this was NOT her mother's day card. I don't want to spoil the surprise. She and you will just have to wait to see what she is getting. This will go to another special mother in my life... I think she doesn't read this blog, or at least not too often so maybe she won't notice ; )

Thanks for checking in today! Head on over to 365 Cards to see what the other DT members have made. I can guarantee they are fabulous!!
