What I did on Mother's Day...

Hi all!

Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day. Mine started the night before...overseas calls to our mothers (Japan is 14 hours ahead...I think...lol!). My mother-in-law (MIL) mentioned she was out gardening before our phone call...well, my mind went into full gear and I pulled out Spellbinders™ die templates to come up with this...

Butterfly Shaped Card by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Cardstock: The Paper Company (white) and American Crafts (blue); Patterned Paper: Graphic45 (Little Darlings Collection); Ink: Clearsnap; Bling: Want2Scrap; Glitter: Ranger Ink (Stickles); Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S5-077 Labels Twenty-Five, S5-051 Fanciful Flight ;S4-329 Butterfly Circles and EL-007 Elegance); Adhesive: ScraPerfect (The Best Glue Ever)

See! Even your MIL can inspire you! LOL!!

Can You Help?


Also during Mother's Day, I created a two-page layout for Crop for Luv. Spellbinders is hosting a Crops of Luv National Scrapbooking Day Challenge.

You just never know where inspiration will come from, do you? I'm glad your MIL inspired you to create this beautiful card, Margie! It's so beautiful and I love how you pulled the one large butterfly to complement the PP! I'm going to check out the challenge you posted.
