♥ Simon Says...Mother's Day/Special Girl ♥

This week's challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog is about that special woman/girl in your life! Just make a card for Mother's Day, a feminine birthday card, a bride-to-be, etc. As long as it's for a special lady, we want to see it!!

For this week's card, I used a beautiful clear stamp set by Crafty Secrets called 'Love You Mother'. Love the sweet images in this set including that fun "coupon". I will be giving this to the BEST mom in all of the world! Mine! She is the most unselfish, caring and loving person I have ever known. I have yet to meet one person who even comes close to being as wonderful as her. Love you so much Mom!!

I also used some beautiful papers from the new Echo Park Graceful 6x6 Paper Pad. (See my giveaway above!) Love the vintage feel they have!

And to finish off my card, I also used some Maya Arts Twill Ribbon, Liquid Pearls in White Opal, a Martha Stewart paper rose and a little gem on the crown.

Here is the inside of the card.

As always, Heidi will generously give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

Have a super fabulous day!

Awww Melissa your Mammy sounds really wonderful. My wee we all call her is an incredible Mother. When her teacher was asking them all in class one day what they wanted to be when they grew up, most gave the usual answers of nurses, doctors, fire fighters....superhero's etc., and my wee Mamma said she wanted to be a Mammy when she grew up! Her teacher told her off and told her she had to be more than just a mammy. And my wee Mamma may have only been 7 but she stuck to her guns and argued and said that there was nothing wrong with wanting to be a Mammy and she would be one and have loads of children! Heehee, she certainly stuck to her guns anyway....5 kids later! I love this gorgeous card youve made. And the inside of your card is just as beautiful. Your Mum will love it no doubt. Lee x

Hi Melissa,

There is something so dear about your work that I find so comforting! The shabby chicness, the pastel colors that I absolutely LOVE, the distressed edges which give it an aged yet graceful feel ... sigh! So love your work and your blog! :)

Have a lovely weekend!

Big Hugs,
