"I Love You"

Hey Peeps!   Hope you all had a fun weekend.   I made a last-minute trip to visit my Mom on Oahu.  Got there mid-morning yesterday and returned this afternoon...yup, another whirlwind trip, but fun.  We (Mom, my son, his girlfriend, and I) spent some quality time together.  Hubby was unable to go this time, shucks.  We took her to lunch yesterday and today.  Also, visited my dad's grave to put flowers.  No craft shopping this time but that's OK, it was a "for Mom only" trip.  :-)  Awwwwm she was so happy.....yay!

Here's a Valentine's Day card I made.  I'm sure having fun making cards with "a scene within a scene."  The image is by LOTV which I inked up with Copics.  It's been a while since I stitched a card so I busted out my sewing machine for this one.  The DP is by Bo Bunny....bold red yah?  Love it.  Since this a Valentine's Day card, I thought the fence die with little heart cut-outs by Magnolia would be perfect.  The quote bubble is by Hero Arts.   The set comes with an assortment of bubble shape and quotes but for this card, I inked only the edge of one bubble and used my own sentiment by Stampettes.  

Other fun and crafty products used....
Grass stamps by Viva Las Vegasstamps
Flower die by Poppy Stamps from Island Scrapbooking
Butterfly punch by EK
Pearl by Kaiser Crafts

How fun... you, your son, and his girlfriend got to spend some quality time with your mom. I am sure that she was very happy to see all of you. I am glad that you were able to go visit your dad's grave site too.

What a great idea to have a scene within a scene on your card. I'll have to try that one day. Have a wonderful rest of the week!
