Happy Mother's Day!!! 

I made a card for both my mom and Topher's mom!  The first card is for Topher's mom.  His momma loves to call her three little kiddos her ducks in her pond, so I decided to use this cute little stamp I purchased in a crafts store in Phoenix (not sure what it's called).  It's originally just the Big duck and the 3 little ducklings, but I cut it in 2 pieces in order to stamp the big duck again so it mimics Topher's family. 

The green paper is cuttlebugged with the Birds and Swirls folder, and punched with a Martha Stewart border punch.  I broke down and purchased Copic markers before we left for Dallas (much to the pricey chagrin of Topher) and have been in love with coloring in my stamps.  I added some grass using my Copics as well.  The ribbon was another dollar store find. 

This card was for my own Momma.  I chose the cut off of the Sweethearts cartridge.  I colored in the heart with Copics and wrote in mom on the heart.  I then embossed it several times to give it a glossy feel.  The flower in the girls hair is actually nail art that I bought in a beauty supply store.  I cuttlbugged the green background with spots and dots, and the ribbon is another dollar bin find.  Celebrate today is part of the mini sentiments stamp set from Papertrey ink!
