Heart 2 Heart Challenges Blog: Mother's Day

Hello Everyone!
This post is bitter-sweet for me... This is my last entry to the H2H Challenges Blog as part of the Design Team, for my term has ended as of this April.  But at the same time, I have some great news to celebrate.  I have been chosen by Close To My Heart to be part of this years 2011 Convention "Extravaganza"  team of instructors.  So May and June will be very busy for me, trying to finish my artwork for this years convention.  Taking Lisa Stenz spot and mine are the very talented Jody Gustafon and Haley Dyer, please visit their blogs and wish them a warm welcome!


May 1st brings new sponsors to H2H and they are the brilliant and generous Sharon Holmes and Angel Shifflett, thank you ladies for sponsoring great prizes for the month of May.

For this Mother's Day challenge I thought of the perfect thing that goes with this special day... 
and that is of course ROSES!!!

For these tiny roses I used 1 1/2" squares to cut my flower out and then form the roses.  Don't forget that there is a picture tutorial on how to make these roses on the right side of my blog under "Tutorials".  This was a very simple card to make, very little detail as to NOT to take away from the roses.  Inside of course there is a beautiful stamp image with the phrase, "Happy Mother's Day".

So now visit the rest of the Design Team's beautiful creation and get inspired to make your own creation.  Don't forget to snap a picture of it and link it up to Heart 2 Heart Blog.
