Mother's Day with Elizabeth

Elizabeth, the stamp, not my mother or mother-in-law.  I really do love this stamp and it has not seen enough ink.  Sadly, it will be retiring the end of this month.  Along with just about everything on this card!  I used the Everyday Enchantment DSP from Sale-A-Bration and the doily die cut from the Flirtatious DSP.  Don't recognize it as Flirtatious?  I used my brayer to cover it with Early Espresso ink.  Love it!!!  I sure hope Stampin' Up brings out a die or die cuts to replace these doilies because they are so much fun!

So, I had to get motivated with a challenge, right?

With just a little artistic license I followed the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Additionally, the Just Add Ink challenge, "Just Add...Mother."

I have another card to share, so stay tuned!  It's my mother's card.  This one is for my mother-in-law.  So, Mom, don't read any more posts until after Mother's Day!  (my mother-in-law doesn't read my blog, so I'm safe, there.)


  1. Love the zig zag stitching and the doily is a wonderful pop of dark colour :) Well done!

  2. WOW what a fab idea to colour the doily to suit your colour combo!!! Thanks for your entry this week at Just Add Ink.
