Mother's Day card Doily....

Happy Monday Morning everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous
Mother's day weekend! I know I sure did! We closed the store on Saturday
and I took my mom out to lunch in Cahone, CO. It's a lovely little restaurant
that most people might overlook in that tiny town... But I happen to meet the
owner one day... She came into my store and bought some items and saw
my cards there and said they were amazing, the she asked
me if she could  sell some of my cards in her gift shop/restaurant...
I was honored she asked me and so I decided to go check out her place....
It's really cute and she has a country farm theme going on....
The food was yummy! She makes homemade ice cream and deserts
which we all had! LOL It's got a nice "down home" feel and my mom enjoyed it.
Which, is really all that matters.... right?  Then my hubby surprised me
by ordering pizza for dinner that night.... YUMMY again! My oldest son
surprised me with some BEAUTIFUL Flowers and Balloons.... Then
on Sunday morning (I always make breakfast) my middle son Made
me my favorite breakfast (French Toast & Bacon) Yummy! :o)
My youngest son baked me a cake and my oldest made us
Spaghetti for dinner.... So it was a wonderful weekend where I
didn't cook anything at all! That's a first! LOL But it was really
sweet and nice of them to do! I was planning on crafting but
didn't do any.... But I did shop online! That's always fun IMO! :o)
 
Now that I've rambled on about my weekend... let me share a
cards I made that was inspired by a Stampin' Up card kit....
I used my wonderful cutting machine (Silhouette) to create it....
 
 
I sent this card to my Mother in Law....
I used Stampin' Up's digital paper that I 
added it to my Silhouette library....
I made a 4 x 5 1/4 rectangle & 2 1/2 x 4 3/4 shape
then filled it with the SU digi paper....
 
Then I got a BEAUTIFUL (Samantha Walker) Doily &
a Dress form from the Silhouette store and filled
them both with SU digi paper....
 
Got a tag from the Silhouette store too and typed
out Happy Mother's Day....
 
I let my printer print out all the images on a 12x12 piece of
white card stock, then put it in my Silhouette,
where everything cut out so beautifully....
I added the crochet ribbon, cut out a flower from my SU flower ribbon,
used some twine to tie the tag... and inked a little here and there...
and BAM! I made a lovely card for my MIL... Which she LOVED! :o)
 
Well, that's all I have for today! I hope you all have a
wonderful week and have an AWESOME DAY!!!!

  7. The card is beautiful. I was wondering what printer you use to print out your imagines? Your always look so nice and I have been looking into getting a new printer more card making friendly.
