These are some cards I am offering in a Mother's Day Card Class I am doing next week! I totally cased all these cards! I just didn't have enough time to muster up the brain power to come up with my own ideas!! ;)Alright this one comes from the fabulous Nancy Riley at IStamp! She always has the best cards! Love her work!! I think I found all of these through her blog actually! Thanks for making my life so easy Nancy!! She always posts her IPicks on Sunday night and she finds the cutest ideas out there in bloggerland!!!

other...big shot, dies, bird punch, sponge, dimensionals, white gel pen

I love this rose stamp! I like the layered look of the flower. The card I cased can be found here from Stampin' Garden. I haven't used my rose in forever and a Mother's Day card seemed like to perfect time to dust off this set.

Thanks for the shout-out, Tara. Glad to see you back from your long "vacation." You're having a class? That must mean more time for stamping and we'll be seeing more? That would be great.

Have a great day!
