H2H #54 Mother's Day!

Happy Monday!

Time for another Heart 2 Heart challenge...this time it is Mother's Day! 

If you're like me, you wait until the night before you need the card, then scramble to get it done.  This challenge will get you motivated to have your Mother's Day cards done with time to spare this year!

For the border, I stamped the roses in Vineyard Berry ink.  The dark ones are 1st generation stamped, and the lighter ones are just stamped a second time without reinking. I trimmed them with micro-scissors, then glued them to the card base.  Then I trimmed around the roses and the base together to get the pretty cut out edge, allowing the inside edge of the card to show through when it's closed.  Leaves were 1st and 2nd generation stamped with Juniper ink.  A bit of fussy cutting on this card, but other than that it is pretty simple.

Pop on over to H2H to see what the rest of the Design Team has created to inspire you this week! 

Sadly, this is the last challenge that Lisa and Corina will be on the DT for...but they have a really good excuse for leaving...they were both chosen to be Extravaganza instructors at the CTMH Convention this summer!!! Corina and Lisa, I will sure miss having you both on the team, but hope to catch you playing along with us once in a while.  I'll be keeping up with you on your blogs, so I won't say goodbye:) 

I want to welcome our new DT members, Jody Gustafson and Haley Dyer, and our Guest Designer joining us for May is Joelle H.  You may recognize these names as they are all super talented and are frequent H2H challenge players. Be sure to check out their blogs and leave them a warm welcome.

We also have 2 new prize sponsors this month, Sharon Holmes and Angel Shifflett.  Link up your Mother's Day card to H2H this week, and be sure to play along all month for more chances to win yourself a fabulous prize!  You could also end up in the Top 10 for a shot at a future Guest Designer spot on our DT.

Thanks for popping by today!
