Be Inspired #82- Mother's Day

Mother's Day is rapidly approaching...are you ready? Is there a special mother you know that you wish to remember? Create a card or project for her Cuttlebug style and link your project to Cuttlebug Challenge blog Be Inspired #82. I used Provo Craft Cuttlebug Bloom Dots embossing folder. I embossed the light green grid designer paper, then lightly sanded the paper to let the white core show through.

My papers are BasicGrey Origins and the chipboard, punches, top note die, and sentiment are all SU. I painted the sides of the chipboard with white acrylic paint and added the Martha Stewart half back pearl for the eye.

Hint for your significant other, friends, or other family members: Make a wish list then send them to:
http://www.cricut.com/shop/
I will be asking dh to shop there. He will be happy to shop online and not at a mall :)

I hope you will stop by Cuttlebug Challenge blog to see all of the lovely Mother's Day cards and projects. If you leave a comment, don't forget to mention that June sent you!

Oh that is a lovely card, June - what lovely colours (I think I have to dig out my Origins paper now!) - perfect for a non-pink loving mother (I know a few!).
