M is for Mary

Happy Monday All!

Hope all the Moms had a fantastic Mother's Day! I was blessed to be with my Mom and one of my daughters and two of my grandchildren! We had beautiful weather and a fun time at a neighbor's cookout!

The card I am sharing today was made for my dear friend Mary. She is so special to me! She is always there for me, drives me wherever I need (or want) to go, and is a true Sister in Christ! A birthday card for her was a joy to make! It is a 6 x 6 card made with cardstock from a K&Co collection. I cut a window in the center and curled the pieces back. I used mini copper brads to hold the curls in place. I then cut another piece of the cardstock for the backing. I added a border in coordinating cardstock cut with a MS border punch. The M was cut from gold textured cardstock with the Cricut. Inside I adhered a computer generated verse printed on Swiss dot cardstock and colored with chalk to coordinate with the floral print. I didn't have an envelope for this size and thickness of card, but I was able to make one from a 12 x 12 sheet of coordinating paper. This design is a favorite of mine and I was very pleased with this result! Best of all, Mary loved it!!

Hope you all have a terrific week! Take time to tell those important to you that you love them! And, if you have a special friend like Mary, be sure to give them a call or send a card to let them know how precious they are to you! Friends like these are a treasure!

Blessings to you,
Vicki
