FIFTH AVENUE FOR MOM

This card suits my mom for Mother's Day ... she appreciates a modern design flair like I do! Nouveau Chip DP and Fifth Avenue Floral provide that contemporary look I was trying to achieve. I went back and forth trying to decide between an Apricot Appeal button and a Basic Black button. DH chose Apricot Appeal, so Apricot Appeal it is!

That Karen! ... she's drawing up another easy-to-work-with, inspiring sketch this week with Sweet Sunday Sketch #67. You can find more inspiration for your own creation at the blogs of the other Sweet Sunday Stampers ...

Another super card, Nancy! I need desperately to work on a second Mother's Day card, The one I posted a few weeks ago will go to my Mother-In-Law. I have to hold back the one to my mom because she looks at my blog!

I hope your mom is tolerating the treatments well. I keep her (and you) in my thoughts.
