Happy weekend dear friends!!!

Time for relaxing with family and friends...and hopefully SUN and warmer temps!!

I have been trying to work ahead on my Easter projects while also getting to the birthday cards that are coming up and...Mother's Day!!

You must remember watching our Mothers primping in front of the mirror...I guess like we do now...LOL!!!  My Granddaughters are always coming into the bathroom while I am getting ready...asking "Can I try that?" or "What's that for?" 

Well I found the cutest little House of Mouse stamp and thought how perfect it would be on a mirror styled card!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on first image for a closer full screen view and slideshow...
I made an easel style card in a mirror shape...

I cut out oval shapes for the mirror, frame, image and matts...
I used silver cardstock for the mirror...
I added Shabby Green Frantage to the outer frame of the mirror, mirror base, image matt and sentiment matt...
"Happy Mother's Day" sentiment is from Hero Arts...

 the stamp is "Amanda Shines" from House of Mouse"...
 a closer view...
 I added a small hand mirror that is just oh so very cute...
I decorated it with a ribbon and flowers...
 the sentiment and bottom left corner with two sided paper torn to show the back side...
I also tore the sentiment matt and added the back side of the paper to show through...
 the card closed...

Well that is my Mother's Day card for my Mom!!  I hope that you like it!!  I will add a hidden tag with my personalized message for my Mom!
