Celebrating Mom with Kristii Lockart

Happy Friday dear friends!  I can hardly believe we are at the end of April already!! Seems like the month just flew right on by.  In just a few short days, it will be time to celebrate those women who are so very special in our lives.  I love Mother's Day and all that it entails!! It also means that my kids will either come home or call me at some point in the day and I look forward to spending time with them!!  I'm so sad to say that my mom is no longer with us, but each year I make a card in remembrance of her!  I was excited to design some Mother's Day cards with Glitz Design's Laced with Grace Collection!  What a gorgeous line of papers!!  So perfect for Mother's Day cards, or any type of card for that matter!!
I died some seam binding with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Reinker and added some blue buttons to enhance the blue in the chair.  I also layered a Laced with Grace Glitzer on top of a Laced with Grace Whatnot and I love the combination! Glitz Designs embellishments are so fun to work with and give you so many possiblities!
 Supplies used:
Glitz Designs "Laced with Grace" patterned Papers: Polka and Rose
Glitz Designs "Laced with Grace" Stamps
Glitz Designs "Laced with Grace" Glitzers
Glitz Designs "Laced with Grace" Whatnots

other supplies:  Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream CardstockPrima lace, Hug Snug Seam Binding, Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Reinker, Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, Papertrey Ink buttons and twine, Papertrey Ink stamps: Tiny Tags, Papertrey Ink Double-Ended Banner Die.

The next card is very simple and easy.  It will take you all of 2 minutes to put together!  I think the whatnot word collage sets the tone of the card and the rest just falls into place!
 I layered some cardstock with a Laced with Grace Whatnot, added some ribbon then attached a Laced with Grace Journaling Sticker over the ribbon.  I added a Laced with Grace Glitzer, cut out and attached some butterflies and added some jewels and a bow.
Supplies used:
