Be Inspired 29- Mother's Day Cards & Envelopes

April 29, 2009

Another Wednesday means it is time for Be Inspired 29! The Cuttlebug Challenge this week was to make a mother's day card and matching envelope. We were sponsored by My Grafico this week, and used the "Shopping Boutique" digi images for our projects. Because the images were simple and graphic in nature, I decided to follow that theme for the entire project. I am pretty happy with how it turned out!

This first image is of the card. I used one of the "With Love" embossing borders for both the card and the envelope. This is the front of the envelope.
And this is the back of the envelope, where I tied in the border punch to match the card.
And thanks for posting all the fabulous "home" based sentiments on last week's post! And now for my two random winners of the Marks Company card kits are:


Congrats ladies! Please email me your addresses to jnllawson at

Now- how about American Idol last night? These were my top 5 from the beginning, well Top 4 plus Adam because I knew he would be here, so needless to say I was a happy camper last night. They did a WONDERFUL job last night...and for the next two weeks I am just going to be sad when one of them goes home. And then on finale night...I will happy and sad at the same time (well, maybe just sad if Adam ends up winning. Hee hee!). They are a very talented bunch this year, and I think all of them will have successful music careers. Danny is still my favorite and getting my vote, but I really loved Matt last night as well. But they were all I can't even begin to think about who will go home tomorrow. :(

Be sure to check out all of the other creations this week at the Cuttlebug Challenge...they are fabulous!

Until later,
