Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful mom's out there! I hope you each have a nice relaxing day.

My day started out with a very special treat. One might think Starbucks...but, this was even better: Cranberry Mint Ice Tea. Ice Tea is my one vice and my son and husband made me a very delicious hot version this morning. Zach got the recipe at school this week and has apparently been very excited to make it. Needless to say, it is just delicious! Thank you Ken & Zach for a great start to my day ;)

My card for today was made for my Mom. I had been wanting to try an Emboss Resist for quite some time, so I finally gave it a shot. It's actually very simple. I rubbed the cardstock with my Embossing Buddy to remove any static. I then stamped my image in Versamark and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. Once heated, I sponged Regal Rose and Rose Red ink in a circular motion around it. I love how it turned out. The colors blended together just perfectly.

Well, I'm off to get ready. We are heading out to Brunch and I've been saving my appetite up. Thanks for stopping by!

Julie, It was so much fun. I forgot to give mine to Howard for his mom so I'll be saving it for next year. Sounds like you had a lovely Mother's Day. Cranberry tea? Need to try it!
