Thinking about Mom...PDCC28 53

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, May 5, 2010 @ 9:00 PM | , , ,

Hi Everyone! Here with The Play Date Cafe Challenge #28 - Julie Ranae chose this Oh So Pretty in Pink color palette to play with as it is one of her all time favorites since her early childhood days :) This week, I would like to welcome my dear friend & Spellbinders™ Design Team-mate, Ashley Cannon Newell as our Guest Designer :)
Here's my Thinking about Mom card:
This beautiful color palette that Julie chose is so fitting for such a wonderful day approaching: Mother's Day. My Dear Mom & Bestest Friend (before my hubby of course :) rests in Peace in Heaven I am sure :) so I am giving this card to my Dearest Sister Tina - whom is like my Mom in SO MANY ways :)
I love the way the ornate Melissa Frances Vintage keyhole looks on the multi-layered glittered heart that I made using my Spellbinders™ Nestabilities S4-136 Classic Heart & S4-137 Classic Scalloped Heart die templates.

I am hooked on the Spellbinders ™ Borderabilities! They consume barely any space & cut gorgeous, detailed borders. I would love to know if you have played with these or do you prefer hand held punches? Thanks for looking!

I hope you can join along with this week's creativity challenge. After you have made your project, please head on over to The Play Date Cafe & link your post. If you post your creations in an on-line gallery, please label it PDCC28. Be sure to see what all The Play Date Cafe DT girls have created, (on my side bar) & our Guest Designer, Ashley Cannon Newell to share with you for inspiration! I hope you are able to join along with this week's challenge. Be Sweet!
