Happy First Mother's Day

Good morning friends

I will have some more Mother's Day cards to share, as we finally celebrated Mother's Day this past weekend. We had the whole family here for brunch, and celebrated Mother's Day, Kelsey's Birthday, Olivia's Birthday, Zachary's First Birthday (because his was in March and we were in Arizona for it), Kelsey & Naor's new house and Gregg's retirement.  Whew.

This is the card I made for my parents to give Kelsey ... her First Mother's Day!

I was tickled with it until I see now that I repeated the Happy Mother's Day inside. I usually like to put something different inside. I did add "first" to the inside words at least.

I cut a rectangle from the scalloped panel to create a frame. Then I cut a second scalloped panel from white and popped up the striped frame. The stamped girl and sign were in my pile - I didn't get to use them last year - so she was glued to the back white panel.

I've used that scalloped panel a LOT - but this is the first time I created a frame with it. Fun!  Below is a peek at the inside ...
