thanks mother, thanks city crafter

I'm so happy to be joining the lovely ladies at City Crafter Challenge as guest designer this week. What a lovely theme Kirsty has chosen - "Tell someone they matter". Yep. Do it today. Don't wait for tomorrow.


This one's going out to my mom. She's always been there for me. Probably my #1 fan. I'm happy that I'll be seeing her in just a few days when I take a vacation from my family (tee hee hee) to spend some one-on-one time with my folks. And Michigan temperatures.



For my card I pulled out PP from My Mind's Eye and Glitz. Yippie. Only 999.999 more sheets to use up! The heart frame is from the SSS Heart in a Box die. The sentiment is heat embossed from STAMPlorations Bold Sentiments: Hello and paired with a Dymo label. I trapped a wood veneer heart lacquered with red nail polish behind the vellum in the frame and two chevrons covered with gold glitter Smooch up in the left corner. And added some lovely yellow sequins.

Thanks so much for having me, City Crafter.

  2. Congratulations on your GD spot, Maria! Fabulous card ... the balance between the pretty background florals and the diagonal stripes is wonderful ... and the little trapped-in-the-vellum heart is perfect next to that soft blue striped one ... sweet! Happy and safe travelling, my friend! Anita :)
