Stamping Handmade Hugs

When you can't hug in person, send a Handmade Hug you created, with Stamps, Paper & Ink!

So, my Mom is living in an Assisted Care Home right now, she has fallen a number of times now and is unable to get herself up. Hopefully she will regain some strength and be able to live on her own again. Anyway, she doesn’t drive right now, so she can’t just come over like she used to. We decided to take her out to dinner the night before Mother’s Day, partly to miss the Mother’s Day restaurant madness and so we could be home on Mother’s Day for our kids coming to visit, at different times. I wish she could’ve seen the kids too.
Anyway, I know a card can’t replace seeing the grandkids, but I wanted to make it special and one of a kind! She liked that she is the only one to have this card and she intends to keep it!
I recently bought the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate and have been dying to use it, it’s so pretty! Everything is always prettier in person than it is in the picture in the catalog. I LOVE the new In-Color Berry Burst, and the gold foil compliments it so well! I embossed the flower, which makes it so elegant looking.

I still want to try Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide with this set, but I wanted to give my Mom’s card the royal treatment but using lots of gold!

I did this card as a Color Challenge with a large FaceBook group of fellow demonstrators! (You can join all the awesome Demonstrator only FaceBook groups, you just need to get the starter kit…which is a 25% savings on any products you want, just contact me), Challenges are so Fun!! Especially because we win products!! It’s also great to see all the amazing creativity of the group.
The card base is Night of Navy, the mat is So Saffron, the back ground stamp is Soft Sky and the petals are Powder Pink with Wink of Stella all over them. The flower is done on water color paper. 
The new Catalog/Idea Book has a lot of fun new things, one is Mini Sequin Trim…in several colors! I can’t wait to get it!
