Another Mother's Day Card

Hope you and yours are having a wonderful day! We started out with some showers but just as we left church this morning the sun broke through! Praise God! He gives us just what we need when we need it! I didn't realize just how badly I needed that warm sunshine until it peeked out! What a glorious day!

Today I want to share with you another Mother's Day Card. Today's card was inspired by one of my favorite crafters, Becca Fekken at Amazing Paper Grace. She recently featured a tutorial on her blog showing how to use paper punches to create beautiful dimensional flowers. I have been experimenting with folded paper flowers recently and when I spotted this could not wait to start. Thanks Becca for your inspiration! You lend encouragement in so many ways!

Thanks as always and have a wonderful day!

Such a pretty card. Love the banner with "Mother" on it. Very lovely, indeed.

Great cards as usual! (so jealous of your talent!)

To answer your question on my blog about the twisty tool - I have no idea. We got it several years ago - maybe at CVS. You'd probably have to search online to find one. I just did one and there's some on ebay. LOL Use the words 'hair braider'.
