Happy Mother's Day, Mojo-style

Well it's that time of year again to work on Mother's Day cards. Once again, Mojo Monday pulled through with an awesome sketch that I used to make 2 cards with 2 different looks for 2 special mothers. Without further ado, here they are:
This one is for you, Mom Staley. So, if you're reading this, you get a sneak peak. That's okay, though, because unfortunately your card will probably not arrive on time for Sunday. As I was about to mail it, I thought I might add a finishing touch of stickles around the heart and then I remembered that it has to dry before I put it in the envelope, and the deadline for the mail to go out today had passed by the time it had dried. So, when you are feeling like you have a lame daughter on Sunday who "forgot" about Mother's Day, please feel free to visit my blog and see the card that should be arriving on Monday. Oops. ;)
I used Memory Makers patterened paper and black and cream cardstock for this card. The heart was cut with Graphically Speaking and the black paper was embossed with the Swiss Dots folder. I do not know the brand of the stamps or the ribbon. Here's another view:
And this one is for my special mother-in-law, Rose. This one should be there in time for Mother's Day. :) I used the DCWV "Pocketfull of Posies" stack for the patterned paper. The scallop is a Martha Stewart border punch, "Scallop Dot." The ribbon is from American Crafts and I used stickles for the flower and for the border around the sentiment. The orange paper is embossed with the Floral Fantasy folder.
Another view:And here is the sketch that I used for both of these cards: It is Mojo Monday Sketch #85.
Thanks for looking, and I hope all the moms reading this enjoy their Mother's Day weekend!

Well since you've seen it on my blog, I think the only surprise is that it actually arrived in time! I guess you'll get to read all the gushy stuff I wrote to you on the inside...

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!! I love you.
