You Are Beary Special, Mom!

The vast majority of my cardmaking is for our church card-ministry and my very favorite time of year is Mother's Day.  We have three racks of cards for sale (by donation) and before Mother's Day, we remind everybody that ANY donation is welcome.  This means that our sweet young ones can pick out a card for their mothers and drop their pennies into the donation box.  It is utterly charming!

I made this card thinking that these little charmers would find this a perfect card for their mothers...

Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

I used a simple little Rhubarb set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Thoughtful Rhubarb.  I added a dot of black enamel accents to the eyes to give them a sparkle!  

The layout comes from Freshly Made Sketches:

  • Stamps: Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Thoughtful Rhubarb
  • Paper: Papertrey Ink Fine Linen, Melon Berry, Simply Chartreuse
  • Ink: Memento brown and copics
  • Accessories: Sweet 'n Sassy Heart Scallop Border die, PTI Chartreuse ribbon, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Wilton Doily


  1. Your card is darling....perfect for a little one to give to their mom. Love all those heart details!

  3. Adorable Kim! Love those colours together. :)

  4. Dear Kim. What a great church you have where community works this beautiful! Love it! And wow you`re so generous with your time in creating these beauties. Bless your heart. This is such a great card. Thanks for sharing it. It sure made a smile on my face!

  5. Hi Kim! This fits the bill completely! I am sure there will be little hands clamouring for this one! What a great idea about the donation for the cards!
    I have a BIG apology to make! I was just scrolling back to a couple of posts ago ... and realised I hadn't acknowledged your inspiration for a recent card!!! So ... I have included the 'link-back' now ... and feel very bad that it just now that I have remembered! I think it was because the post and recipe were done several days after the cards were made ... and it just slipped my mind! So ... sorry for the slip up. Totally unintentional ... I always like to give credit where credit is due!

  8. So sweet Kim. I'm sure one of the little ones will snatch this right up!
