Mother's Day cards... The End

Warning... this post is very pic heavy!

Here is my 6th (and last!) post of the Mother's Day cards I made.  (And the decorations etc for the Mother/Daughter luncheon are below)  This morning the kids in junior church were so happy to make a card for their mother!  They were just as excited to add the Hershey bar to it!  :)

Here they are...
Quick and easy with a pre-made card

~K&Co paper for all
~the infamous Stampendous stamp (I told you that was the only one I had)
~Flora Doodles  ( I got them in several colors and they are great!)

I spent a lot of time during the last 2 weeks preparing for our Mother/Daughter Luncheon.  Some time spent VERY frustrated!!  I cut the letters for the banners from light pink several times and had to throw them away!  They would not cut cleanly!  [it was HL cardstock... but the dark was the same kind and it cut out well.  ???] Then I remembered that I had some Cricut 12x24 cardstock.  The color was just a little different, but the letters cut like butter!!! 

"welcome" banner

rosette made of old music I had

Western font cut in MTC

treble clef cut from Quarter Note at 1 1/2"
On the walls...(all cut from Quarter Note)

French horn


eighth note

half note

lg rosette from old sheet music


cello - why no violin on cart??

2 eighths
Here are the take home favors... flowers for ladies, sour cream containers (with kisses inside) for children...

I needed almost 50 of each
Forgot to take a pic of the program.  It had music in the background in pink (digi stamp) and the info in black.  They looked very vintage with all the spots my printer left on them!!

Thanks for stopping by!!  Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers!!
