Mother's Day cards

Here are the 2 mother's day cards that were given to my mom yesterday.

The first uses my newest stamps and inks...

I've used Vintage Roses stamp set by Altenew, with Memento Dew Drop inks.
I did put a little of clear Wink of Stella on the roses, though you can't see that here.
The sentiment was stamped (badly) with an old stamp that I bought years ago. It has a floral border around it but I chose to use an SU marker to just colour the sentiment in the middle. It didn't stamp very clearly so I went over it with the same marker, then wrote Mom underneath.

I'm entering this card at:
Stamping Sensations - Flower Power
Crafty Calendar - Mum's Day/Special Female
MAWTT - Purple Haze

And here is the card that I made for my son to give to his nan for mother's day...

I've used Lili of the Valley's Posy Trio for this card, coloured with promarkers.
The text background paper was free with a craft mag some time ago.
I've used my SU eyelet border punch for some pretty edges, and Die-namics 'By The Letter' dies for nan.
Happy Mother's Day sentiment was printed off the pooter.

I'm entering this card at:
