colourQ challenge #136 - Mother's Day

This weeks colourQ palette was a fabulous combination of orange, yellow and greens.  These were the perfect colours for Mother's Day cards.  I couldn't resist using Rosie Posie to make cards for both my Mom and Mother-in-law when they come for tea on Sunday.  I couldn't stop there and used the same colours to create notepads for them as well.
















All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Spring Moss, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest Bitty Dot
Stamps: Rosie Posie, Pretty Peonies, Heart Prints, A Little Argyle
Ink: Spring Moss, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest. Ripe Avocado
Dies: Rosie Posie, Limitless Layers 1 3/4". Rick Rack, Block Alphabet
other: foam dots, baker's twine (The Twinery)

These are really wonderful. I completely forgot about the sentiments in Heart Prints. They are perfect for these cards. And, the notepads are just so sweet. I hope you have a nice tea, and so glad to see you got your cards done on time!
