So my brother was complaining on how much cards are to buy in the store......kinda pricey!  Well to help him out this year, I made a few cards for him to give our mom for those important holidays that you'd better not forget, like her birthday, mother's day and Christmas.  Here are two cards I made and better get in the mail to him fast since our Mom's birthday is this month.....(Mom if you are seeing this...pretend you didn'!!)

My Mom loves sunflowers so this was a perfect combo ~ my brother is so thoughtful...haha!!

 Products Used:
Cardstock: American Crafts
Twine, enamel dots and sequins

For Mother's Day, I wanted to have a balance between masculine and feminine.  Since this is from my brother, didn't want too frilly but since it's for my Mom, wanted a little bit "girly".  I think this card was the perfect balance.

Products Used:
CTMH: Just to Say Stamp Set ~ Cricut Collection
Paper: Simple Stories ~ Homespun
Twine, enamel dots and gems

Best Sister Ever!!!!  And my brother thought store-bought cards were expensive, wait til he gets my "bill" ~ lol!!!
