Happy Monday Everyone!! I hope all you ladies out there had a nice Mother's Day!! I was honored to be able to spend the weekend with my dear mom and my entire family except for my dear husband who had to stay home and work.  I missed him dearly but had a great weekend!

Today it is time for another Product Spotlight at Stamp and Create!!  This week's product spotlight is "CHARMS!! That means all charms are up to 25% off!!  I love charms, they add just a special touch to your creations.

I used a flower 1 charm for my creation to accent Dreamy Willow from Whiff of Joy.  Since I used gold accents on my creation, I embossed the silver charm with gold embossing powder. I also used Beaded Fringe Ribbon, French White Fairy tale Roses, and the sentiment from the WOJ Blooming Spring Store kit available at Stamp and Create.

I also used from of my fave dp, Prima Sparkling Spring!!  I just love the shades of this paper and it's sheer elegance.  I added gold stitching, a punched fence border and a scrap piece of American Crafts ribbon.

This card is a Mother's day card for my step Mother in Law.  Hope she likes it!

For more inspiration using Stamp and Create's stamps and products, please visit my dt sisters:
 Joy, Lacey, Heidi, Vicky and  Jeanette.

challenges I am entering my creation in:
Thanks for stopping by and for your comments.  I greatly appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts.

Have a great day!!
