Lilacs for Mother's Day

Soon lilacs will be upon us and I can’t think of a flower I’d rather have last longer in the garden.  This year I plan to cut mine and truly enjoy them in the house.

My card today was inspired by my own French Lilac bush.  I stamped the lilacs in VersaMagic Pretty Petunia & VersaMagic Purple Hydrangea.  The leaves were done in Old Olive & Pear Pizzazz.

The glitter background paper is from Kaisercraft’s Lilac Avenue Collection.  This delicate floral design is just so girly!

The accent pieces are from my Spellbinders Parisian & Fleur De Lis dies for that French flair.

I would like to take a moment to wish mothers everywhere a Happy Mother's Day.  Both my mother and mother-in-law passed away many years ago, but they will be in my heart today.

A close up of the lilacs.

A peek at the glitter paper.

Hope you are having a Happy Mothers Day.

Oh so pretty Donna. I love lilacs and can't wait until they bloom here. Currently, the leaves are just beginning. I am very lucky to have my mom (who had breast cancer 40 years ago this summer) and my mother-in-law both still with us. We will visit mother-in-law after church and mom later in the afternoon. I am a proud mom of a son and daughter! Hope you have a great day and thanks for sharing another great card.
