Sparkle N Sprinkle Non Traditional Mother's Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Non Traditional Mother's Day Blog Hop, which begins at the SNS Home Blog here (click on here).  If you hopped here by way of the amazing  Julie Warner's you are right on track.
 Hopefully you have been enjoying the marvelous cards presented by my fellow Sparkle Team designers.  Our Mother's Day inspired hop  is non traditional because we are displaying cards which honor special women in our lives, whether they are Moms or not.  We hope you will enjoy these feminine cards, and perhaps create something special for the dear women who regularly  and meaningfully touch your life.

Today I have three cards to share with you.  Each card represents  particular women who have  been a part of my life. I hope they make you smile.

This card is for all the women who mother a child other than their own, for what ever reason, we thank you. I used the Stamp Set 426 Easter Chicks .  I added a little Sparkle N Soft Sun Dazzle SS112 to my Chick to make her/him warm and fuzzy. The Bunny has a little Pink Spirit SS108 Sparkle N Soft in her ears. There is also a little glitz (glitter) too, Orange Surprise G1010, Dazzling Rose G1085, Shell Pink G1022 and Sparkling Snow G1003 all of these fantastic products are available at Sparkle N Sprinkle.

Here is card number two. If the shoe fits, buy more then one pair.  When I was  in college I would buy a pair of shoes and then make a dress to match..... my good friend loved to borrow my shoes...... Today we still borrow from each other when we are in need of that certain unique item. 

I stamped this shoe  three times on different paper and paper pieced it, colored with Copic markers and added a little Fiery Fushia Glitter G1004 to the shoe.  I used a Spellbinders die to frame the shoe and highlighted the frame with Parisian Mist Glitter G1017. The  Parisian Mist Glitter matches the green paper perfectly.

My idea of housework is to sweep the room with a glance.

 This is one of my favorite stamps. I have had so much fun with it.  Today she is all dressed up in beads and glitter and check out her classic marabou slippers.   I think this evening I will slip on my marabou slippers and beaded dress and sweep the room with a glance.
