Birthday Card Set

Hello again.
It's been a while since I posted - I've been enjoying a rest from the computer and Internet for a week of family time.  It can be a bit time consuming and addictive can't it.
Anyway - today I'm sharing a card set I made for my mother for Christmas.  She's always needing birthday cards, so I made her a set of 6 cards with co-ordinating envelopes.  Lots of Hero Hues cards and Envelopes and LOTS of yummy stamps.  I used a sentiment from the new Friends are Treasures cling set, then added different background stamps and papers to each card.  I presented the cards in a Papertrey Ink box and tied it up with some Grosgrain ribbon from The Ribbon Girl.

This one used the Flowing Flowers and Leaves cling stamp.

Here are all the cards together.  I also used the Music Background and Classic Fabric Background stamps.

I do love tone on tone stamping :)
Hope you are all enjoying your break as much as me.
Have a great day.

Beautiful Lucy, they always make such great presents, I made my first lot last year and they were such a hoot that I did that again this year. Great design on yours, thanks for the inspiration.
