The last of the Mother's Day cards...

Figured I may as well share them! Not sure how much crafty time I'm going to end up getting this week after all, as we have a rather big plumbing problem, involving the sewage trap. I'll let your imaginations fill that one in - it's not disaster proportions yet, but it's NOT GOOD. Sunday didn't go as planned at all, but it was still a pretty good day with the family...and Connor at one point called Rob "Old Man Fruitcake," so really? If that was all that happened that day, it would have been awesome.

You've been very busy with all these wonderful cards, Jessi! I'm attracted the last card with the glittered butterfly on the doily-it's so sweet!

Good luck with the plumber!

Fantastic collection Jessi! Love how they are all so very different, you are so clever to be able to create so many different styles so easily!

Debbie said...

Sooooo sorry for the sewer problems!!

Yay for a big Mother's Day cards post!! :) These are ALL beautiful! I can't decide if the sewing one or the green with pink butterflies or the embossed one is my fave! But I also love all the cards with quilling!!

Allison said...

Jesus...you're a machine! I would have dragged out these for a month of blog posts (ha!). You and I must have the exact same stash (save the quilling tools)...OMG, each of these paper collections need to be used up! Good luck with the sewage...yuck!

Annette said...

LOVE all of these cards...you are a busy crafter these days...I so love your amazing quilling...

Emily Keaton said...

Jessi, you constantly AMAZE me!! Look at all of the variety here!! WOW is really all I can say. :D :D :D Oh, and I spy some fabulous My Mind's Eye papers {grin}. You know what I'm talking about!!

Jen W. said...

Clearly you are some otherworldly creature that doesn't need sleep. Awesome awesome awesome collection and I love how different they all are! Numbers 2, 8 and 9 are my faves.

Hope you get the plumbing problem sorted. So not cool...

Old Man Fruitcake huh? I'll have to remember that one! :)

Jingle said...

Lovely cards!

Jenny said...

Oh yes...... we have had our fair share of sewage problems since moving here two and half years ago!!! not the sort of home maintenance you relish spending your money on but kinda necessary :0)
Another mini art gallery of cards for us.... Love all the quilling as always, particularly love the yellow daisy.
Hope you get your problem sorted :0)

Oh my word, Jessi! What a fabulous collection of Mother's Day cards. I'm amazed at the variety. They're all so different. Love them! Good look with your plumbing! Ann Y.

Nance said...

So so gorgeous, every one of them! Ok, so you've made me feel guilty AND lazy! I haven't touched a stamp in almost a month!

I did finally get a post up for Flashback Friday tonight.

I just went back through all your posts for May from where I left off. You have been busy crafting. Wonderful creations!

Sorry your mother's day didn't turn out as expected. I hope your week gets better as it closes out.

Hope the plumbing problem gets fixed. We have a plumbing issue too....the washer rinse pipe keeps overflowing and running into our newly painted family room! Probably not as big an issue as yours, just annoying.

I hope to get back in the craftin' spirit over the next few days. You've truly given me some inspiration. I finally bought a new quilling tool. Now I just have to do it!

Hope tomorrow is a better day for you! Prayers to you!

Dana said...

Wow these are awesome!!! And i LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the quilled flowers, especially the sunflower!!! I think i need to pull out my quilling paper and and make something!!! :)

~Tammy~ said...

Jess, seriously I think you are on speed to crank these out! :-)))

Old man fruitcake huh...that's a new one, and sounds just like something my short stack would blurt out. He has a sassy mouth on him. When it's not your kid, you can chuckle and I did but I am sure it wasn't funny at the time. We all can sympathize never knowing what is coming out of their mouths! Ugg...

Plumbing issues....not fun! Sorry!

Barb said...

wow! these are gorgeous! i am in LOVE with the red/pink silhouette card. white embossing on the red is so pretty, then the subtle butterfly textured background is wow! great cards...

JJ Bolton said...

If I could just bottle your card-making energy:) As always, the number and variety of cards you make astound me! From artsy to funny to cute to elegant and everything in between! You're amazing!

Good luck with your sewer issues! Not fun, but needs to get done!
