Second helpings - with a Fusion French Twist

I'll make this quick - the weekend is nearly here!!!  My Fusion - French Twist cards came together pretty quickly.  With this inspiration how could they not?
 For card two:
  •  a pretty little pale yellow patterned paper from an old collection 
  • SSS Fog CS for the Reverse Confetti scalloped border,
  • a darling little Heidi Swapp embellishment from water-color paper
  • another E.H. Amazing Women sentiment
  • another of Bobby's flowers 
  • ta da, my take on the sketch:



Now, so I don't forget... Happy Mother's Day to you all!!whether you're a pet-Mom, an Aunt-Mom, an honorary Mom, or Grand-Mom... where would the world be without us all? 

I'll be thinking of my own darling Mom...
I'll never stop missing her:

Beautiful card Michelle. Love the heart with the die-cut word in the middle. The colors look so classy and elegant. The vellum flower is amazing.

Beautiful card - you have me really wanting those flowers :-)

Simple and sweet! Beautiful, clean card and love that flower. I can't imagine how much you must miss your Mum. My dad died nearly two years ago and I don't enjoy Fathers day anymore. Maybe that changes as the years go by. Will give my Mum an extra big hug tomorrow.

What a beautiful card Michele! So sorry I'm behind on my commenting, been a wild ride around here. I hope you have a beautiful Mother's Day, I know it is probably hard with missing your mom and all, but I hope it is a good one for you anyway. And I'm sure she is very proud of her sweet and loving daughter! Hugs, Brenda
