DeNami Design May Blog Hop - pretty pastels

Gosh, I really look forward to DeNami's blog hops each month, so much fun and inspiration to be had!
And this month is no different...

Here's all the info you need:
When: The blog hop starts on May 20th at 6 AM, PST. However, you have until May 21, 2012, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize).

Prizes: We are giving away THREE $20 gift certificates to our website! We'll be giving away one gift certificate to a random participant (DT members not eligible) and then we'll also be giving away TWO gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop!

You should have arrived here from the fabulous Lisa Petrella's blog. If not, don't worry, you can always go to the DeNami Design blog to get back on track!!

I know Mother's day is over, but I created this with both my Mother and the hop in mind...
I just LOVE the Mimi stamps, don't you...she's so flirty, fun and elegant all at the same time!! For the sentiment, I actually used the new "Happy Mother's Day" cling stamp. I simply masked off the stamp with clear tape before inking it up. I have always used DeNami's cardstock but recently purchased the iridescent strawberry freeze. Ohh my, it's so pretty!! There was no way to capture it here in this picture, but what it lends this little card is wonderful!! I paired it with some kraft and cream cardstocks along with ivory & pink grosgrain ribbon. I wish you could see how soft and pretty this looks in person. 
That's it for me today, it's time to visit with the very talented Pattie Goldman. Remember to leave those comments along the way so that you will be eligible for the randomly drawn gift certificates!!

PS: One more thing...Did you hear that Wendy & I are now hosting our own monthly challenges over on our DeNami Addict blog. Our first challenge ends on June 11th, we'd love to see you there!! The current challenge over at DeNami Design ends May 28th.
