Hello friends! Happy Weekend, and Happy Mother’s Day! I hope you are having a delightful weekend so far. It’s time for the latest edition of Weekender with Wanda here on the Simon Says Stamp blog. In honor of Mother’s Day, I thought I would share a cute card for mom! My supplies for today are from our newest collection – My Favorite. I used the awesome new Simon Says Stamp Exclusive “Beautiful Ride” stamp set along with the “Mother’s Day Zingers” stamp set to create a bicycle scene just for the special moms in our lives.

I started building my scene using patterned papers. My card is a 5×5 inch square. I used the cloud paper from the Echo Park Happy Summer paper pack for my bottom layer. Then I used some pretty Lawn Fawn polka dot papers and the Stitched Slopes dies to make green grassy hills.

The matching dies for the bicycle and Cuddly Critters Accessories are so great! Everything cuts out so nice and crisp. I stamped my sentiment onto Neenah cardstock using the Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink. I mounted the bike and the sentiment to the card using foam squares.

I made the fun flag/banner using items from the Cuddly Critters Accessories stamp set. I wanted the flag to go the opposite way of the stamp…. So I stamped and die cut two flags! I cut just the  banner part off of one, and turned it the other way and glued it to the pole. To add “mom” to the center I inked just part of a stamp from the Mother’s Day Zingers stamp set.

For the hearts and the flower centers, and the cute puppy nose, I added glossy accents to make them shiny! I put clear gems in the centers of the bicycle tires for a bit more sparkle.

I used Copic Markers to color all of the images in this little scene (colors are below). This looks like a lot of coloring, but the images are small, so it doesn’t take too long. It is really fun to be able to color customize your mom’s favorite flowers or your family pet.

A little bit of twine and a bow add another pop of a red accent.
