Handmade Cards by Barbara Phelps 

Barbara Phelps from Shenandoah, Iowa sent me these beautiful Happy Mother's Day cards.

Happy Mother's Day Card

Here's the Happy Mothers Day Card specially created by Barb Phelps.

Barbara skilfully used the tearing and layering technique for this lovely card.

She also embellished this beautiful handmade card with satin ribbon, gold studs and a shoe charm.

The colours combination is just perfect. 

What a Victorian beauty!

Message on Card Front:


  • a Shoulder to cry on
  • a Smile to count on
  • a Love to live on

Victorian Collage Card

Another lovely creation by Barbara from Iowa.

A Victorian collage card that is just so right for Happy Mothers Day.

Barbara used an old black and white photograph as the focus point and added buttons, charms, lace, mini gloves, a cutout image of a key and other aged newsprints to create this beautiful handmade card.
