Happy Mother’s Day

Hey everyone!

Just a quick post tonight featuring another card I did for Mother’s Day – which is coming up in just a couple weeks here in the UK. I used the color combo from Color Throwdown – orange, green & blue.  I used the same sketch as the post below – I have a few more fun color combos with this card for Mother’s Day to share later…

This is also for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge – Mother’s Day

Thanks for stopping by!

Delightful Doilies are sooo delightful!!

Its been a super busy weekend and we still don’t have a computer at home. Luckily my husband brought his computer home from work so I have a chance to do a quick blog post.

I have really enjoyed the week of honouring over at Joy Taylor’s blog and she has posted a challenge for her readers to do the same. There are so many people I get inspiration from, but I really love Dawn McVey’s work and chose a card from the Love Birds release in December. I decided to do some Mother’s Day cards and did a lot of variations on color. Here are my creations:

Sorry for the dark photos – couldn’t get any good pictures of these with good natural light. The first card uses the new Papertrey Ink color, Royal Velvet – it looks very blue here, but it is a beautiful, vibrant purple and I can’t get enough of yellow & purple at the moment. In all these cards I have used the color that is 1 shade lighter for the layer on Mat Stack 3 – it is hard to see in the picture, but very nice in real life!
Here is Dawn’s card that I used as inpsiration:

Thanks to Dawn for being so easy to ‘honor’ and thanks to Joy for this wonderful challenge!

Mother’s Day Flowers

So, in the UK Mother’s Day is April 2nd and I’m busy making cards for friends. I love making mother’s day cards because I really love my mother! I think even though these are for someone else’s mom, I probably make them with my favorite person in the back of my mind. And, I can pull out all my favorite floral stamps as I think moms generally go for that stuff!

I remember seeing this sketch over at Karen’s blog, The Sweetest Thing, and really was struck by it & wanted to play along. Alas, time was not on my side. But, I’ve used in anyway for my cards today. Got to use lots of yummy new My Mind’s Eye & Crate Paper on these cards. Apologies for the bad pictures as well!!

This last card definitely reminds me of spring & also uses some green, so I’m entering it into the current challenge over at Wee Memories.

Thanks for stopping by!
