Happy Mom Day

Adventures in cardmaking here today.  This started out as a sketch and color challenge for one of the blogs this week...and it ended up like this...nothing at all like the sketch or color challenge.  What can I say?  Sometimes I go rogue like that!!!

The flower is from Petaloo, leaf die is from SU, sentiment is from Studio G.  I flicked some Twinkling H2O's on the background and it has a nice shimmery effect...which of course here looks like bile.
Sorry for the visual.

Thanks for visiting.

Mother's Day Cards.

Finally got some cards made.  My mojo has caught up with me, just in time for Mother's Day.

Here the patterned paper is from We R Memory Keepers, dry embossed with Anna Griffin Ogee Damask folder.  Vellum is from Bazzill Basics Paper, Sentiment is from Anna Griffin and flower is from Petaloo.

Next is a set of cards using lovely PSX orchid stickers.  These are out of production, but once in a while I am still able to find them at scrapbooking stores.  And when I do...I hoard them!

Sentiment here is from Studio G.

 Another Anna Griffen embossing folder.

The paper here is from Webster's Pages.

It feels great to get some cards made.  The sun was shining today, my daffodils are blooming...can't get better than that.

Thanks for dropping by,

Birthday Card

Where the heck does the time go?  It's inconceivable how fast it goes.
There has been very little creativity in the studio lately.  Today seems different.  The sun is shining, the daffodils are blooming and my mojo seems to have made a reappearance!!  

Today, I'm playing along with Poppy Sketches #2.  Love the sketch and absolutely lot the pop of colors they've chosen.

Here's my card.

The fabulous stamp is Hello Gorgeous by Penny Black.  I stamped in black and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I colored the stamp with LuminArte's Twinkling H2O's (Poppy Red and Autumn Skies).  The sticker is from SRM-Calendar Companion.  The background paper is Antique Script from Bazzill Basics.

Speaking of SRM, I'm entering this into their very first challenge on their new SRM Challenge Blog.  Have you checked it out?  There is a fabulous prize up for grabs and 9 days left in the challenge.

Thanks for dropping by,
