Happy Mother’s Day!

Hello all! I hope that all of the mothers out there are having a good day. We are having a quiet day. The girls and my husband gave me some cards and bought me some flowers for the front porch and the deck. One of my daughters is making dinner and we will have a relaxing evening watching a movie together.

Here are the flowers we chose. I think they are so pretty.

Here are our baby birds…they are growing! Its so fun to go out on the deck and to hear them chirping everytime their mom comes to feed them.

So, since it is Mother’s Day, you may expect me to post a Mother’s Day card! Well, you would be wrong! I made a Father’s Day card the other day and thats the one I will share today. It’ll be here before we know it.

I find it hard to make more masculine cards but this one came together quite easily for me. In the Scrapping For Less kit a few months ago, it was all masculine papers and stamps and thats what helped this happen so easily.

So, the paper that I used came from Scrapping For Less. I love their paper as it is a good quality cardstock and it has a sheen to it that I really like. I used a window die and chose some tool themed paper to fill in the spaces. I used the Sunny Studio “tool time” stamp set that came in the kit.

I colored the saw image with copic markers and added some enamel dots to finish it off.

See you soon!

Christmas Village card

For this card I used some Hero Art’s reactive ink for the background and sprinkled some water on it to get the effect that I love. I stamped the image and then colored it with copic markers. I wanted something… Continue reading Christmas Village card

Birthday cards

A week or so ago we drove up into the mountains to see the fall leaves…unfortunately most of the leaves were gone already but it was so beautiful anyway. We even saw a little snow. Here’s some pictures: Today I made a few birthday cards using a stamp set from Penny Black and some dies… Continue reading Birthday cards
