Mother's Day

Hi all! Have you been busy putting together Mother's Day cards? No? Well you still have time! Get to it!
I finished these a few days ago but have yet to get them in the mail- that's always my problem. Better late than never though! First, one that started with Papertrey Ink's Rosie Posie set. I stamped them and then used a dark red copic to give the flowers some depth.


 The next one is my favorite. I used Studio Calico's City of Lights kit and added a few bits from my stash- the Basic Grey brads, the label is from a very old October Afternoon sticker sheet, and the flower is a flattened SC notions flower.


 I made the last one with the doily I used as a mist mask on my Mother's Day page from last post. It was still a bit soggy so it tore a little bit with I was adding adhesive but it works!


You can see I used the same pink washi for all three cards but they each have a bit of a different feel. And, apparently, I only have this single mother's day sentiment in allllll the stamps I own so maybe I need to fix that for next year!
Anyway, thanks for coming around today!

Bad, bad blogger.

Sorry friends, life has been one hell of a rollercoaster lately, but I'm sure I don't have to tell you that. With summer coming up fast, it seems like the perfect time to tackle those projects that have been on the backburner but somehow I've managed to try all of them at once. It's not working out! haha
Anyway, this week on the Pebbles blog we're celebrating Mother's Day! Here's my contribution- an ode to my ma.


I really love these pink colors against gray- they really shine! I mostly used the Country Picnic line for this page, which you can now buy directly from Pebbles' new and improved online store! You can also shop all of the American Crafts brands- which include Crate and Studio Calico.
And here are some cards I made last week that I forgot to share:



I cut the circle and girl with my Silhouette which made for a really quick and easy way to drop a line to a friend!
Thanks for dropping in!
