My Crafty Week--Mother's Day Edition



Hello, Hello, and Happy Mother's Day.  I've got lots to share today.

First up, how about a Mother's Day card?  This one is in my stash, waiting for next year.  However, if my husband or daughter go 'card shopping' for me later today in my craft room, I might have the pleasure of receiving it later today.  Playing along at Addicted to CAS #136: Mom and Retro Rubber #86: Beautiful Flowers.  I used Tulip Time stamps, which are 2 years old.





PTI Make it Monday #221 had us was Masking Sentiments, and I pulled out some old stamps, because it was a Throwback Challenge.  I used a stamp from Label Basics to highlight my sentiment, then masked it off while I created a stamped background using flowers from Super Succulents.




I used the color challenge at Just Add Ink #408 to put together this sweet card with some die cuts I made when I was visiting with Tracey last month.






Anita's Inspiration Card

I loved the simplicity of Anita's festive birthday card at MUSE #265 and took inspiration from her color choices, the streamers, birthday theme, and the subtle diagonal stripe pattern on her card base.  Hard to tell in my photo, but I embossed my card base with an impression plate with diagonal lines.  I am also entering this card as Seize the Birthday, no toppings.




I loved the sketch at CAS-ual Friday's #199, and used their Mon Ami stamps for my card.  I am also entering this card at Addicted to Stamps and More #291: Anything Goes.






It was a big week for sketch challenges for me.  The challenge at Freshly Made Sketches #336 had me reaching into my Canadian stash for some more stamped images from my trip.



And, my last card is a very special card to me.  I was inspired to play along at Layton's Legacy Card Drive, and you can read all about this sweet little baby boy who is honored with this card drive.  We had this mood board to work from, and I was inspired by the woodland creatures in the lower right.



I used the sketch at CAS Colours and Sketches #271 for this card.



Well, that's it for my crafty update.  I'll leave you with a picture of the Mother's day card I got from my fur baby.....



Thanks for Visiting
