Here are a couple of cards I made to send to some special mothers in my life.
I decided to use a Betsy Bluebell image by Penny Black, colored with my ProMarkers.
I did alter the image just a bit. There was a butterfly and a bee above the watering can, but I was careful not to ink them up when stamping. I wanted to add my own 3-D butterfly (Fiskars punch) to add a little dimension to my card.
My sentiment was computer-generated. I also took a small leftover piece of ribbon, tied it in a single not and adhered it to the left of my sentiment with some Glossy Accents.
Inside, I covered the right side of my card with some thinner pink cardstock. This view also clearly shows the edge treatment on the front, which was made with some Spellbinders Borderabilities dies.
I also cut my image out with a stitched oval die instead of a circle.
I've definitely got to get my cards in the mail today or they'll be late!!
My big plans for Mother's Day are to spend some time in my flower beds, planting some annuals. We've had a bit of sunshine and warmer weather, so the landscape looks very green right now. In fact, I also need to start mowing the lawn.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
