Happy Mother's Day

Oooops! I thought this had posted last Sunday but I guess not. My bad!

We have a brand new color challenge over at Sunday Stamps and the colors are perfect for spring.

For my card I used a SU set called Welcoming Window and it's coordinating dies. I used a stone background stamp to get a bit of a cottage look, using the 2 bottom colors in the graphic. Then I used the yellow and 2 blues from the graphic to create the rest of the card. I really like how it came out!

Make sure you head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT team created and then play alon g with us, you have until 6pm EST on 4/30 to join in the fun!

Hope Your Day Blooms

I'm stuck home getting over COVID ( I had a very mild case, nothing too serious compared to what others have dealt with) and today I finally had some energy to go into my craft room and create. I decided to play along with Freshly Made Sketches since the current challenge ends Monday at noon.

For my card I used an image from a retired Power Poppy set called Bloomin' Wonderful. I just love this simple image that captures the beginning of spring so perfectly (not that I'll see any color for a while, we still have 2 ft of snow at my place!). I colored it with copics and then used a die from MFT to cut the paper similar to how the sketch is. It's not quite the same but I think it's close enough that you can still see the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by!
