Mom-in-law Day

My mother-in-law is a country girl with love of flowers and butterflies so that was the look I was going for here.  I sponged and curled a bunch of edges.  To get the flower centers I used the large side of the crop-a-dile to get a small circle. I noticed I have been using retired sets lately.  I really need to clean out my setsa nd get them straightened out.  Free time is what I am lacking and if I do find some spare time cleaning is the last thing on my mind...I want to stamp!  If you are looking for any retired SU products please check out my retired store above ad see if I have something you might be looking for!

Happy Mother's Day

Wow, my weeks have been busy and to top it off I found out last week that I have pneumonia!  I had this project scheduled to post last week.  I finally figured out that I never saw it come through my e-mails and when I went to see why it had not posted I found that not only had it not saved any of my information, it had done the same to all 3 of the projects I had ready to go.  All was gone except for the image....not fun!

So this was the card that went to my beautiful mother for Mother's Day.  The flower was stamped with versa mark and embossed with Whisper White embossing powder.  I then used the re-inker and Aqua Pen to color it in.  I find it is easier to color before I cut it out...that way I do not have to stay in the lines. I kept it pretty simple so that it would make it through the mail and actually arrive on time.
