Hi everyone! 

Today I share with you two cards that I have made using Graphic 45's Botanical Tea papers.  The card on the left is a 5 X 7 card using the 12 x 12 papers.  The card on the left is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 and it uses papers from the 8 x 8 paper pad. 

Instead of using butterflies I used a oval punch and stamped Happy Mother's Day.   Who know, I may still add a butterfly or two :)

Have a great day everyone and God bless!

Mother's Day Iris

 Hi Everyone! 

Here's a Mother's Day card I just completed.  The iris stamp is from Flourishes Stamps.  I've got admit that I used the same Copic colors from a card I found on Pinterest.  Other than that, the design is mine.  I've used a Taylor's Expressions sentiment.  I used a Spellbinders die cut from gold mirror paper.  The little heart under the sentiment is one of the pieces from that die cut.  

Copics used: 

B21, B23, B24, B26,, B28, B29
Y13, Y17
G40, G46, G85, YG91

Take care and God bless!

Verona bouqueet

Here's another card for Mother's Day.  I've used Stampin' Up Pretty in Paper.  The die cut is from Memory Box and is the Verona Bouquet. 

I didn't plan on putting the pearls on the upper and left corners.  However, I had to cover of an in smudge :). 

Have a great day and God bless!

Pretty in Pink

Oh my, where has time gone? 

I'm sure we just celebrated Christmas and now it's almost Easter. 

A lot has been going on with me.  I decided to join the Catholic church and I've been spending Tuesday and Thursday taking RCIA classes. 

When I went to St. Patrick's parish, I saw in their bulletin that they wanted some baby blankets to give to infants who are being baptized.  It's been a long time since I have knitted, but I bought some new needles, yarn, and found some patterns I liked.  I've contributed many of the blankets to St. Patrick's, but I also have decided to see if they will sell at some craft shows I got coming up.  I'm now working on my thirteenth blankets.  Now you know why I haven't posted cards and I just haven't been making them. 

Now I've received an order for 16 Mother's Day cards.  I also want to make baby cards to sell with the baby blankets and I also want to make some Thank You cards for the RCIA team at St. Patrick's. 

So today, I've gotten busy making cards.  

Here's a card I just completed using stamps from Stampin' Up's Simply Sketched set.  The card is one I saw on Pinterest using the same stamp set.  However, I switched the sentiment from Thank You to Happy Mother's Day.  

Take care all and God Bless!
