More Mother's Day Cards

Wow!  I think I'm finally done.  I got all my cards made...I hope.  LOL!!  I made these cards for my sister's boyfriend's family.  I used lots of my scraps and metal.  The metal is from Ten Seconds Studio and I can't tell you how much I love their product.  It's great quality and so easy to work with.  I hope they love their cards.  Thanks for stopping by...till next time!

Mother's Day Card

Here is another Mother's Day card I designed.  I can't decide if this one is for my mom or not.  I have a few more ideas up my sleeve so who knows.  On this card I used a lot of scraps I had been saving and made the rosettes.  I used some metal from Ten Seconds Studio along with some alcohol ink to get the color I needed for the leaves.  One of my favorite embellishments is back...I used micro beads on the tag.  I love these things and they come in all colors so the ideas are endless.  Well I got more cards to make and decide which one to give my mom.  Thanks for stopping by and come back I'm sure I will have more cards and other projects posted soon!!

Mother's Day Cards

Here's what I've been busy doing...making Mother's Day cards.  I got a special order and was asked to make each one different.  I used the same stamp but what fun it was to create a different design for each one.  I used some great products from Maya Road, October Afternoon, Provo Crafts, Ten Seconds Studio and even used some Copic markers on several of my cards.  What a special day it is to celebrate mom.  I know I'm very lucky to have a very special mom.  Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my newest creations.

Mother's Day Canvas

I'm so excited!  This is my first mixed media canvas piece.  I made this for my mom for Mother's Day.  I hope she really likes it.  The phrase "I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life" by Abraham Lincoln.  I knew this phrase was perfect because my mom tells me daily she prays for me and my sister.  She has always wanted the best for us.  We couldn't ask for a better mother.  She has taught us so much.  I used ribbon trim and chipboard pieces from Maya Road.  My chipboard lady is from FabScraps.  I covered her in metal from Ten Seconds Studio and her skirt is made from old sewing patterns I found at the thrift store.  This was one fun project and I'm ready to do another one.  Thanks for stopping in and checking out my projects!
