Can you believe May is almost half over? This is crazy! My time is just slipping past me!
I've got a card here to share with you. It's my Mother's Day card for my beloved mom. I keep her cards CAS. I think this is a little over done but I couldn't make myself stop! lol I used to go all out with her cards but after the first time I saw her rip the envelope open, peek inside for money and then toss the card aside... never more! My mother is sadly... very materialistic. I think it stems from her growing up in a large, poor family. Not sure... it's not the type of things I discuss with my mother. My mom will be 94 years old on May 26th. Haha... when I was little, I thought my mother's birthday was a holiday because it fell close to Memorial Day and businesses were closed. :)
So here's my card:
Ssooo... what do you think of the balloons? I colored them from top to bottom and I think I started out pretty good. It got harder as they overlapped more and more as I went further down but I think I did OK for my first time to color balloons "transparent".
Isn't this the sweetest image?
I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
I am a follower of these blogs. The blog layout I use does not allow me to list challenges on a sidebar. Instead, I display badges and / or links here.
This is the recipe I used:
Freebie Image from The East Wind
Colored the image with Copic markers
Daisy border punch from Michael's Recollections line
Pearl beads, card stock and specialty paper from my stash
I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day either visiting with your mom or that special lady you hold dear to your heart or your children. I plan to visit my mom tomorrow because I will be staying home all day Sunday on the off chance my estranged daughter might show up. I wouldn't dream of missing that! We shall see!
Thanks for stopping by!
