Mothers Day Grizzell

One of the men I work with has 4 kids and he likes them to be represented on his Mother’s Day card to his wife. This year I went with butterflies. He has 2 girls and 2 boys and the girls are older…hopefully you can tell from the butterflies! I used Atlantic Heart Sketch #208 as my inspiration. The color combo I got from a color swatch at In Color Balance…I found a pin of it at https://www.pinterest.com/pin/309763280608472542/

I needed a flamingo Mother’s Day card for a grandma. I have been making her cards for the past 4-5 years and she always gets a flamingo. I tried to use sketch #3 of the Card Sketch Challenge but the flamingo was too big so it didn’t come out looking like the sketch too much. But it was my inspiration. I used foil paper in the background and cut the words out of gold paper.

Happy Mothers Day flowers hearts

My big boss asked me to make a card for his wife. When asked for ideals he said hearts and flowers. Well Karen picked Cardabilities #112 sketch for the bonus sketch this month and I thought it just might work…and it did! I had no ideal if she liked purple or aqua when I made this so I was glad when he told me she liked those colors!

My husband was shocked when I showed him this card…he said it was out of my comfort zone. I said it was but it was and I got to play with a bunch of my new toys. He really liked it and always encourages me to try new things or things that scare me (inks!!) This I will turn this into a couple wedding cards I have coming up!

I’m also changing out the saying and sending one to my friend to let her know I’m thinking of her…now to find time to make it!!

I have a lady whose mother loves birds and bluebird just happens to be one of her favorites! So she requested this image for her Mother’s Day card.
