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.

1) May Inspirational Card Challenge – Product: foil
2) May Card Sketch Challenge -sketch #3 – original Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #240.

Cardstock: Bazzill (Patina, Petunia)

Colorful Mothers Day

I have a standing order for a mom that loves rainbow colors. So some years I do actually rainbow colors and other years I just do other bright colors. This year I picked the color category for the Card Inspirational card challenge with her in mind. I then used a card from Cardiographer and one from Simon Says Stamp Blog as my inspiration.
I also got to use new goodies I had just ordered after being influenced on here that I needed these goodies!

This is my 2nd card with sketch #1 from the August Card Sketch Challenge. I saw this sketch and thought it would be perfect for a friend of mine who just became a grandma for the first time. The colors on the card are the colors of the nursery. I wanted a fun happy card cause that is the type of grandma my friend will be. Now the card didn’t come out as cute as I pictured but she loved it so that is all that matters. And I finally used my Sew Easy that I have had forever!!

There seems to be a lot of people having babies so I have several request for baby cards.

A lady asked for a “Congratulations on becoming a Grandma” card that was to have a baseball/cardinal theme. But has now turned into more of a birthday card for grandma. I have sent her the 3 cards but not sure email is cooperating so I’m going to post them here so she can see them and pick which one she likes best. Then we will work out the wording.

Option #1:

I made this card for a guy at work that ordered a Flamingo Birthday Card for his grandmother.

You can’t tell in the photo but the flamingo is pop-dotted on top of another one to give it a 3-d look.

I sure hope he likes it!
