Happy Mother's Day to all you mom's and grandma's out there! Hope you are enjoying the day with family and being spoiled. I always get my fave breakfast in bed, wait for it................2 Dunkin Donuts Boston Creme donuts and a glass of chocolate milk, lol! (but I like Eggs Benedict too, hee hee but hubby wouldn't have a clue how to fix that). I will ALWAYS love donuts--it's my favorite treat, can't help myself! So far I'm having a great Mom's Day--my fridge's icemaker got fixed, my flower bed is almost done and I got a new 19" flat screen tv for the wall in my craft room---so I'm pretty happy today! Now to get hubby to hang the tv up--that could be a few more weeks on his schedule, LOL! I'm still waiting for my ceiling fan/light to be hung up in there--and it's been a year! We'll all have dinner together tonight but I actually have to spend the day working--gotta catch up a bit cuz' there is lots to get done. I just wish the weather was a bit warmer today and not so windy!
-I had a few of you guess that my daughter and her friend would make it all nite when they camped out, so I did random.org and came up with the: Winner of the Emma's Paperie Gift Certificate is my CHA pal Kim Howard of Basement Stamper, hee hee! Quite a few of you guessed all night and believe it or not they did--even surprised me!!
-And the 3 Winners of my Birthday Blog Candy are Tertia of Crafting Gran, Tina of Tigger's Scrap Place, and Mari Harpham of Trails of Paper. Email me at email@example.com so I can email you links to pick out your Viva Decor Pearl pen and Magnolia stamp plus your mailing address so I can get the rest of the goodies out to you!
Today I'm sharing with you a card I made for my mom for Mother's Day (surprise mom! lol--it will be in the mail cuz' I'm late with the card but not the presents)! This card uses the fabulous new "Day Dreamin'" stamp from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD--isn't it a beauty! I love the it and the way the breeze seems to be blowing right thru--my fave thing in the world is to have a breeze blowing in thru the windows and to hear the trees rustling outside. I also used the NEW Basic Grey paper "Capella"--isnt' it gorgeous (love those soft colors)--I used soft sky, dove gray and cream cardstocks to match it. Susana will have the Basic Grey in stock early this coming week.
Friday Sketcher's sketch for my layout, wrapped it with cream ribbon and topped it with a bow made with my Bow Easy. You can find these beautiful pearls here (in bliss) and those roses are Prima Cameo Roses--aren't they gorgeous tinged with color. I used my favorite scroll punch here to accent the flowers and a MS leaf punch for the leaves.
She's colored with Copics (duh right) and then I added flower soft to the window box (I used baby blue and the sweet pea mix together). I scored the shutters and folded them up so they were more 3-D. The window panes have diamond glaze on them and while it was still wet I spritzed the center of the stamp (I folded the shutters back because I wanted them to be solid, not sparkly) with Vanilla Smooch Spritz. The curtains got a coating of Shimmerz Buttercream paint after they were colored with Copics. In my Class 4 at the Color Me Creative Classroom I have a video that shows multiple ways to color "sheer items" like these curtains.
Hope you like this lil' beauty (hope mom does too)! Have a great Sunday!
