Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #384

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week!  We've been having the craziest weather here.  It does not feel spring like at all.  One day it's freezing and rain and then the next day is crazy warm.  Then back to cold for a week.  I am totally ready for warmth whenever Mother Nature is ready.  Hopefully sooner than later!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  Our hostess this week is the amazing Linda Callahan!  Linda always makes such creative cards.  She also has some amazing stories that I love to read and giggle about!

Linda's sketch stumped me for a bit and then I decided I had better tackle my Mother's Day cards.  And I totally know my sweet mom is reading this and now she knows what her Mother's Day card looks like.  Sorry mom!  I hope you still love me!!!  I decided to colour the flowers with my Stampin' Blends.  I probably will never get into Copics but I can handle the SU markers!  I don't have to think too hard when using them! I tried to pull an Amy O'Neill with my thread but it didn't turn out too well.  I tried though!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Smokey Slate, Granny Apple Green
Patterned Paper: Reverse Confetti
Stamps: Secret Garden, Crazy About You
Ink: Memento Black
Other: Stampin' Blends, Secret Garden Dies, Silver Thread, Frosted Epoxy Droplets, Stitched Rectangles (Lil' Inkers), Subtle Texture Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the gorgeous cards the Design Team has created for your inspiration.

Have a fabulous day!

  3. Very pretty Mother's Day card. Love the pretty flowers and the gray embossed panel is lovely.

  4. It's always nice to put some spring into a card when mother nature doesn't cooperate with the weather! Your flowers and the colors are so pretty!

  5. Beautiful card - love the bright, spring colors!

  6. This is such a pretty, happy Mother's Day card! I love the color combo and your thread looks fabulous.
