Happy Mother's Day
















Happy Friday, I have created this card for Sharon's Stamp Simply, ssnotime135  It's a color challenge of purples and browns, there is a little inspiration photo to get your creative juices flowing.  I used the fabulous sketch from sketch girl again, I really liked it and was very happy with the way this one turned out.  I used the Verve set Because Of You, this is another favorite Verve set of mine.  I hope you can play along with us, check out the DT's fabulous creations.

I also want to share my card I made for the Splitcoast Fan Club Theme of Vintage, CT0410 this is really hot now.  I also wanted to use the sketch that Mary Jo offers on Monday's, TSSC117.  I really did start with this sketch, I know it is not exactly, but hey I have always been one to tweak sketches..lol....even my own!  I played along with  Jenny in her first Wee Memories Challenge, WMC1; it is an inspiration..  When I saw the photo of the umbrella, boots, and flowers I knew I wanted to play along.  I wish I could play with every challenge, everyday but it is next to impossible, there are so many challenge blogs out there.  I do like the variety and it keeps us motivated and moving forward, so for that I say thank you! 
My card today, has no stamping, can you believe it?  I used a quote that I found on line and printed it in Word and I must say I luv it.  I sure would like to have it in rubbah...hehehe.  The umbrella card is a flash card by K & Company, they are so adorable.  I used an old piece of a book page for a tab and added a button.    I hope you are having sunshine in your world today!  Enjoy.
