Happy Mother's Day to all Moms

I hope all the moms get to spend a lovely day with their children and grandchildren today. If you are far apart, I'm so glad we have so many ways of reaching out by Zoom, Facebook, Face Time and by all other means.

I have been a bad blogger this past week as well as a bad stamper. May is such a busy month for our family and believe it or not, I have been out and about after a year at home. I was out almost every day this past week and spent hardly any computer time. I haven't made any cards either and I need so many right now. I will be gone today and Monday, then I have to get busy so you will be hearing from me. I'm not used to all this activity and have had several naps during the week too. It seems if I get in the car and go somewhere the day is shot.  I will be with my whole family today for the first time is over a year. I wish it wasn't pouring rain and storming but it won't stop me.

This is a card I made for a special friend I made through blogging. I sponged DI in places over c/s, then stamped with a Lavinia stamp called Flora Spray. The sentiment was layered several times over white c/s for a shadow and a few black sequins were added. 




Be kind to one another.

  3. your floral spray stamp looks wonderful on your blended background.
    Our restrictions in Vancouver got a little tighter. We're still trying to get the vaccinations out. It must be so nice to visit in person with family and friends ♥

  8. My week was the same last week, Brenda, and it's exhausting after being so quiet for so long! It was all good though and I got to spend time with children and grandchildren over the weekend. Love how you've inked up the background and used this stamp! The black die cut sentiment really pops against the bright background! Looking forward to Wednesday!
