This is the card that I've made to give my Mom on Mother's Day. I've only just finished putting the finishing touches on it this morning. I cannot remember the last time that I got SO MUCH joy creating a card!! I almost didn't want to finish it, it made me THAT happy while making it. I played around with embellishing it until late last night...I had so many different ideas on what to use that I couldn't decide. I made tons of gorgeous cream colored felt roses to put on it; but thought they took too much attention away from the image so I only used one. I also was going to machine stitch on the paper panels but changed my mind and went for distressing the edges with ink instead. And coloring?!?! Well, I LOVED every second of it!! This is my first time using a Stampavie image by Sarah Kay and now I want them ALL!!!
Picnic Time and reminds me so much of my Brookie playing with her dolls. I love to watch her play, but if she catches you watching her, she will stop playing and makes a little grunting sound until you look away. LOL And let me tell you, she is the sweetest and kindest Mommy to her babydolls. She always speaks so sweetly to them, showers them with kisses, and plans their weddings?!?! LOL I think she will be a much better Mommy than me one day. :)
The DP I used is October Afternoon's, Thrift Shop. I finally found a way to use the music paper in this pad. And although it is mostly covered up...I LOVE IT!!! The postage stamp and die are both from Whimsy Stamps. And I know that I'm gonna have to hide them from myself, so that I don't use them on every card!! LOL
Really....I could go on and on about how much I love this card. Hopefully my Mom will feel the same.
