Happy Mothers Day

It's been a beautiful warm Spring day perfect for a drive and visit to my MIL's on Mothers Day. Yesterday evening was spent with my Mother crafting until about 3am.  Yes ... I did say 3 am and oddly enough I was the one that was tired and ready for sleep?!!
Lots of lemon Tea, chatting and crafting supplies everywhere!
Created this little tag using a sewing stamp set's sentiment  and this sweet image picked from Ma's stash. The tag was just cut with scissors and pleated a ribbon using the sewing machine.
Thanks for stopping by, Happy Mothers Day:)

Thinking of you

Been water coloring or at least trying to. There are two different types of watercolor paper, Cold press which is very textured and that's what I've used here. Also there's  hot press which has a smooth finish and is good paper for fine detail.

Something different and it was fun to play with the watercolors :)
 Sending these flowers to all the Mom's out there. Happy Mothers day!!

Sending Smiles your way

I came across this sweet Hero Arts stamp set while organizing my stash called  CL444 Sending Smiles. The background is created  using Copics for the grass and sky details. The ribbon is from May Arts and card stock from Michael's.
 I left this card along with these lavender rosettes on a fellow scrapbooker/friends desk at work this morning. Hope it made her smile :) !!
 We went  to Curry's Art Supply on the weekend, Lots of eye candy.... beautiful hand made papers and yummy Copics :) Such fun to look around and get inspired!!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!

Forever in my Garden

 Been creating a few ATC's this week. I love this sentiment and thought it could be a nice compliment to this big Hero Arts flower.  Prismacolor pencils and Tim's walnut distress ink for a splash  of color.
Used an ATC stamp for the back which really comes in handy when creating multiple editions.
Recently decided to stamp out all the clear and rubber stamps into a journal to help organize and also help decide the stamps used for a project.  While I really like the idea its turned out to be  a really big task...
The journal is an old Address book with a sweet front cover. I plan on numbering the tabs and sort by specific themes and seasons.

Trying to stamp a few images each morning over coffee and after dinner too.
 Have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by :)
