Mother's Day is coming...

I came up with the perfect gift for my Mom. I guess a lot of other people thought of the same thing because I was just notified its back ordered till July. Sigh....

Back to the drawing board. Anyone have any good ideas?

Well, here is a Mothers day card - just to get everyone in the mood.

I used the Geranium Cling set from Serendipity Stamps. Its colored with Copic Markers and I "duster brushed" the cardstock edges on the image and the sentiment with Tattered Rose Distress ink. The background paper is from K&Co and cardstock is Bazzill Hillary (one of my favorite greens).

I really like using that basket weave corner punch whenever I think I have too much white space around an image. I also added a clear Dew Droplet (those are fun huh?).

Tomorrow is Garden Party Day - the inspiration picture is HERE (scroll to the bottom of the post). So share all your spotted pigs and funky chickens!

Thanks for stopping by!
