Oh my, I can't believe it's that time of the year again. I'm just so thankful that my mom is here with me this year because this way I can celebrate Mother's Day with her :-) In keeping with the subject, let me to tell you about the fun challenge this week at Hiding in My Craft Room, which is all about Mother's Day. You can make any project of your choice but it has to be about celebrating Mother's Day.
Our sponsor this week is Pickled Potpourri who are also sponsoring this week's prize. One lucky winner will receive a $7.00 gift certificate to their store. How wonderful is that? Once you take a look at their store, you won't want to leave without getting an image or two. They have a wonderful selection of images for all occasions.
For my card this week, I used the Tulips Image. As you all know by now, my hubby is Dutch, so tulips are very much a part of our lives.
My mom also loves tulips so I thought this the perfect image to use to make her card. I went for yellow because it is such a cheerful colour, but in this case you can pretty much use whatever colour you want. The cardstocks are from the Paper Studio. I used a MS punch around the page punch for the pretty border. Coloured in the image with copic markers and added a few gems from my stash.
The sentiment was computer generated. Since I don't like to put gems inside of my card because I feel it makes them bulky, I stamped a few butterflies instead. That was it, one Mother's Day card done.
Now, if you don't want to miss the fun of our challenge, you will make a project, any project, for Mother's Day and link it up to our challenge # 147 by Saturday, May 3. Speaking of May 3, I would like to remind you that it is National Scrapbooking Day and we will have several challenges for you to play along. There are some awesome sponsors with some awesome prizes to give away.
Well, my crafting friends, I think that this is it for this post. I wish you all a wonderful weekend.
Till next time,
