Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all you Mom's today!

I have THE best Mom in the world. I really don't have enough words to describe how much she means to me or how much I love her. My Grandmother too... both women are the ROCKS in my life. So, today I am thankful for them... the women in my life.

Hope you get treated like the special Mom that you are !! If you need a good laugh, check out this video... it's one of my favorites!!


I'm still playing with my Copic markers and my airbrush system. I'm continually amazed at how cool these markers are. This card is truly shimmery. The base is vanilla shimmery white stamped with the flower from Lizzie Anne Designs with Brilliance Graphite Black down the side. The main image is shimmery white airbrushed with Y32 and YR23. I stamped the sentiment and then added some more flowers with creamy caramel classic ink. The popped up flowers I did on a separate piece of shimmery white. The lighter colored flowers I made by taking the R24 and directly coloring on the tip of the Y32 marker, then coloring outward from the center. It was hard to do.... but I did it! And, my marker is completely fine. AMAZING. The reason it looks much darker in the photo is because after I was done coloring and cutting out the flowers, I sprayed them with Autumn Leaves Glimmer Mist. I LOVE how they turned out. It's all matted on a Nestie.... thanks to my Aunt, who sent me some to play with. :) I think my Mom will love it. :)

Here is the recipe:

Stamps: In the Meadow, Wonderful Mother (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Paper: Vanilla and Shimmery White, Blush Red Dark Prism, Basic Black.
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Copics
Other: Circle Punch, Glimmer Mist, Copic Air Brush System, Compressor, Crafter's Tool Kit, Grosgrain Ribbon, Nesties, Cuttlebug, Scor-Pal, Vintage Brads.
