Happy Birthday, Mom!

Today is my mom's birthday. I would love to show you the card I made her, but...a-hem...she doesn't have it yet. Although I make cards all the time I have a problem getting them in the mail. My family and friends would probably think there was something seriously wrong if I actually got them their cards on time. Maybe next year, Mom! Have a great day anyway. Well, I still have something to show you. I made these 3 cards using the same designer paper. They all have very different looks to them. I personally like the one that is shabby chic with the little green/blue ribbon across the bottom. I paper pieced the flower pots. The designer paper lent itself very well to that. I just used markers and my aquapainter to color the images. The stamp set is from Stampin' Up! It is called Blooming With Love. It is one of those sets that I HAD to have and sadly, this is the first time it has seen ink. I have two crafting goals for this year. One is to schedule craft time more regularly. Starting this blog will help with that goal. The other one is to use the supplies I currently have rather than buying more. That goal will make my hubby very happy. Thanks for stopping by!
