Happy Mother's Day and a card for Freshly Made Sketches Challenge

Happy Mother's Day!! I hope everyone has had a fabulous day!!

Mine was low key. Charlotte had to work and I played in my craft room. Char did write me the most BEAUTIFUL note tucked into a new water bottle. It was the best gift ever.

I will admit something here, though. I HATE Mother's Day. It isn't because I am not treated well but because I don't have my mother to celebrate with anymore. I am thankful that I had her for the length of time I did but I miss her more around this time of year.

Today I am going to share a card I created for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches #387. It was such a FUN sketch this week and I am so glad I had time to play!!

I blended oxide ink onto Bristol cardstock in Abandon Coral for my card background. I then die cut it with an MFT Blueprints die. I mounted it onto a coral cardstock base and then added some embellishments that were in my stash.

The flower elements were die cut using various flower dies, like Altnew, Spellbinders and MFT.

The sketch below is what inspired my card.

Another card that I created last weekend I created to use the free little stamp set that Altenew sent me a couple weeks ago.

I did fix the Nuvo drops that I used around the edge of the card. The sentiment is from Penny Black.

I love these snarky sentiments and wish I had the images to go along with them. I need to do some research!!

I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by tonight!! Have a FABULOUS night!!
