Mother's Day

Getting started early. Wanna bet that I still mail them late? LOL.


Stamps: Rose(Raindrops on Roses), happy mother's day (Impression Obsession)
Coloring medium: Water Color Pencils

I actually painted this rose for a bulletin board several years ago. My husband (and I ) had a young married couples Sunday school class. We had a seminar or something that required a wedding themed bulletin board. Once the event was over, I took down and saved all the components. I found them in a box last week. I discarded most of the stuff (I'm really purging, yeah!), but I saved this rose.

happy mother's day (Impression Obsession), all other stamps (Stampin Up)
Coloring Medium: Prismacolor Pencils
This is the card I started when I did the tutorial.

On a Personal Note:
I just got back from my road trip. One of my girls is at home, but the other one isn't going to be able to come. :(

What did you do with your extra day?

These cards are stupendous! I am very grateful that you put a link to the tutorial.

I'm sorry your other daughter didn't make it home, but trust that you will have a good time with the one that did. TFS.

Hi Jacki,
Lovely card - it is really going to be appreciated. Hope you have a lovely Mother's Day.
I was working all day today, but I remembered your previous post about leap day and started the day taking a few photos of my kids, even a couple in the school line. And have just taken a couple of them in their PJs and in bed! I'm now thinking of doing a mini-book to capture the moment!

Gorgeous card. And you're right, you won't get it mailed out until Father's Day! LOL

Talk to you soon.

Wowza, that pink rose card is just awesome! Way to get a jump start on things!

The rose is lovely, Jacki; I have an outline rose similar to that which I have almost gotten rid of, but seeing yours, maybe I'll play with it...

Re: mother's day card: I made this year's card about a year ago, so I'm way ahead (okay, so I made it for last year, lost it, finally made another one (just in time!), then rediscovered it around December...

Sarah, I think we are twins separated at birth!

Jacki, you did a wonderful job on shading on the rose. It looks beautiful. You put me to shame--I finally did two bday cards today (3/2) for birthdays that were on 2/17 and 2/18. Tomorrow I hope to do two for birthdays on 3/4! LOL!
