Mothers' Day

 Hi Lovelies,

I thought today I would do a share of some Mothers' day cards I have made.  I made the first card today when I went to my LSS for some "me time" away from the house.  You know there are just some days you don't want to do the same old stuff.  I have stamped some very different images than I am use to, in an effort to challenge myself.  Although this image is similar to some of my stamps I really liked how it turned out.  Especially that gorgeous ribbon.
 This is a close up of another card that I made for Doug's mum.  I was inspired by this card by Alice.  I used watercolour pencils on watercolour paper, then used my Aqua-brush to blend out the colours.  I then used some of the butterflies from this post to the paper after I stamped it with a HA background stamp.  
This card I made with the same paper, just different stamps.  I really like the effect of the colours on the background.

Well I'm off to wrangle the snakes kids.

Have a wonderful week & happy crafting xoxoxo

All of these are delightful. I love the way your watercolour paper turned out. It makes a great background. Your first card is totally stunning. That ribbon treatment is quite incredible.
