Happy Mother's Day From My Sheri Crafts!

I remembered reading when I was little, a Russian folklore entitled "My Mother Is The Most Beautiful Woman In The World".  I went home after school and told my Mom about it and up to now, I still tease her about being the most beautiful woman in the world.  I meant it back then and it still holds true up to now. :-)

Sandy, our DT sister gave us the directive on making a project that reminds us of our moms.  I went the literal route with this one.  My Mom loves pink, period movies, flowers and jewelry.  I thought the Paris Girl paper pack from Carta Bella would be a perfect backdrop to the stamped image from Hampton Arts/Graphic 45.  I added flowers from Prima, lace from The Paper Studio and font stickers from Echo Park.  The frame was cut using a die from Spellbinders, and inked using Cat's Eye ink from ColorBox.  I added Stickles to add shimmer to the dress.

Copic colors used are:
Skin: E00, E01, E02
Cheeks: R22
Dress: RV21, RV23, RV25

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there, and most especially to the Most Beautiful Woman In The World! ;-)

Arbor Day

April the 26th is coming close and guess what we're celebrating on that day? :-)  The title of this post gives it away. lol!  Anyhow, it's my turn to host the Design Team Challenge at My Sheri Crafts and I wanted a theme that celebrates nature and our environment.  I particularly love the fairies in this Graphic 45 designer paper, so I decided to incorporate this image in my card.  It's a happy coincidence that the paper from Basic Grey's Curio collection coordinates with it nicely.  I added some flowers and flourishes I made using Cheery Lynn Dies, Stickles and faux pearls using Viva Decor Pearl pen.  The flourishes were also colored with Smooch inks for a pearlized look.

I hope you will take time to join our challenge at My Sheri Crafts and let's all remember to care for our environment--it's our legacy to our children.
