Super Mom

Hi friends! Can you believe how fast the month of April is flying by? Mother's Day is just around the corner so I thought I would take the opportunity to tell my co-workers that I was selling cards for this wonderful day. I work with a lot of men so I took advantage that...most men are looking at the last minute for a card so I simply told them hey fellas, do you want to earn some brownie points with the wife? Let me make a beautiful Mother's Day card for you and you can tell her that you had it handmade for her." How special is that? Well let me tell you...there must be a lot of guys that need to earn brownie points because I have 45 orders for cards! Yes I am completely serious! Isn't that great! I am so excited and the best part is I got this great idea in plenty of time to make the cards and not stress out about it! In fact here is one of my cards. I have had this beautiful little Bella stamp for a few years and I have mainly used it for birthday cards but as I was sitting here one day thinking of card designs I remembers this little lady and thought it would make a great Mother's Day card. I am so proud of my coloring job. She was colored with Copic markers and I outlined her boots, outfit and cape with a white gel pen...doesn't that add a great little touch? I used a grey color for just a slight hint of color where she's standing. If you click on the image you can see the detail a bit better.

Thanks for peekin' in today! I love to hear from you! Hope you can get out and enjoy some of this beautiful weather!
