Hi all, its the 15th of the month so I’m sending out a friendly reminder that you can share your cards with us at Creative with Stamps, until the end of the month, if you have made a “Mother” themed card.

I was a little enthusiastic about stamping the little flowers from Pink Fresh Studio’s “Unicorn Dream” stamp set. So instead of having whimsical flowers artfully strewn around, it looks a little like a mess of overgrown wildflowers! Lol! Anyway i love this funny stamp set from Simon Says Stamp called “Mother’s Day Zingers” and I’ve used the sentiments from this set in most of my Mother’s Day cards this year, to give to my daughter’s friends. I stamped the black strip from Winnie & Walter on the right cause I realised my whole card was too much to the left…. oh well adds some contrast I guess!

Well I hope you enjoyed this card and that you’ll join us in this challenge. Thanks for your comments, they’re like little hugs to me!

Have a great day!

When CASual Fridays Stamps came out with this stamp, I knew I had to have it! This was so appropriate for what I’ve been going through the last year. Although I’m right in my menopause stage, I’ve never felt so young and creative, even when I was young(er)! Having pre-teens in the house help a lot, along with younger friends whom I do sports with… and party! Card making has also contributed enormously to keeping my brains young and creative, all the techniques I’ve learnt from the incredibly kind and supportive card making community in Blog land and it is because of card making that I started learning to draw and paint too.

I hand drew the chillies and coloured one with my Prismacolor pencils, and the other with my Zigs clean color real Brush. I fussy cut it and adhered it to a panel I cut with my fancy scissors. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark before heat embossing the Wow embossing powders. I stuck this panel to a red card and it was finished!

I had entered a similar card to a card competition last week, here is the original design:

Behind a great man


When I saw this stamp I found it so funny because so …true! Even though we are proud of our men, sometimes success goes to their head and we ARE in the background rolling our eyes! I got it of course and even bought some image stamps all the way from New Zealand which would go with it! But how to put that in a card and who could I give it to and for what occasion? Well I think I solved the first question but the others questions are still unanswered so if any of you have any suggestions…you’re more than welcome to propose a few!
