Dogwood Birthday

May seems to me a busy month for me when it comes to birthdays for family and friends.  I'd like to share this card I made last week.
My colors we blue and Cherry Cobbler and the paper was in my stash.  The image is by Gina K and I colored it with Copics, then ran a very old Creative Memories pen around the die before cutting is out with a SB die.  The Cherry Cobbler is embossed with the Lattice folder by SU! I just added two gold brads, clipped the corners and I was done.That is about all I have for today.  I have finally been able to get outside this week to work in the yard and I am enjoying our sunshine so much but tomorrow it comes to an end again with a forecast of more rain.  DARN!  Wishng you all a great day and thank you for stopping by.

Mother's Day

Hi Everyone,  No I did not fall off the face of the earth.  It's just seems that way.  I haven't been making cards at all lately until this morning.  I was helping friends pack up to move and then they stayed here with us for a few days while waiting for their "move in date".    Just no time for blogging so I apologize for not visiting anyone in the past few weeks.  I will try to get around to everyone  over the weekend.  I made a quick Mother's Day card for my MIL and thought I'd take a moment to share it with you.
I used all things from my stash, the papers, the sentiment and the flower.  I tried to punch a strip with a MS punch and my intention was to have about a 1/4 of inch in the middle of the double punching but I cut it very close as you can see and I ended up with this.  It doesn't line up but I kind of liked how it turned out anyway.  Thank goodness my MIL's eyesight is not what it used to be so hopefully she won't notice.  I'd like to wish everyone of you who are Mothers a wonderful Mother's Day.
