I know, I know....and a GiveAWAY!!! {Post #2: Card #2}

Well, after a very hectic afternoon, I was able to finish Card #2.....2 down, 2 to go!!!

If you are following along, you know that I have set a goal to get 4 cards done today, however, the true deadline to get them completed is Saturday morning.  I encountered a couple obstacles earlier today that are leaving me short on time to finish all sad  :O(

If you are just joining me....for each post (#1-4), leave a comment for an entry into my giveaway.  It is my way of saying thanks to those of you who encourage me to continue on, despite the "brick walls" that might land in my way.  I don't want to hit another hiatus (the last one continued on for about 2 months).  Crafting and blogging are very therapeutic for my soul and without those activities, I sometimes feel "stuck in mud".

The first card I finished earlier today was a Valentine's Day Card.  Go HERE or scroll down to see it and leave a comment for one entry into the giveaway.  You will find all the details about the giveaway there, too.  However, I didn't post any pictures of the prize because I really like surprises!

The second card I am sharing is for a Mother.  I know, I's not Mothers Day.  But does it really have to be Mothers Day to show mom how much you love her?

Here's my Mother Card.  I used core'dinations Pearl CS for the base, DCWV Luxury stack CS for the strip, lace trim, auqa core'dinations CS (swiss dot embossed) cut using Lacy Labels at 4 1/4" for the middle/background, chipboard flower by me&my big ideas, Miss Elizabeth flowers and swirls, moth-er stamp by studio G, brown ink by Darice, sticker behind and tags under sentiment is by MME - Stella & Rose collection, gel pen for faux stitching, MS Rain Drop corner punch, and pearls/bling/button all from stash.
Sorry for the poor picture quality.  It is 10:00 p.m. here in Ohio and the chipboard element in the center has a glossy finish

  1. Stamptacular Sunday - #128 Sketch
