HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY WITH SOFT PENCIL

Happy Mother’s Day to all!  Wishing all you Mothers out there a very special day and hoping you get to spend it with someone you love.  I have had a nice, low key Mother’s Day – just me, my oldest daughter and the dogs most of the day.  Hubby took the 3 younger kids out for most of the day.  Tonight my parents will be here to watch all the kids (and dogs, who are also my kidsSmile) so that hubby and I can go to dinner and not have to worry about cooking and dishes.  WOOT!!


So, I would like to share the actual card I am giving to my mother today – I made some other Mother’s Day cards the past couple weeks, but I decided on this one for my mom.  I have used this adorable image of Michu and his mom from SOFTPENCIL STUDIOS.  I have colored this adorable image with Copics and cut using Nesties.  I followed an old sketch from Sketches by Carly.  I sued papers from Echo Park and used Nesties and Lifestyle Crafts die for cuts.  Bazzill CS, pearls from Prima, lace from JoAnn and sentiment from Taylored Expressions.  I sure hope you like it!!

This is delightful; happy, bright, and sweet. The coloring is terrific and the way you used the embellishments sets it off to perfection! I'll bet it was a hit with your mom!
