WMSC#96 - Mom Cameo

Hi Everybody!  I hope you are having a great day.  I have been doing lots of yard work lately trying to get everything set up for a lazy summer.  I've been scrubbing the outdoor furniture and raking away all the dead foliage that served as mulch for my perennials.  I've been pulling out weeds too - which has been easy because it has been so rainy here.  I had to share this funny picture of the new puppy with you.  I saw she was at the back door, ready to come in the house when I took a closer look at her and saw the condition she was in. I couldn't help but start laughing when I saw that she was just covered in mud!  Her face sort of tells the whole story doesn't it?  I had to grab the camera and get a photo of my naughty puppy.  Sorry for the glare from the flash - I wasn't ready to open the door just yet!!

WMSC96Today I'm playing along with the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.  This weeks' design is by Waltzingmouse Design Team Member Kelly Schirmer -  AKA Gingham GirlThis one looked like lots of fun with all the room for embellishments.    I wanted to make a Mother's Day card so I immediately went for the Cameo images - they bring to mind tradition and family.  Normally when I make rolled flowers I go for pinks and reds, but my mom's favorite color is turquoise - so I stuck with that.  I rolled the flowers with paper that I stamped with a background image.  I made a short tutorial if you are interested.  You can see it here.http://akeptlife.blogspot.com/2012/05/rolled-flower-tutorial.html  You know I have to have some bling so I added a few gold leaves and a sprinkle of pearls.    I embossed the bottom half of the paper and lightly ran an inkpad over the paper to bring out the embossing.   The little twine bow and tag complete the card.

I appreciate your stopping by to take a look.  I hope you have a great day! 

Jeanne

(-: So sweet!
And your card is just amazing! (think I need to improve my English vocabulary of positive adjectives - so I can vary my comments a bit more - have a feeling I've used that word AMAZING many times before when seeing your cards)
Love this one too! Hugs, Karin
