Happy Memorial Day!

Hello, I hope you all are having a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend!

I have been nursing a cold the last few days. While I really wasn't feeling too well, I needed to get out of the house. So, yesterday, we went by the zoo briefly, for only about an hour, and to get something to eat. I also stopped by one of my favorite scrapbooking stores, and my husband purchased me a compressor for my copic airbrush system. I am so happy, and can't wait to use it. I have been using the canned air, up until this point.

I will definitely be having a great summer vacation making new cards with magnolias and airbrushing...

Happy Mother's Day to all...

I hope that you all had a wonderful Mother's Day. I enjoyed breakfast in bed, and a day just around the house...I took an afternoon nap, and spent sometime making cards today, as well as working on capias, and boutonniers. There are two types of Capia's shown. They are not quite fnished, I am waiting for the ribbons with the bride and grooms name and wedding day to arrive, to add them as well. I also posted a picture of the table cards I made. Please see pictures below of artwork.












The card, is the one I made for my own mother for monther's day. Inside the sentiment by Stampin' Up! (SU!) says "Wonderful Mother", with a message from us. I used mostly SU! cardstock, Canson Watercolor 90lb. Paper for my Magnolia image. Side note, I almost always use Canson 90lb. or 120lb. I colored with my copics, and added some stickles on the dragonfly wings and the collar of her shirt. The yellow trim is from a Martha Stewart punch.
