Happy Mother's Day

Hi Everyone,

I'm here today to wish everyone a Happy Mother's Day!!
I have been working on my cards for a couple of weeks.  I don't know why that is.  It takes me so long to create and put things together.  I have a feeling it's because I don't have a craft room to call my own.  Well, that's the reason I'm going with. LOL!!

Here is my Mother's Day Card for family and friends:

This is a 5x5 easel card.  I got this idea on Pinterest.  It wasn't bad to create than I had thought.  I used Recollection 110lb white cardstock for my base.  I used some Shimmer Bazzil cardstock and also Crate Paper - Flutter, that I bought at AcMoore.  I punched out some Martha Stewart butterflies and I die cut some Memory Box and Sizzix butterflies as well.  The circle was die cut out with the Diemond Dies Nesting Circle set.  I added some flatback pearls from my stash.  The sentiment is from an Inkadinkado stamp set called Happy Days.  I inked up my stamp with SU Retired Sage Shadow color ink.

I hope you all like my newest card.  It was fun to make and I hope the mother's in my life like them too.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Enjoy your day because you deserve it.

Hugs, Tereese (Friday)

Spending Freeze Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Yeap, you are not seeing things.  I'm on a spending freeze this month.  I'm joining in on Cindy's Challenge from Cindy4kiddos on Youtube.  I really need to stop spending seriously.  So, I thought this would be a great way to use my stash and share some projects.  This way I'm forced to make something and share on Youtube and here on my blog (which I have neglected for some time).  We will also be doing a Youtube hop on May 14th.  Please stop by and hop along.  I will have more info next week.

Cindy has sent us some weekly prompts to help us create projects for this challenge.  This week is Black/White and wood veneers.

Here is my project for this week:

It's an A2 size card (110 lb Recollection Blk cardstock).  I used Authentic Pattern Paper called Irresistible.  Veneers are the polaroid and "hi".  I used flowers and bling from my stash.  Added a bow that I made with my two fingers.  I colored a mini gorjuss girl stamp with my copics.  I painted the veneers with FolkArt Metalic Sequin Black Acrylic paint and Joann's white Acrylic paint.

I love how this card turned out.

Thanks everyone for stopping by today.  I will be back another project next week.

Hugs, Tereese (Friday)
