My first card is for Mother's Day, which is fast approaching. This year my Mom's birthday actually falls on Mother's Day, so my daughter and I are "kidnapping" her and celebrating a "You Day"......we told her she can choose anything she would like to do all day Saturday (as Sunday, her BIG Day, we have a family Wedding Shower) and we will do it.   We'll all be on Cape Cod so the possibilities are endless.  We'll probably start the day by driving out to P'Town and seeing the sights, hot coffees in hand, a leisurely lunch at some local haunt with water view dining, and perhaps ice cream for dinner.  My Mother is all about having ice cream for ANY meal.....although I have never seen her have it for breakfast......yet.  :)  I'll report back on that afterwards!

For this card I used the Stampin' Up! set, Amazing Family. 

I created it for the JUGS #185 Color Challenge using the colors So Saffron, Pretty In Pink, Regal Rose, & Certainly Celery. Spellbinders; Standard Large Circles & Heart Circles.  Designer Paper is from DCWV; Fresh Floral.  GKD Products; Pure Luxury Card Stock; Lemon Drop, Creme De Menthe, Innocent Pink  Organza Ribbon.  Stampin' Up! Cherry Cobbler Ink.  Assorted Pearl Adhesives.
My next card was created for the Color Me Creative Challenge #66 All About Reds. 
GKD Products;  Pure Luxury Card Stock; Black Onyx & White.  A Year Of Flowers 2, and Blossom.  Black and White Gingham Ribbon.  Black Tuxedo Memento ink, various red Copic Markers, adhesive rhinestones.
My final 2 cards are for upcoming family weddings, so exciting!  Lots of showers, lots of weddings, fun family celebrations!!!  We are very lucky!  They were created for the Timeless Tuesday #217 Wedded Bliss Challenge.

I may have gone a little "Pearl Happy" on these cards, but it's such an easy way to dress up a card.  Inkadinkadoo On Your Wedding Day stamp set.  Images colored with various Copic markers.  Sentiment stamped with StazOn Dove Grey ink.  Sakura Clear Star, Pink and Silver pens.  GKD Products; Base card stock, Moon Lit Fog, Innocent Pink Organza Ribbon, Sentiment Stamp; Pleasant Plurals.  Layering weight card stock, black, white, silver by American Crafts.
The second wedding card uses the Happy Couple stamp by Stampendous V126.  Sentiment by All Night Media, 487DO4.  Memento Tuxedo Black ink, grey and pink Copic Markers, Sakura Clear Star and Silver pens.  Spellbinders;  Standard Circles, Heart Circles, Labels 8.  GKD Products;  Pure Luxury Card Stock, Moonlight Fog, Innocent Pink Organza Ribbon.  Assorted pearl adhesives.
Thanks for coming by it's so nice to see you!  :)
