Mom & Mice!!!?

You can only get by giving a card with mice on it for Mother's Day if the mice are adorable like these are!!! I think that the Penny Black mice from the Margaret Sherry Collection are the cutest little things!! I have several stamps from her collection and I just LOVE them.

As I was looking at my calendar to see what cards I need to make (or catch up on) I realized that Mother's Day isn't that far off. And since (hope you're sitting down for this one) I'm all caught up on making the cards I need for this month, I thought I would flip the calendar over and be a bit head of the game. Shocker, huh?? LOL I have nothing coming up until Mother's day and then the month starts to get a little busier. Mother's Day cards will be a bit of time too. I only have one mother (no mother-in-law) but I do have some older friends that treat me like their child and I like to send them a Mother's Day card. I will be sharing them with you as I make them. Lucky you!!! LOL

For this card I just used markers and a blender pen. One of my favorite coloring techniques. Though I think watercolor paper would have been fun here too.

I used the Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug folder for the Pretty in Pink color. Oh and the main color and layers of the card are done in Regal Rose. Those two color go so well together.

The "mom" is from the Stampin' Up! "Holiday Blitz" set. I think I use that set at least once a week in my posts. The wording on it is "my mom" but I just masked off the "my" and stamped the "mom." It's all I really needed on the card. I thought about going on to the computer and typing up something but I thought I would just check to see what I had for stamps and go that route. I like it. It's a soft sweet Mother's Day card!!

This was a pretty quick and easy card to make. And this stamp was in my stash of stamps that I went through and have decided that I am going to sell. It will be in my store by the end of the week. It's called "Long Stem Cuties."

Now I must get back to my technique pages. I have one left to redo and the emails should go out tomorrow to those who are waiting for the redo of the 1st set!!! It will be nice to finally be done with them so I can get busy with the third set!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today. I hope you discovered something wonderful today,
