Happy Monday. Here's my latest creation for Mom's Day cards. I haven't really been in the mood to color so this is more about the felt flowers. Today I learned that you can use a hole punch on felt. I never knew this before and wasn't sure if it was going to shred the felt or get suck in the punch. It work beautifully! When I add ribbon to flowers like this I would much rather tie it through the flower rather than glue it on. That way I know it wont come off, and I feel like I can get a better looking knot that way. I'm still a little unsure about the placement of the leaves, but it's too late now. Everything is already glued down.
Thanks for looking and have a great week!

I couldn't figure out what to title this post so, I went with the obvious. Card. After all, that's what it is. LOL! It took me a couple of days and some assistance from my sister to get this right. She thought it should have been oriented the other way, but I liked it this way. This is a cute TAC set, but I cannot remember the name of it. (if you know, feel free to post a comment) After I colored the image there was too much white space that I wasn't sure what to do with so, I used my puffer thingy that you put a marker in. It forces air through the marker and you get those little colored speckles. I must be getting old because I can't remember the official name of the puffer thingy either! Anyway, thanks for looking today and I hope you all had a great weekend.

Happy Friday everyone! Today I get to pick my son up from a week at Science Camp and I'm so excited to have him home. I got to see him last night and he looked so exhausted! Most things he enjoyed some, not-so-much. I know this has nothing to do with the card I've posted. I just wanted to share.
I made this card a while ago and was going to submit it for a TAC contest. Now that I've looked at it again, it's not contest worthy. Isn't it funny how you make a card sometimes and think it's spectacular then when you look at it again, it's not that great? I have lots of cards like that.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and thanks for looking!
