Blessed by Your Love

Hi friends! I'm popping in to share another card I made for the May Diva Inspirations challenge. For this one, I coated a piece of heavy white cardstock with gesso. Next I sponged on picked raspberry, worn lipstick and seedless preserves distress oxides and spritzed and dried and spritzed some more.  Then I dipped a baby wipe in some funky fuchsia paint and dabbed on, repeating until I got the depth I wanted.

The sentiment and flower are printed from the Favorite Mom DIGITAL Set and I colored the flowers and leaves with Cipics, then fussy cut and added some white gel pen accents.  I framed the sentiment with a doily die cut, then added both of the die cuts from the Lacey Trim Duo die set to the bottom to tie it all together.

I had some heavy cardstock scraps I wanted to use up from 12 x 12 paper I had cut down to 8.5 x 11, so the finished card measures 3.5 x 5.5". I love this size, as it still fits in a regular A2 envelope.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderfully creative weekend. And if you're celebrating Mother's Day, I hope you have a fabulous time with your loved ones. Yesterday was Muffins for Mom in both of my boys' classrooms. Kellan had so much fun giving me lessons on some of his favorite practical life work items... chair washing, coffee grinding (a VERY important skill to have), liquid pouring, and baby washing!  Unfortunately, the baby sat on the table with the mess from the coffee grinding while Kellan was preparing the bath, so it was DEFINITELY in need of a good cleaning! Haha.

Trevor's favorite thing to do is play sports and luckily his teacher strongly believes that any sugary treat like muffins or cookies should be followed by a good long outside recess. Smart woman! So Trevor was over the moon excited to get to play basketball with me. He and his buddy won 80 something to my measly 52 points. Somehow their baskets all counted as 3 pointers and mine were just 2 pointers! LOL
