Mother Day Wishes

My laptop computer is still in the shop - I promise I am going to catch up with everyone as soon as I get it back. I feel like a fish out of water - seriously!!!

This week's Squigglefly challenge is all about Mother's Day. Once again I used Blow Me A Kiss by Lynn Stansbery - one of my favorite Squigglefly images.


I was going with a lot of texture on this card and I was also trying to experiment with cardboard. One of my panels and all my flowers were made with left-over pieces of cardboard. I am trying to come up with some ideas to share at work with how to engineer some thank you cards and other items with things at hand. I hand cut them and I think they came out nicely. I know my Mother will love this - she loves this image and loves anything made with recycled items.

Make a Mother's Day card and join us at Squigglefly!

Hugz!

  14. You Do inspire us Nancy! I love the recycled flowers--What a NEAT idea! I think all the "chunky" layers just make the soft image of Lynne's girl pop off the card! TFS~
