Hope everyone has a great weekend. Here in NY it is suppose to rain tomorrow. I know we need the rain but, I really don't want it on the weekend. They say Sun. is suppose to be beautiful for Mother's Day, I hope so.
This is the Mother's Day card I made for my daughter-in-law. I'm entering it in "There's No Other Like My Mother CTV Challenge #29. Your can make a card, project or anything you want as long as its for Mother's Day. Come join us it's a lot of fun.
My card was inspired from You Tube this time. I was looking for something different and I came across a Center Stair Step Card. I got all the measurements from a video from Jeanette at Happy Thoughts & Ink Spots blog. Thanks Jeanette for the inspiration. It's pretty simple to make.
The base card is White and the dark aqua mats were colored on my Cricut Imagine since I didn't have the right color to match my pattern paper. The pattern paper is Recolections from Michaels. My center focal point is a digi stamp I have and I colored it with my copic markers. The die cut is from Spellbinders and I think it's called Lace Doiley. I cut my sentiment mat from the Art Philosophy Cart. The stamp is from MCT stamp set. The pearls are from Martha Stewart.
Hope you like my card. Thank you for your comments, I love reading them.
Happy Mother's Day everyone,

It's time for another challenge over at Peachy Keen Stamps. This weeks challenge is Anything Goes, which means make a card, project or scrapbook page with any color you wish but you do need to use a Peachy Keen Stamp.
I made this card for my girlfriends birthday and since I used the duck from the April Stamp of the Month Set I thought I would enter it in the challenge.
My card is an A2 size in Tangerine which I colored with my Cricut Imagine since I didn't have that color card stock on hand. I really like the way it came out.
The pattern papers are from DCWV Citrus Stack and matted with black card stock.
I stamped the chick and flower from the April Stamp of the Month Set and colored them with my copics. I added some stickles on the flower to jazz it up.
The umbrella was cut from the April Showers Cart. at 2" and I also added dots on the umbrealls with stickles. The sentiment was from another PK stamp of the month set.
Hope you like my card and thank you so much for leaving a comment. I really enjoy reading them.

Hope you enjoyed your weekend so far. I am so ready for Spring, it can't come fast enough. Today was a beautiful day but still a little too cool.
I made this card for my friends birthday, but I'm also going to enter it into the Cardz TV Challenge over at Mary's. The challenge is to use 3 different pattern papers in your project.
Base Card A2 sz. I used my Cricut Imagin to color the card stock since I didn't have anything close.
Pattern papers were from DCWV Citrus Stack. cut at 1 7/8 x 2 38 " and the black mats are 2 x 2.5"
I stamped my focal point with the PK April Stamp of the month Kit and colored it with my copics. I cut the umbrella from the April Showers Cart. at 2". I used my clear Glitter Gel Pen to put dots on the umbrella and down the handle to give it some sparkle. I also did some on the flower. The sentiment is also a PK stamp from one of the other months (sorry I don't remember which one). I pop dotted the focal image also for some demension.

This card I also scraplifted from Mary at Cardz TV. Thanks Mary for the inspiration. My grandaughter is going to love this. I thought it was so cute. This egg was cut from the Art Philosophy Cart. and the chick and egg were cut from Create A Critter cart. The bling is from Michaels. The sentiment is a stamp from Stampin Up.
Thanks so much for looking.
This is also an A2 size. Blue pattern paper is from Recollections, the green dot paper is from DCWV Nana's Paper stack and the green and blue paper was paper I had in my stash, can't remember where I got it sorry. Some parts of the bunny was punched out and some were cut using the cricut. I rounded the corners with my corner rounder.
This is an A2 size card. Card base and purple mat is from Bazzill. Cloud mat is a stamp from Peachy Keen. The eggs were cut from the Doodlecharms cart. I glittered four of them and put a PK stamp face on the other two. Grass was cut from Plantin Schoolbook Cart. I added American Craft ribbon and the sentiment stamp is also from Peachy Keen.
Hope you all had a nice weekend. I have been busy making some Easter Cards for my grandchildren.
Here is the first one I made for my grandson. I used the bunny from the PK March Stamp of the month club. I paper pieced it with pattern paper from Recolections. The sun and grass is cut from Creator A Critter. My base card is cut from Birthday Bash. The white mat in back of the bunny are clouds I embossed with clear embossing powder and I outlined them with a clear glitter pen. It's hard to see in the picture. The fence is a MS Punch.

My card is an A2 size card with a red mat at 4x5.25" and a white mat at 3.75x5" embossed with the Cuddlebug Hearts folder. I cut a black strip and a red dot pp strip and adhered them together across the bottom. The sentiment is a tag cut at 2" from the Art Philosophy Cart. and the stamp is from Peachy Keen Jan. Stamp of the month club. I colored the little heart with my red copic marker. The big heart is cut at 2" and the red scalloped heart is cut at 2.25" both from the Doodlecharms Cart. I stamped the face with a Peachy Keen stamp (love that face) and put it on an Action Wobble. I didn't have enough black buttons, so I used some black pearls that I had.
