Recently on the radio they reported that in a survey of mothers, when asked what they would like most for Mother's Day - 80 percent replied "To be left alone!" LOL!
Sunday, May 13 is Mother's Day here in Canada. I sent my card off to my mother last week - am hoping she got it in time. My colour scheme fits for the CR84FN color challenge to use Mint, Blue and Neutral as seen here:
I had fun playing with some new craft items to make this card. The bird and birdcage were part of the Pink Paislee London Market Ephemera Pack that I picked up last weekend at Scrapbook Parade, a local store that I have not been to since they moved out of my neighborhood three years ago. I added some Rock Candy stickles to the bird to add a bit of shimmer, and distressed with Tea Dye ink. Mounted these pieces to a "ticket" die (Memory Box) on which I had sewn some Tim Holtz Idea-ology tissue tape.
These flowers were made using the Cheery Lynn Cuties die strips 1, 2 and 3. I bought them at my local stamp store, Stampers! and I talked about them in this post. Thanks to them, I am able to enter this card in the May Creative Accents challenge here to use handmade flowers. The Happy Mother's Day stamp is an Inkadinkado stamp from the happy Days clear set. A little lace and pearls and that's all, folks!
