I hope you all had a happy mother's day that celebrated it The weather here has been awful since I last wrote. It has felt like October instead of May. We have had snow, rain and cold almost everyday last week. I forgot to mention in my last post that we planted our vegetable garden last weekend. We were really worried about the plants surviving with this weather but we were able to cover them. Hopefully that helped. They say it is suppose to warm up this week. I sure hope so because I can't take much more of it. These are photos of the garden right after we planted it. I will take more photos to share with you as it hopefully grows.
Unfortunately the weather didn't help my mojo any either. I have been working on the card I am sharing today for almost a week. I finally got it done yesterday though.
This card was made for the current Peeps Challenge #7 that is hosted by Nerina. The challenge was to find a photo from The Creative Mint blog and make something based on it. This blog is already a favorite of mine so I was very excited about this challenge. There are so many beautiful photos to choose from so it was hard to pick just one. This is the photo I chose
This is what I came up with
My main inspiration for this card were the Dahlia's and the colors. The Dahlia's were made with the Delightful Dahila stamps and a watercolor Batik technique that I will be doing a video on soon. I cut the tag using my Cricut and Lauren Meaders Tag Your It Cut File. Then I stamped the tag with Background Basics Text Style and distressed the edges using chai ink. The Background paper is from the pretty pastels paper pack. The flourishes were cut from a die and angel wings glitter was added. A piece of violet Cabbage Patch Rose Ribbon from MemrieMare Etsy shop was added to the top of the tag. Some machine stitching and a piece of SU Orchid Opulence Cardstock finishes it off.
This card is very different from my usual style but I think I am liking it. I hope you do too. That's it for now. I hope to be back Tuesday with that video to share with you, Until then thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week!
