A Mother's Day Card.

Good morning!
 
I have a new card to share with you today, for Mother's Day this time!
 
 
I already have a Father's Day card with giraffes (you can see it here) but I couldn't resist to this Mommy and Baby Giraffe digi stamp from Drawn with Character.
 
I colored with Copics and used a paper from Lawn Fawn as background, together with lots of butterlies.
They are sweet, aren't they?
 
I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Boy Voyage.

Bon Voyage cards are among my favourites.
Maybe because I like to travel or because I feel that every trip, no matter how far, is full of dreams, expectations and excitement.
 
I've recently made this card:
 
 
When I heard The Alley Way Stamps was closing down, I reached for my stamps and decided to put them in good use.
This plane is from the Priceless Joy set of stamps.
Paper is from Echo Park (Country Drive).
 
Even if I have no trip scheduled in the next future, this plane heading for the sun makes me dream of flying somewhere...

Little Bags for Your Easter Treats.

Here I am again with a creation for Easter.
 
It's not a card but something quite different:
 
 
I found these mini plastic bags in a local shop and their colors inspired me to decorate them with an Easter theme.
I reached for my Flopsy Bunny stamp from Eat Cake Graphics and colored the eggs matching the bag.
I also added a girly ribbon tied in a bow and decorated with a tiny button.
 
Colors are probably my favourite together!
 
I'd like to enter the following challenges:
Fan-tastic Tuesday Challenge # 124: Anything Goes + Make It Cute
QKR Stampede Challenge # 178: Yummy Yummy (Include a Food)
The ABC Challenge: B is for You Pick! (Bunny, Bag, Bow, Button)
 
 
 
These little bags will be available in my Etsy shop later today. If you are interested and you can't find them or if you want a different quantity, don't hesitate to contact me!

A Lucky Unicorn!

Good morning!
 
Here I am again with another new card:
 
 
I've been in their team for a while and my daughter is a great fan of Heidi's digis so it's easy for me to reach for one of these cute images and make a card.
This unicorn inspired me a Best of Luck sentiment, everybody needs some luck every now and then, right?
 
I made a very simple card: a light blue card blank and the image, colored with Copics. Then, my favourite embellishments: hearts and pearls!
 
Bright and happy!
 
I'd like to enter the following challenges:
Get Creative Challenge # 32: Must Include Hearts

This cute little chick is Dancing Spring Chick from Drawn with Character, colored with Copics and mounted on a background paper from Pink Petticoat.
I added lots of butterflies which make this chick even happier and an elegant ribbon decorated with a tiny button.
 
I opted for an Easter sentiment, but this card is perfect for many occasions: Mother's Day, Birthday, Thinking of You, Thank You and many more.

Sweet Owls.

Hello!
 
Spring is full of occasions to send cards and one of the most important is Mother's Day.
My mom loves receiving cards and every time I make a card for Mother's day, I think of her.
 
Today, I'd like to show you one of my latest cards:
 
 
I've had this digi from the Merlin and Blinky set from DigiStamps Boutique for ages. I've finally found some time to make a very simple card, not too big so it's perfect to be added to a bunch of flowers or to a chocolate box.
 
Aren't they sweet?
 
I'd like to enter the following challenges:
Allsorts Challenge # 349: Clean and Simple
 
 
This card will be available in my Etsy shop later today. If you can't find it, contact me, I'll be pleased to help!
