I'm so pleased to participate in this Mom's Day Blog Hop (April 30 and May 1), for many reasons. First of all, I ♥ My Mother ... I ♥ Being A Mother ... and I Over-the-Moon ♥ Being a Grandmother.
And I have an exciting announcement to share with my blog followers. Well, it's exciting for me! It leads right into my project....
OK here is my news: I've been selected to be one of the members of Creative Pointe's Premier Design Team! It's a 4-month term beginning May 1, and it's my first DT. We'll be using great SVG cuts from Diecut Designers to make projects. DD's site is now open so be sure to check out their new and rapidly growing stock of SVG files for cutting on your electronic cutter.
I created my Mom's Day Blog Hop project using a Diecut Designers' file. Here is my card:
To make this card, I used the Flowerpot Trio file from Diecut Designers. This bright and cheery (and very easy to use!) SVG file includes the flower pots, leaves, flowers, and letters. While this is designed to spell M-O-M, you could easily use this file without the cut letters as a pick-me-up/cheer card or birthday card.
To make this card, I backed the paper-pieced trio on an image of a sun, clouds and grassy hill. I purchased this image from ClickArt Online ($39/year -- a real bargain!) and modified it to pixelate and soften, using PhotoShop.
Inside, the printed sentiment says: "Thank you for giving me all I'll ever need to blossom. Happy Mother's Day".
BLOG CANDY: You can pretty-up your Mom's Day card using EmbEllies' card pins like those shown here. These are handmade and luscious! The winner of this blog candy, picked at random by http://www.random.org/, will win 3 pairs of these cute babies!
