Designed 2 Delight Pail Of Flowers



Happy Mother's Day!

I hope you are having a wonderful relaxing peaceful day doing the things you love with the people you love.  

I thought I'd take this chance to share one last Mother's Day card.  I used a free digital image from Designed 2 Delight for their progressive challenge.  You can learn more about this fun challenge by clicking their link under challenges at the bottom of today's post.

My image is colored with Copic markers R85, R83, R81, YG61, YG63, YG67, YG11, BV0000, BV000, BV00, E25, Y19, BG0000, C1, C3, C000.  I also used a new Copic technique I learned recently for the grass and sky background.  A couple of Cuttlebug embossing folders and I'm trying to use more of my Spellbinders dies.  The sentiment is a rubber stamp by Hero Arts.

I also have some photos of the progress the guys are making on the block planting beds  in front of our house.






The brick work is coming along nicely.  It's starting to really warm up here too, the temps are starting to climb into the triple digits and the cement dries really fast!  I don't know how the guys work out there, I'm glad I don't have to.

One more thing...  we're having a Clear Dollar Stamps Blog hop Saturday, May 15th starting at 8:00 AM my time I hope you'll join us!

Have a blessed Mother's Day!
