Mother's Day Cards

Here are the cards I made for my two wonderful mothers. I used a card from Prairie Paper & Ink as a sketch and went from there (she makes truly beautiful cards so check her out). The images were free images I got off the web from clip art services (unfortunately it was some time ago so I don't remember the specific site). I have blurred out the insides as they are personal messages.  All the coloring was done using my Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils.

This is the card I made for my mother - so it has the girl giving flowers.

This is the card made for my husband's mother - so it has the boy.

I have submitted these cards to:
Oozak Earthtones Challenge
Craft-Dee Bowz Handmade Bow Challenge
Make My Monday Green and Yellow Challenge
365 Cards Back to Nature Challenge

Twilight Book

This book was created for my sister.  She loves the Twilight books/movies.  I used a tutorial found on  - this is a very simple book to make, the real time comes from doing each page.  The specific one I used is titled "tutorial for a Coin envie mini page assembly with lots of space".  Even though this book took me forever to finish, I really enjoyed the process and learned so much along the way

Friend Plaque

This is a plaque that I made for a great friend in the US.  She asked me to make something for her and I wanted to make something that was unique and special so I decided to do all the "art" myself.  I first made the letters on the paper then filled them in with Zen tangles.  It was a lot of fun making this and I hope that she enjoys it.

Here is a picture of the front and then close-ups of the letters:
