WOJ # 29...sketch by Katharina...Thanks a Bunch!

Happy Mother's Day everyone!!! I hope you are all having a terrific day!!! I am!The kids gave me the gifts that they made at school. Hannah made a cute little puppy from a face cloth, elastic bands, googly eyes, felt and some ribbon! It is really adorable! So, much so, that I think she is going to end up keeping it for herself...I just get visitation rights,lol!!! Kieran made me a card with flowers with little Popsicle stick stems that you can pull out of the pot. On them he wrote things that he will do for me like, tidy his room but the best one is "I will listen to you"...ah, bless him, smile!!!
Well, it is has been a quiet day for me playing in my craft room, the kids have been playing with friends and Chris is watching the World Championship hockey game between Canada and Russia! I can hear him yelling at the TV every once and while,lol!!!

So, I made this card this morning following the fabulous sketch by Katharina for WOJ Challenge # 29! I scored large the other day when I popped into Winners and found My Minds Eye 12X12 paper pads with 180 sheets in it for $16.99. I bought the Magnolia pad and Wild Asparagus pad! This paper is from the Wild Asparagus pad and I just love it!
I stamped Willow, made a mask and then stamped the basket on Prism Simple Smooth cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured it in with my Copics, sponged the edges with Distress inks and cut and embossed the image with my new Nesties. I used the largest Nestie die to cut out Willow so, I traced the outside edge of the die on cardstock and then cut it out to make the mat.
I used my new Flower Soft again (sorry but you are going to be seeing a lot of the this stuff...I just love it,smile!) to cover up the eggs in the basket now it looks like Willow was picking flowers!

I finished the inside too!
So, there you have it! Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek!

Your cards are always finished to absolute perfection, I love both inside and outside! That paper seems absolutely gorgeous, pity it's hard to find MME papers here. I have a few ones but since \I like them so much I tend to just hoard them cause I wouldn't be able to get new ones ...silly, I know. :D Gonna make a promise here to cut into some of them soon :D
