2 cards 2 challenges!

I have been busy making a couple of Mother’s Day cards this evening but I have been struggling and I’m not that happy with either of them!! The first one uses this weeks Mojo Monday sketch. I think it’s the colours I’m unsure about with this one. I have used trusty Daisy and she’s coloured with Promarkers.


This second card is for my MiL and uses the gorgeous Chick a Dee stamp. Again coloured with PM’s and glittered with stickles. I did have a bit of a revelation tonight though even if my cards didn’t quite turn out how I’d hoped. It may not be anything new to most of you out there and you’re probably going to all shout ” du-uh” when I say this, but you can colour your Primas to match your image with the Promarkers!!!! I must have spent half an hour scouring through all my various pockets of stash dotted around the house trying to find an embellishment that I could put on this card. Then it occurred to me that I could just take one of my Prima flowers and coloure it with the PM’s. EUREKA! Are you all wondering why I have only just realised this?

I think I may need to go to bed!

Oh, almost forgot, this is for the Sugar Bowl challenge which is Mother’s Day.

Night night.

  24. Both of these cards are beautiful. IMO the colors go perfect together. But I know if I have a special picture about how a card should look and it is not coming out this way I don´t like them myself. So be asured that they are both wonderful – and the recipients will adore them.
