Lily, Tweet and Bella and Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day! Yesterday was a busy day for me. I got to spend a lot of time with Nichole doing some girly stuff and getting my nails and then spent the rest of the day with some me time, getting my hair cut and playing with Hagrid, watching a movie and stamping. It just doesn't get much better than that!

I love that Susana at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD) is now carrying Pink Cat Studio stamps! I love this Lily and Tweet. Looks like they're all dressed up for some shopping and girl time. These sweeties are from the Lily and Tweet plate. So stinkin cute! I used the sketch that Suzanne created for SCACD's PCP Group. Stop over and participate because there's a sweet prize at the 3end of the month! I colored her with copics and used some Velvet Flock on Tweet and the center of the flower and Petals on them both. Love the shimmer on the Glitter Spring Stack from DCWV.

My Bellas have been sinfully neglected lately so I pulled out Veggiebella and had some fun with the PCP Weekly Sketch. I love the bright colors and the hope of fresh flowers and vegetables. She reminds me of my co-worker, Mary, who like my mother, can make anything grow. Heck, she's even got me keeping plants alive!

I hope that everyone has a very Happy Mother's Day! It's a wonderful celebration of the women who sacrifice so much of themselves so that all of us may grow and become the best that we can be. Honor them not only today but every day. I'm going to try.

Card Ingredients:

Lily and Tweet from Pink Cat Studio, Bella Baubles, Kaisercraft Pearls, Velvet Flock by Doodlebug, Petals, Glitter Stack Spring Collection from DCWV, ribbon, Veggiebella by Stamping Bella, Prisma flowers, stickles

Yesterday sounds like fabulous spa day! Lucky you! You must be beautiful! Sadly my bellas have been rejected for quite some time too, must be time to dust them off. Love both of these, sparkly, springy and pretty. Have a great day!

I love them both! The bling on the bella is fabulous. I don't think I have ever seen garden bella with bling before and it suits her :)
