So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Enjoy the Day -- Happy Mother's Day

This is for Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge -- clean and simple one layer card. This was a challenge for me because I LOVE layers! :-))

                                                   Here is the spot to enter that creation!

I used white cs by GKD...folded in half and that is the one and only layer! I embossed it with a Paper Studio embossing folder Whimsy Frame and it was the perfect size for the Mother's Magnolia stamp set by MFP a Heinrich Company that is just coming out for March! What a fun stamp set to work with!

After embossing I chalked the background and the embossing folder with yellow chalk from Chalk-Ah-Lot and stamped the image in the middle and the saying with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Then colored with Copics and highlighted with Sakura glitter pens and added 4 pearls and a bow. The inside has NO dp added...only stamped with 2 smaller magnolias and the sentiment! Again colored with Copics.

Hope you can get your creative fingers going and make that clean and simple one layer card!

Enjoy the Day in yellow!

Happy Mother's Day!
