Playing with Plaid

Today is the second anniversary of the day my mom recieved her angel wings and to honor her, instead of spending the day being sad, I spent the day being creative. She would have loved that. Matter of fact, if she were physically here today (she's always with me in spirit), she would have pulled up a chair next to me and helped me to decide what papers and embellishments to use or she would have wrinkled up her cute little nose if she didn't like something I chose. I loved my mom very much and miss her dearly everyday! I was lucky to have her in my life and I credit her for every creative bone in my body! She was the best! So to honor her creatively fun and whimsical spirit, I created a cute birthday card!

I was browsing through my papers and came across this fun plaid paper that I've been hoarding for quite some time and paired it with this cute flowery paper from MME. I chose this cute little elephant image, Ellie, is from Tiddlyinks (it's a free digi image) and I was on my way, but before I set about creating , I hopped on over to check out Jen's sketch challenge and the challenge on Crazy 4 Challenges. Everything just came together so easily and I love the results! Don't you?!!

I printed the image on watercolor paper and colored it with reinkers and a watercolor brush. The balloons were colored with Copics and glossed with glossy accents. The flowers were made using various flower punches! Easy peasy! Gotta love those sketches that Jen comes up with week after week. She sure makes card making a breeze!

I've been busy creating other stuff too, but I can't show it to you yet! That'll come later in the week!

Hope you're having a great weekend and get to do the things you love! Thanks for stopping by! TTFN

Hugs, Becky
