OK...well....it is Tuesday, so..no nascar til friday...guess it's time to get scrappy!!!
My mom's birthday is tomorrow, and I had the PERFECT stampset to make her card! She always has the most beautiful gardens, vegetable and floral. She has a green thumb that i am green with envy over! I just can't seem to keep stuff alive, let alone have plants thrive the way they do in her yard! The only time I even came close was when I lived in Pittsburgh and she came over the help me!!! So....when I got my Close to my Heart order last week and Ms. Gardener was there....I just HAD to use it to make her card!
I stamped the image of Ms. Gardener on white cardstock, and then patterned paper. I cut out her pants and hat from the patterned paper to create a paper pieced image. The rest of her was colored in using my Close to my Heart watercolor pencils, and blended with our blending pen. The sentiment and flower pot are also from the Ms. Gardener stampset, and flower pot is also colored with watercolor pencils.
I am VERY happy with how it turned out, and hope she likes it when she gets it. My mom is visiting my sister in Charleston, SC right now, and won't get home til thursday, so she will have her bday card a day late. Funny that keeps happening!
