Mother's Day

It's hump-day already. I can't believe it!!
Do you know what else is almost here? Mother's Day! Where does the time go? Before we know it the end of the school year will be here. Wow, time certainly does fly!

Before the products from Spring Mini retire, I'm trying to use them as much as possible! This tree image from Valentine Defined is one of my favorites from this set. It is versatile enough that you don't only have to use it for Valentines! I gave the tree a bit of a Spring/Summer look by first stamping the image in Old Olive, then removing the ink from the truck with a blender pen. Then I colored directly on the trunk (on the actual stamp) with a Chocolate Chip marker and huffed on the ink before stamping the image on Very Vanilla cardstock. To add a little more color and interest I used three butterflies adorned with pearls to the end of each branch. I love the look :)

I used the SCS SC330 for inspiration for my card today.

Thanks for stopping by!
