Happy Mother's Day!

Good afternoon! I thought I would get this finished and posted this morning, but you know how things can go! This Tilda is from the Chasing Butterflies collection and isn't she cute! I used the sketch challenge from SCS this week which worked nicely, I think. I just got the SU eyelet edge punch and love it! The dp is from Basic Grey's Wisteria collection and is even more beautiful IRL!


Here's the close up for you! She was stamped on white (Papertrey Ink's) with tuxedo black and then colored with copics. After that she was painstakingly cut out. It's impossible to cut out around all the roses so I did what I could then filled in color with a lavender grey marker. I glued her onto a piece of dp from my 6x6 pack. No dimensionals this time-the image was too fragile!
Mother's Day isn't too different from other days for me anymore. I miss my mom each and every day of every year since she passed on January 8, 2005. I love you, Mom.
My husband treats me special, though, even though I am mom to fur babies, currently, Charlie and Violet, our two cats.
I hope YOU'VE been treated special today by those who love you and whom you love!
