Mommy and Me

Hey there blog readers, I'm here with a blog post featuring none other than mom.  Mother's Day was a couple days ago.  Did you have a good day?  I did, although it was pretty low key.   
I created this layout for Quick Quotes to serve as a thank you letter to my mom.  Having such a close relationship with her has given me the ability to cultivate great relationships with other women.  In essence, I have her to thank for all of the beautiful friendships that I have made and maintained over the years.

This month, the Quick Quotes are not only focusing on Mother's Day projects, were are also focusing on the PowderPuff Chalking Inks.  I love the subtle dimension that inking creates.  I used Tahiti here to ink the edge of the vellum quote.  I used Bloody Mary on the patterned paper covered chipboard.

Inking doesn't have to be tone on tone.  As you can see here, I embossed the butterfly with white powder and then inked the edges with Tahiti to add a pop of color.

I created a couple of Mother's Day cards for the Purple Cows blog using a couple of the new CraftGeek punches.  To see full instructions and details, check out the blog.

I actually ended up giving this one to my mom on Mother's Day.  She loved it!!

That's all for now,
