Birgit Norton is our hostess for May and she's created the most wonderful tribute to her Mom - we were all truly touched by her words - thank you, Birgit! This kit was filled with lots of reminders of her mother's favorite things... and such a joy to play cards with - I mean it, Birgit!!! [inside joke] thank you so very much!
As you can glimpse in Lindsey's awesome photo above [thanks darlin' for the new look!!] Birgit gave us plenty of goodies, papers, images to color, many die cuts that were all ready for the card, and sentiments galore! I've plenty leftover for many more cards!
So, get a beverage, and get comfy, 'kay?
Let's start with the gorgeous flowers, shall we?
This card made itself, btw. All I added was the scalloped die cut edge!
Since most of my cards are sent to other card makers, I've left a few tulips simply tucked in so they could use them for a creation of their own!
You won't be surprised that I colored a few blooms in my favorite shades of grey, right?
This Freesia set promptly when into a cart.
LOve this combination of Distress inks for water coloring:
Black Soot, and Pumice Stone!
I loved this apron [it came just like this!]
It certainly brought my own sweet mama to mind!
Yes - that little love note does slide in and out! A pocket-full of love!
One of our favorite 'sick in bed' things to do as a kid was to string buttons...
try to get a kid to do that today!!!
These little PTI dies haven't seen the light of day in forever!
I triple-clear-embossed the 'thanks' and also the cherries!
LOve cherry pie ... and a red & pink combo!
Last card, but perhaps my favorite of all:
Just the tiniest bit of Copic coloring and bingo: cuteness overload!
If you've made it this far, thank you - it always makes my heart happy! But if you started here, now you must visit each and every one of my 12 Kits of Occasions friends!
