Bears & Bouquets

I have been putting off making my Mother's Day cards all week. I just wasn't in the mood to make cards yet... I know! Weird eh?

So I finally sat down and stamped out my card images on cardstock and got them both coloured last night. I took all morning and actually finished creating them... finally! Late is better than nothing right?

So here's my first card... to be sent to my Mom.

These cute little bears is stamp by Stampavie (Penny Johnson) called Visiting Friends. So I couldn't resist also creating both my Mother's Day cards with Stampavie images so I also incorporated their challenge for this week... GLITTER! Gotta love glitter!

*Mother's Day greeting by myStampBOX, "Straightforward" stamp set.

Above is a picture of the inside of my card.
Below shows the glitter I added to some of my little Prima roses. I also used a glitter paper (off white) by Doodlebug Designs and I added some glitter to the bouquet of roses the little bear is holding!

And the second Mother's Day card I created is for my Mother-in-law.

This cute little teddy is another Stampavie stamp set by Penny Johnson called Bear Flowers. It took me quite some time to colour just the little teddy image. I wanted her to look fluffy so I took them time and layered... and layered on the different shades of dusty brown colour.
