TESC 111 - Mother

Hi everyone! I know it seems like I've been quiet, but don't worry, I've still been creating behind the scenes! Next Wednesday begins the sneaks for Taylor's new sets...can you believe another month has already flown by?! Well, another Friday, another new sketch for you! Here it is for you... and I sincerely hope you will play!


And since Mother's Day is sneaking upon us and I STILL haven't made a single card for it, here's my submission for this week!



On my last trip to San Antonio, I made sure we swung by Stamp Antonio and I picked up some little lovelies...vintage Mother and Father images appropriate for each respective holiday! I also grabbed some Vintage glitter glass in silver and clear. I loooove that stuff! Inspiration for my card came from the Shabby Tea Room blog...a comforts of home inspiration photo over there. My comfort of home....coming home to my precious kiddos. :)



I used a lot of my favorite little goodies laying around (literally!) my room. The pretty blue patterned paper is from Prima's Shabby Chic line as well as the glittered flower chipboard. My vintage print paper is from that old medical journal I bought a while back. Chipboard frame and heart and the little adorable pom pom trim is from Maya Road. I love that little trim sooo much. I swear I think I could buy it out of stock of Taylor's store if she let me! *giggle* The "mother" stamp is from Verve's Because of You set. I think that's about it. :)

Oh! I wanted to share that I was featured over on the SEI blog yesterday!!! You've already seen the card on my blog, but you can see it again over THERE!

Off to another uneventful weekend (I hope!) Thanks so much for your visit and hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Absolutely precious comes to my mind first when I look at your creation! I simply {heart} that sweet vintage image and the colors and embellies you chose for your design are beautiful - so soft, so shabby, so vintage! Thanks once again, Melissa, for sharing your talents with us all in the Tea Room this week -- hope to see you again on Monday for the next challenge :)
