Flourishes Thank You

Well, since I had my Flourishes stamps out and baby has yet to make an appearance, here is another thank you card for one of my mom's co-workers.  I've never met her, but she sent along a very nice baby present for me.  I went for a monochromatic look with this one.  The stamp is from the Cherry Blossoms set, colored with the Lavender Moon copic trio from PTI.  And as with the majority of my simple coloring cards - a little bling to match!  

On a side note - baby's actual due date is tomorrow.....let's hope he comes soon!

Fun with Copics

Just wanted to share a gift that I made for my mom's birthday.  It's a set of notecards featuring Flourishes stamps.  The stamps come from the Waterlilies, Humming Along, Cherry Blossoms and Year of Flowers 2 sets.  They were great fun to make - I think maybe I'll have to made myself a set?  Of course it also makes me want to buy some more of these great flower stamps.  Perfect for copics.  I think it makes a pretty good homemade gift.  I've included the enveloped and placed them all in one of those clear boxes from PTI for that 'professional' look.

This will probably be my last post for awhile as I'm about to have my baby any day now.  I may be able to sneak one more in as I still need to make my Mom a birthday card.  It may find its way to my blog.  :) We'll have to see what my little one has planned.

Happy Birthday!

Here is a little birthday card for my sister!  Not sure how often she checks out my blog - so if Amanda's reading this - pretend to be surprised when you get this in the mail!

I used this weeks color palette from ColourQ:
The main image is a paper pieced Unity stamp.  All cardstock is PTI (Aquamist, Lemon Tart and white), patterned paper was scraps I had - mostly CTMH.  I colored some of the details with copics, but its kind of hard to tell in the picture.  

Thanks for having a look!
