Celebrating Mothers and Fathers

Happy Friday!!  How has everyone's week been?
Mine has been fabulous!  Except for this icky snow! (sorry for the dirty word!)  I mean really!...it's mid April and snow should be a thing of the past now!  I do pray that this is the end of that stuff and we can move onto a more glorious spring.

I want to say a warm welcome to my new followers!  I'm so very happy you are here!  If you're visiting and would like to stay connected, you can find my links over there on the right for Facebook, Pinterest, and Bloglovin.  I haven't jumped on the twitter bandwagon yet...something about it scares me...but maybe someday I will get there :)

Onto my cards for today.  Playing a little bit of catch-up..again :)  I had a great card-making day yesterday.  4 cards completed!!  And I figured, instead of spreading them out over multiple blog posts, I'll just do them all together :)

We will start with Mother's Day cards!  I've made quite a few of these over the last few months.  They are always so much fun to make!
This little sweetie is So Tall from Pollycraft Designs.  Adorable little image.  I thought it worked great to make as a mother's day card from a daughter :)

I colored it all in with my colored pencils and then layered all the papers together with a large bow at the bottom.  The border is my MS lace edge punch that I love oh so much (I think 90% of my cards recently feature that punch :) ).  I printed off the sweet circle sentiment and then added some blue liquid pearls in the corners.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
    Dilly Bean-Pastels
    The Paper Shelter #107-Spring Delights
    Send a Smile 4 Kids-Mother's Day
    Sketchy Friday #14
    There She Goes-Blue, Yellow, Neutral

Onto the next Mother's Day card:
I think this was my favorite of the day yesterday.  It's Spring from Pollycraft Designs all colored up and surrounded in girlie pinks!  My goal yesterday was to try and tackle some of scrap pile and get rid of some of it so I don't have so much to move.  These papers all seemed to go so well together!  I just loved that!

I layered 2 ribbons together and made a bow to stick at the bottom.  Then added 6 of those sweet little flower brads to the corners.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
    2 Creative Chicks #1-Mother's Day
    Divas by Design-Flowers
    Pattie's Creations #65-Make it Sparkle
    Pretty Little Ribbons #21-Spring is in the Air
    Simon Says-April Showers/Spring Flowers
    Sweet Sketch Wednesday #201

And now onto Father's Day :)
This is one of my favorite images to use for Father's Day cards.  I think it totally reminds me of my dad, so it makes me smile every time I look at it.  Again, it's Robot Dad from Pollycraft Designs (I was on a roll with their images yesterday, can you tell?)  And I've used that fabulous MS lace edge punch again, along with some Twinery Cappuccino twine behind the image and tied into a bow around my handmade button.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
    Aud Sentiments #78-For a Guy
    Digi Darlas #57-Take Me Out To The Ball Game
    Seems a Little Sketchy #36
    Robyn's Fetish #154-Anything Goes

Well, if you made it to the end, thanks for sticking around!  I know it was a long one, but this weekend will be pretty busy for us...as will the next several weeks as we move into a new apartment.  So I may be a bit quiet.  Please bear with me!  I will be back, I promise :)

For now, love to you all! <3
