Sorry that my post is so late in the day. Grandma duties took longer than I expected.
My mom is 90 and still in relatively good health. She had more energy just a few years ago than I have now. She loves glitz , gold, and bling. You know that I have trouble with those when I am making a card. (It was easier to make the card for my MIL) She also loves antiques, lace, buttons, pearls, etc. I can handles those so that is the direction I went with this card.
The image is by Doodle Pantry. I did another card a while back (in March) arranging these tulips in a jar. I saved that arrangements so I could make more cards with it. This is what the set looks like
In that March post, I told you I would show you a photo of some of the tulip fields in the next county. Well, we didn't get down there this year but a friend of mine did, so here is one of her photos.
Here are the last of mine from our flower beds:
Now it is on to Lilacs. I have a bouquet of those in my house and the aroma is heavenly.
But back to the card. I added a little color to the jar and also added some Clear Star Sakura pen to the outline and the words just to give a little more sparkle and interest. The tulips are pre-colored. Distressing is with two Tim Holz distress inks. The lace is some lace from my mom's sewing basket, the pearls are new even though they look old.
If I don't get a chance to visit with you before Sunday, let me wish each of you moms a wonderful Mother's Day. Children are definitely a blessing. I am super blessed to be the mom of six.
