Welcome to my blog!

Thanks for visiting my blog. As the title suggests, I love to scrapbook, stamp, and sing! I will share cards and scrapbook pages I create, as well as information about my music - Barbershop harmony.

Happy Mother's Day!

Hey everyone - if you're celebrating Mother's Day today, hope you have a wonderful one!! Popping in for a quick post of the Mother's Day cards I made - just three this year: Mom, Aunt Carol (Mom's sister), and Mother Mary, the remaining Queen Mum (the other one passed away last summer).




Supplies: Paper - Poptone Snow Cone & Black, Tim Holtz Metallic Kraft; blue vellum;
various Bazzill colors; Authentique Wintery (stone pattern); BoBunny woodgrain
DCWV A2 and A7 blue cards
Stamps - Hero Arts (retired) & Paper Smooches All Year Cheer
Stampendous Fresh Peony
Die - Hunkydory Crafts Box Collection 3 Hanging Basket
My Favorite Things Flutter of Butterflies Solid and Lace and Blueprints 13
Other - foam tape; Michaels gems; Ranger Seafoam white embossing powder;
washi tape by unknown; punched butterfly; Crayola pencils

When I posted Heather's birthday card last Sunday, I mentioned thinking the basket diecut would be pretty on a Mother's Day card - yes, indeed! Made slightly different versions & was really happy with both of them. Then I masked the large peony and leaves for card 2 - colored with pencils and blended with Copics. It's such a large flower that I made the panel into an A7 card. Mailed cards 2 and 3 but card one is being delivered to my mom in person today. I also got her a basket of flowers for her front steps - she'll have fun making Dad water it all summer - LOL.

Thanks for stopping and I hope you'll be back tomorrow for another Merry Monday challenge!
