Two Challenges & a Kit!!

I am so excited - I managed to do 2 challenges and broke open my Taylored Expression Key ingredients kit for April (March's is still waiting for some lovin'!!)

My friend Janet's challenge this week over at the Corrosive Challenge blog was to make a Mother's Day card; Janet lost her mother to cancer so big hugs to her for making this one of her challenges as Mothers Day is tough for her. I have to thank her because now my mom MIGHT get her card on time; you know it still have to get into the mailbox! Her gift is always late because I deliver it in person; which she prefers :)

I played along with the MOJO Monday 84 challenge for my card. The image is from Taylored Expressions Fresh Flowers set which is designed by the amazingly talented Nancy McKinney. The image is stamped with memento's tuxedo black ink on Taylored Expressions vanilla cs and coloured with copics.

I popped up 1 of the flowers and paper pieced the center on the big flower. I added some tiny hearts from Taylor's Multi-colored Twinkle Shapes. The image and the sentiment are both cut with nesties

I really like the kits (the March one looks really pretty...) they are definitely worth purchasing!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great night - mine so far is perfect; the Flames are losing the hockey game so I am a happy girl :) - sorry Wendy!!
