You Blow Me Away!

Good Morning Monday, Again!

A beautiful Carolina morning it is too!  

The sun is shining, birds are chirping.  It's going to be a beautiful spring day!

It's also time for 

Today's Challenge is a Theme:

Mother's Day

Mother's Day in the U.S.
 is next 
Sunday, May 11th!

Stop over at The Pink Elephant Challenge Blog and check out the rest of my fellow design team's fabulous inspirational projects.  Then show us your beautiful projects made for MOM by linking up with us.  

We love having you play along!

Here is what I created:

STAMPS: Digital Image:  Puddle Jumper Big Bubble Girl Bonnie-with sentiment (ByLoriDesigns). Sentiment-"to a sweet mom" (Hero Arts, I think).
PAPER: White cardbase.  Background DP and paper pieces-Hello Spring (Doodlebug Designs); Border layers (Recollections - old, old).
INK: Tuxedo Black (Momento); Copics on digital image.
EXTRAS: Circle border die (Lil' Inker Designs); Banner (Reverse Confetti); Stitched rectangle mat (Lil' Inker Designs); Glossy Accents (on gum machine); purple baker's twine; Enamel Dots (Recollections) - except for orange enamel dot, which is home made from a plastic bead.

I had bought this image for last week's design card but life had other plans for me, so I decided to use it for this week.  Is she not adorable?  Stop by ByLoriDesigns and check out all of Lori's fabulous work.  She has a wonderful new set just released!

The challenge this week at 4 Crafty Chicks has been paper piecing and so I decided to paper piece little Bonnie's outfit. I used the sketch at Seize the Sketch and chose to do a layer of "bubbles" or "gumballs", whichever you prefer.  And, I added a layer of glossy accents to the gumball machine to give it a more "glassy" look.

For Following Challenges:

Pink Elephant Blessings!
