Elisabeth Bells World April Challenge and Friends With Heart Challenge

Wow - it's the 25th again, where has this last month gone?  It seems that we just did our monthly challenge over at Elisabeth Bells World.  And yet, here we are again....

This month our challenge is to create a card or gift with MOTHERS DAY in mind.... 

I have created 2 things.  I began one project, but then thought that I wanted to something else, so I put the first one on hold...  After I finished the one, of course, I had to go and finish the original one that I started, so I actually have 2 that I can show you today.

First the gift set that I have made for my mom.

This little tote bag idea was actually a template that was SO much smaller, but I completely re-created it in a larger scale, using a single sheet of 12x12 piece of DP.    The image on this tote is from SCACD's Spring Sampler Set.   I have filled the little tote with some Mary Kay products that I know my mom would love.  Nothing like having some facial cleanser and moisturizer, as well as the Microderm Abrasion set.  Right?

Okay so, now my original plan was to create a stair step card, but for some reason it was JUST NOT WORKING for me, so I tweaked it here and there, and no it may not be what one would call a "Stair Step Card" but it IS a card, that will actually require a box, rather than an envelope.  ha ha....

This is my version of sending "Flowers to mom.  This stamp is also from the SCACD's Spring Sampler Set. 

Susana's Custom Art and Card Design has another new set out called "The Peekers" which I STILL need to get my hands on.  I just LOVE all of the designs by Elisabeth Bell.  The Peekers are next on my list.  =)

Okay, so here is my mothers "flower garden"

I tried my hand at creating some of my own roses... (not the ones you see in front) the ones at the right side.  Here is a closer view.

I decided that I would enter this into this weeks Challenge at SCACD Friends with Heart Challenge blog they want to see your A-R-T...

  1. A = ANY stamp from SCACD
    (Please note, the stamp must physically be in the store, not just the company-thanks!)
  2. R = RIBBON
  3. T = TWO patterned/ designer papers

    So there you have it, that was my ART.
    We certainly hope that you'll find some time this month to join us over at Elisabeth Bells World Challenge Blog.  You have almost a whole month to play along.  We can't wait to see what you will create with MOTHERS in MIND.  =)
