Try It Out Tuesday #17~ Mom's Day

Our challenge this week was to create a Mother's Day card and gift. Hmm. I really had to think about this one.
My mom loves chicken themed items, hummingbird themed items and the color purple. Well, I can do the purple. But then I thought about it and she reads my blog so I couldn't post anything I made for her. So this is for an imaginary mom. Maybe it will inspire you to create something for your mom!
With summer coming, I thought it would be fun to do a summer themed card/gift. I chose to use my new Lily at the Beach set! Yup, Susana is carrying Pink Cat Studio stamps now!! I decided to make a card and then a bookmark as many Mom's would like a bookmark to keep their place while they are enjoying some summer sun. It might not be your traditional mom's day card/gift but I still bet Mom would like it!
For the card I used a sketch from SCS, SC211.
Don't forget to stop by Susana's store blog, Follow Your Heart, to see all the other design team members wonderful creations and also to see how you can play along!

Supplies:
card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
bookmark size: 2 1/2 x 5
stamps: Lily at the Beach, TAC Curls and Swirls-on inside,
paper: some I've had for awhile-I think it's Making Memories,
ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, VersaMagic Tea Leaves,
others: copics ( Blonde 2 copic bundle), Petaloo Dazzlers, celery shimmerz, diamond stickles, corner punches,

What a darling card and bookmark, Danni. I love the images, and your colors. How nice that your mom reads your blog. I'm always teasing my grown kids that I could post all their birthday cards on my blog and they'd never know because they never check it. Actually, they probably check it - just never leave comments. Anyway, love your Mother's Day project.

Tara said...

I read a lot (books and magazines) and I always forget about making a bookmark - what a great idea!! So much cuter than the postcard advertisements that I use now!!

Lily is so cute!! I haven't gotten this set yet but I'm pretty sure my "collection" needs it, lol!
