Sunday Fun Day

So, it's Mom's Day.  Since this is "my" day, I spent it playing in a few challenges.

I started with Freshly Made Sketches #235 - [loved the sketch], used the colors from Inkspirational Challenge #108; mint and navy, and was even able to play in AAA Cards #64, inlaid dies.

I started with a washed water colored background. I went on with using The CAS-ual Friday's Friend Fri-die [cut is done with a navy blue card stock -- I know it looks blacker then black, grrrr], a sentiment from Girlfriend stamp set, along with a new Snowflake Fri-die [available for sale in JULY].  (If you look close, you can see I inlaid the navy in the center of the snowflake die)




I still had some time, so I joined in CAS Colours & Sketches #172 [color challenge], and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge; stencils.

My son is turning 22 [oh my! not quite sure how THAT happened!].  The colors are perfect for a masculine card, and the ARTplorations Oh My Stars Stencil is perfect for him being a sailor! ;)  I used MFT High Rise Numbers Die-namics, along with Pierced Star Die-namics.  My hb is from Altenew Label Love.  A mixture of products for a card I hope my son will like!

Well, MY Mom's Day was perfect!  How about you, did you have a great day?
