Happy 13th Birthday Amy!

No, I can't believe that my daughter is 13, but the date doesn't lie.

For this card, I used two-sided patterned papers from My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose Gertie 6 x 6 paper pack and Bazzill cardstock.

I used CTMH Buttons, Stampin' Up Ribbon and embroidery floss from my stash.

The large photo corner punch, border punch, scalloped circle punch and circle punches are all from EK Success. The ovals were cut out with Nestabilities and the "13" was cut out with the Cricut Machine. I played around with so many different cartridges that I honestly don't remember which one I finally ended up using.

The "Happy Birthday" sentiment if from CTMH's "Happy Birthday" stamp set, the image stamp is from The Greeting Farm's "Miss Anya's Hats Off" stamp set and the inside sentiment is from Stampin' Up's "Create a Cupcake" stamp set.

Copic Markers used: Hair - E27, E29 & E25; Skin - E00 & E000; Pink Dead Space to match background paper - R21 & E42; Red - R27; Green - YG95 and Teal - BG18, BG72, C1 & C2.

Happy Mother's Day!

This is the Mother's Day card that I made my mom. She loves the colour blue, she loves butterflies & dogs and this dog is called Toby and that was one of our dog's name when I was growing up.

The patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose Hattie 6 x 6 paper pack and the cardstock is Bazzill & Stampin' Up.

To embellish the card, I used embroidery floss from my stash and hand stitched the line, the butterfly border punch is from Martha Stewart and I used CTMH Brads.

The image stamp is the Wild Rose Studio Toby & Butterfly and the sentiments came from CTMH Tag the Occasion & CTMH Butterfly Wings.

Copic Markers used: W2, E43, W6, E44, W0, Y26, YR24, Y23, BG18 & BG99.

I hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day. I already am and I am very much looking forward to the rest of the day.

Happy Mother's Day!
