Paper and Ink Imaginings

Happy Mother’s Day 2018

Early in April, I was watching the premiere of the Trading Spaces reboot…and of course there was a paint chip commercial. Paint chips! Gotta do it for my friends!

These got mailed out before Offspring3 and I left on our adventure.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Sunbathing Mother’s Day Card

This is a card for my Mom.

The main image is on a wobble spring, and intentionally mounted with the lady leaning. When you make it wobble, it looks like she is falling.

True story: My maternal grandmother was sitting in a similar lawn chair at our neighborhood picnic sometime while I was in high school. She was watching the softball game, beer in her hand. A small plane went over head (we were less than 10 miles from a small community airport), and it caught her eye. It must have gone straight over her. She watched it diligently and leaned a little too much in that webbed lawn chair. She went over backwards. One of those slow motion visuals. She didn’t get hurt, but she did spill her beer.

With that story in mind, how else could I use this image for Mom???

The blog is Freshly Made Sketches, and here is the inspiration:

Striped Anniversary Card

Has anyone seen my mojo? Or my crafting time?

Both have seemed to disappear this week.

So…a quick card for today. I love this the way it is, but, depending on who I send it to, I may add some flowers or foliage to the corners of the sentiment banner.

Have a nice weekend!
