Hang in There Sloth Card

This mini stamp set is another gift from Offspring3. I love the happy sloth!

I blended in using two masks – one to cover the sloth (and keep him un blue!), one that covered the card but left a circle.

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???

Snail Mail Note Card

YES, the retired Turtle & Co stamp set is still on my work table! (and I still haven’t finished my spring cleaning OR Mother’s Day cards! YIKES!)

I colored the snail with Copic markers, and added Glossy Accents to the shell (and a little bit of a slime trail).

My inner Star Wars geek has a message for you:  May the 4th be with you!
