Happy Mother's Day!

Here's a project I made for The Shabby Tea Room (TSTR251) and Mojo Monday (MOJO396) challenges this week.

Sending love to my own lovely mother and to all of those who've mothered me or helped me do my mothering. You are loved, especially today and very much appreciated!

I used the Postage Due stamp set, which retires at the end of this catalog.

My color palette is Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette, Perfect Plum, Sahara Sand and Whisper White.

Mother's Day Card for a Colour Me Card Challenge

Here's a quick post about my Mother's Day card for this year...  I am sad to know that the Bits and Pieces set is on the Retiring Items list (production of the stamp set is guaranteed through May 31, but might sell out before June 2 after that).

I am doubly sad about the Crisp Cantaloupe, as it's no longer available (it was among the 2013-15 In Colors which retired this May). This was the color palette from this week's Colour Me Card Challenge (CMCC70), so here it is!

I made the flowers from a retired punch (what was I thinking?!), but it could easily be replicated with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. A sweet Pearl Basic Jewel in the middle of each flower is just the touch...

The "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment comes from Teeny Tiny Wishes, one of my GO TO sets!

Studio Suggestion:  Those In Colors always sell out in their final months, so I usually make sure that I've stocked up on card stock, ink refills and accessories during Sale-A-Bration, when they're still around.

Host Set Note Card for Challenges!

I'm back! April was a fantastically busy month for my family with lots of lovely things happening, but I have just stolen a little time in the Studio! I only got one project completed so far, but here's what we've got for today.

I'm entering this project in the Mojo Monday MOJO395 and Colour Me Card CMCC69 Challenges.

I used the retiring Hello, There host set and 2013-15 In Color, Coastal Cabana, along with Real Red and Cherry cobbler.  The Burlap Ribbon and Cotton Ribbon add a bit of texture to the project. The Baker's Twine was just what I needed to finish the flag.

Since the 2014-15 Annual Catalog is in its final month (and things are selling out!), I'll be highlighting retiring items throughout the month.  Click {HERE} to read more about the retiring catalog,
