Design Teams

WOW!  Where did the past two weeks go to?  Seems like they just flew by and it's time for another challenge!  This time we are honoring one of the most loved and important persons in our lives ~ MOM!  Mother's Day is coming soon and I know there are a lot of you out there making cards for this special day.  So why not hop on over to Chocolate, Coffee & Card Challenges and play along!

Our super sponsor is QKR Stampede and they let us choose from their great images to do our cards.  I chose this cute little guy with his frog.  Too cute!  I colored him with my Copics, used a die cut for his background, also a die cut in the corner for some accent, then added the ribbons, button and sentiment.  It reminds me of my son when he was about four and brought me the same gift!

Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms, Step Moms and any ladies who devote their time to raising a child.  It's one of the hardest and most rewarding jobs there is!
