Heart 2 Heart Challenge #9

Happy Memorial Day to all!

Here is my take on this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge.  I needed to make a baby shower card for tomorrow, so this was a great help as I was lacking in the mojo department.  All supplies except the charm are CTMH.

Be sure to check back tonight after 9pm(EDT) for the CTMH stamp of the month blog hop.

A Post of a Different Kind

Today I want to share something on a totally different subject than what you would usually find here; art of a different kind. 
I have a very talented nephew; who produces many different forms of art including music. While it may not be my style, it is still very well done! Please take time to listen to the band's demo tape and feel free to share it on Facebook or your own blog.  Thanks for listening; you've made some young people very happy!

Happy Mother's Day

Here is my card for this week's H2H challenge; which was to create something for Mother's Day.  The idea for my card was totally scraplifted from Jeanette Lynton's (CTMH's wonderfully talented founder) blog. I changed the colors to one of my favorite combos...Hydrangea, Amethyst and New England Ivy. I also used one of my favorite stamp sets, Enjoy Every Moment.  Before watercoloring the flowers, I dry embossed them to make them pop out from the paper.  I wish I could photograph it better; it is a real pretty effect.

Wishing all the Moms out there a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!
