A Card Only A Mother Can Love, Hopefully!

My Mom’s birthday is coming up and she loves swans. I bought this swan stamp off of EBay and had a hard time trying to figure out how to use it. After I stamped the trees and the swan, I stamped the swan again on a piece of plastic, lined it up and pressed it on the card for the reflection. I had to cover both the swan and the swan reflection and then stamped the trees on another piece of plastic and lined it up on the card as tree reflections. Then, I water colored the sky, land and water. I hope she likes the card.
Stamps: Lovely As A Tree, Swan
Paper: Naturals White
Inks: Green, Blue Yellow

Donations? Donations? Anyone?

Threw these boxes together at the last minute for a fundraiser for my church. I wanted to use flower vases, but my DH pointed out to me that if they fell off the counter, there would be glass all over the place. I put pillar candles in the bottom of the boxes so that they would be more stable. We bagged groceries at our local Winn Dixie for tips. All the proceeds went to the Adullam House which provides a place for children of prisoners to live. I was amazed (and proud!) of the generosity of our community. We had a wonderful time and the kids were richly blessed!
