Three Clover Thursday: Happy Mother's Day

Happy Three Clovers Thursday. Today Kerry challenged us to make a mother's day card with ribbon or lace. Do you see the lace? me neither, when I read the challenge, I only saw Mother's day (ooppps). It was a rough week. Like I had said yesterday, I had 3 finals in three days, but you know what? I am FINISHED & FREE!!!!! Let the Mojo run free. I am so happy to be able to get back to "normal" life (laundry, making dinners, cleaning my house, and of course my creative hobby). Seriously, I can't wait to get my house cleaned and organized. I had put so many things off until the semester was over. It is time to do some catching up.

Ok, back to my card. This was one of the cards I had made over the weekend at our Vermont trip. My good friend KDC was kind enough to let me stamp one of her Tilda's, and I thought this Tilda would make a great Mother's day card (plus, she is holding Lilacs and I LOVE lilacs). As much as I as I don't love these little Tilda girls (because of the mouth), They are growing on me. I love to color them and set up a scene with them. I loved coloring the wall, the tree, and shading all her clothes. "I think I like Tilda"! Shhhh, don;t tell Kerry.

So, if you get a chance, head on over to Kerry's blog and see what the team cam e up with and then come join in on the fun and don;t forget to sign up with Mr. linky.

Stamps: Magnolia
PAPER: Basic Grey
INK: copics, and memento black
