Another Upcoming Card

Hi Everyone, 

Just wanted to show you another one of my upcoming cards that we will be making.  I just love the In-Colors this year and this is a great example of the Blackberry Bliss.

I started with The Blackberry Bliss CS - 133675 and a full colored stamp in the Blackberry Bliss Ink - 133642 and just kept stamping without re-inking to get that lighter effect as you move downward.  I also used the Sweet Taffy DSP - 133693 and the Blackberry Bliss Satin Ribbon - 133668 and a few of the continuous Jewel Rhinestones - 119246.
Work of Art - 134114
Email me at donnamarcil@gmail.com, if you have any questions. Hope you enjoy!

    Happy Mother's Day Mom!

    To My Mother,

    My entire life, you have had this incredible presence of what I choose to do. You have been there to help celebrate all my successes and accept my defeats. You taught me the value of hard work, good judgment, courage and pure honesty. You have shared laughter, smiles and quiet time too.  If I have ever forgot to say thank you I would like to say it today, for your care, your love, and so much more, Thank You and Happy Mother's Day!

    Here is the card that I made for my mom, because she is 1 in a million, even though I could not be with her today, because I have a terrible cold and did not want share that with her.

    Secret Garden -129144 and Framelits - 129372
    My Mother - 133083
    Well since I was sick today and could not visit my mother or anyone else, I played in my craft room for a short time today in between naps or coughing.  I made this card using the same basis as above, but turned it into a birthday card.
    Petite Petals - 133155 and Punch - 133322
    or Bundle it and save 15% - 134822

    Another Great Year - 133041
    Hope everyone had a glorious day today?  I may have a cold and was home and in bed most of the day, it was still a good day.  The sun was shining, the weather was warm, my husband made me mozzarella with fresh basil, olive oil and balsamic vinegar on toasted begets, (took me back to Italy for a moment), I spoke to my children and I thanked my mom for all she does.  I also got to play in my craft room, what more could I have asked for?

    If you need anything, please feel free to contact me or leave me a comment on how you liked the cards.

    Blessed Easter

    Hi Everyone,

    I hope that EVERYONE had a blessed Easter, I know I did. I spent it sitting outside in the warm Wisconsin weather. YES, I said warm, 85 degrees that day where we live.  As I sat there with my mother, watching my grandchildren play in the yard, I glanced over to see my mothers face as she held her newest great-granddaughter, Shelby.  It made me realized how truly blessed I am to still have my mother here to talk to and see the joy on her face as she holds that little baby and talks to her with such a sweet gentle voice.  We then reminisce of how it felt just like yesterday she was holding my children when they were newborns and how fast life has become and then goes by....

    My mother enjoys the Spring time and the wonderful flowers it brings up and this is the Easter Card that I made for her.  Well, I got to playing and made these other cards too.
    Blessed Easter - 133212
    Simply Sketched - Hostess- 129672
    Vivid Vases - 133818
    I liked the color combo so I just changed out the stamp sets and this is what I came up with.  Hope you all enjoy!

    Thank you so much for coming by to visit. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at donnamarcil@gmail.com

    Have a great week!
