Mother's Day Wishes



Hello friends!  Yikes! Where have I been?  Just busy with work and family and getting some Mother's Day cards ready to take into work.  I'll be sharing them over the next few weeks, starting with this one for the PTI Blog Hop today.  Here's the inspiration photo...


I was not feeling the literal meaning of this image, so I went "impressionistic," that is, my impression of the colours, the circles, and stitched lines, all on a neutral background.  I really love how the Rosie Posie flowers came together :)  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!

When you see my card you'll know I went very literal. Love these gorgeous flowers Maureen!

Rosie Posie is my favourite (still) and you can never go wrong with a floral, no matter what the challenge. Super pretty card, especially with that lovely neutral background.

Very pretty, I'm not into the modern look so I had to do the same thing.

I think a lot of us struggled with the inspiration pic this month. I love what you took from it and I agree, you can't go wrong with Rosie Posie
