Mother's Day-Time Out #4

Hi there!
I have been busy making Mother's Day cards for a local Co-Op here in Austin that I am so honoured to be an "owner" with thousands of others and the I am the local card supplier.  I was a little intimidated with this last order (100 Mother's Day cards for the two locations) as time was quite short.  I had just returned from a week's visit to Vancouver where my daughter is currently living and had an email with the large request.  My husband and I had a blast and ate such great meals!  We saw such beauty in the forests and atop Whistler.  

Anyway...I did manage to take pics of a few of the cards before I delivered today and here is one that I made based on a new to me challenge that I saw last night.  It is called Time Out and this is the 4th challenge, to case Virginia Lu with a twist of our own.  So...I worked with the same sketch, changed the colours and instead of the cool twine on Virginia's card (I love this effect) I used scraps from the PTI Doodly-Do die-cuts and placed in a cluster to represent the twine from Virginia's card . I like how this turned out, but wish that I had used a larger flower like on the inspiration card.  My little flower is topped with a pink sequin.
I have more Mother's Day cards and will be showing them in the next few days.

In the meantime, just for fun, here is a photo of me and my husband (we have been married 34 years on the 24th of May !)at the Olympic rings.
Take care and thanks for visiting!


  1. I love how you used do edits instead of twine, a great idea and it looks fab. Thanks for joining us at TIME OUT x

  2. Now that's a LOT of cards!!! Well done to you!! Super card and what a great photo too!

  3. Your Mother's Day card is stunning, Chriss! It is a great CASE of Virginia's card for the TOC. I can't even imagine making 100 cards on short notice - or on long notice! You are a card artist ROCK STAR!!

    I think that is a really cool picture of you two kids; you don't look old enough to be married that long! Congratulations on your 34th Anniversary coming up, and many, many more! Hugs, Darnell

  4. Such a pretty CASE. Thanks for taking the TIME OUT and joining in on the challenge. Hugs Bev x
