Best Mother Ever

Challenge try again

Today’s card was inspired by a challenge at It features a beautiful sketch by Tara and the “Delft Tile Technique,” which has an excellent tutorial here. I found the challenge late yesterday night and woke up today excited to try it out. The real challenge, however, turned out to be remaining a patient, loving, playful mom to my much loved children while I raced to meet miss the deadline. It was rather ironic that I had chosen the sentiment “Best Mother Ever” for my own mother who is a faithful reader of my still new blogging adventure. I am happy to say that, while I did not meet the deadline or qualify for the “best mother ever” as I tried, I did make rockets, giant elephant masks, jewelry, hats, and one heck of a dinosaur machine instead.

Oh, and to my mom who’s support means more than I can say: Challenge inside

(She’ll get this card when I see her Thursday- sorry, mom, it won’t be a surprise!)

Enjoy the Adventure

Adventure Ahead

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s challenge #206 at


The bike was stamped in both basic gray and real red. The basic gray one was colored with blender pens and stamp pads (squish ink onto the lid and then pick up the ink with the blender pen) and then the red flag and word “adventure” where cut out and glued on top.
