Love You Loads, Mom!

We meet again–Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing a super fun and perfectly fitting Paper Smooches card. 😉 This card is ideal to give to my Mom on Mother’s Day (quickly approaching) or really anytime, for that matter. How many days in total did my Mom spend doing my laundry? Months? Years? Wow. ❤

For this card, I colored the fun Squeaky Clean Paper Smooches images with Copic Markers. (This little dust bunny has been a long time favorite of mine, so naturally, he had to hop in the laundry basket. 😉 ) I used the Power Rays die negative as a stencil and blended on some Distress Oxide inks. I laugh at how the laundry is emitting power rays! 🙂

I am always a fan of alphabet stamp sets and dies too. They allow you to make your cards say exactly what you need them to say. The heart on this is from the Little Lovin’ set. 🙂

Paper Smooches: Squeaky Clean + Squeaky Clean Icon Dies, Alphadot, Mom Word Die, A Little Lovin‘, Power Rays.

that sucks…

hawkins_jill_that sucks_Mega high last post, to low this post… I felt this card was fitting, due to the recent news of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine ceasing publishing after February. Not cool. Good people losing jobs they love and do so well. An AWESOME magazine. Incredible pool of talent. ack 😦 More on a future date.

Tomorrow I’ll get back to :). For now, a 🙂 : This is a fun stamp set by Paper Smooches 🙂

(edited: I’m going to include this for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge this week–Anything Goes!)
