Happy Mother’s Day

A good day to all and a Happy Mother’s Day (albeit a tad anticipated) to all mothers old and new. Most of the time mothers are under-appreciated for all the sacrifices made. Granted, there are some bad mothers out there but for the most part, there really is no “how to” book on being a mother. One just goes with the flow and does the best that she can given certain circumstances.

Buona giornata a tutti e Buon Festa della Mamma (anche se anticipata) a tutte le mamme.  Le mamme spesso sono sottovalutate perché fanno tanti sacrifici. Certo, ci sono cattive madri nel mondo ma la maggior parte sono buone e danno tanto amore perché non esistono manuali d’uso, si fa quello che si può considerando certe circostanze.

Today’s card is a digi stamp from Bugaboo. It’s called “Make it Snappy – Floral Mom’s Day” card. I just adore it. I was playing around with my Copics with a turquoise background with colorful flowers. I loved it but messed up big time when I glued the image onto the colored cardstock. I tried to gently tear it off to no avail, so I then cut around it to save it….made it even worse so I chucked that baby and did a new one. I decided to go for a more monochromatic look. The back ground cardstock needed something so I just drew in the same flowers using my white gel pen. There are hints of green to make things pop a bit. I added some Wink of Stella to give a hint of shimmer in the flower centers then added Glossy Accents on top.

Il bigliettino di oggi è un timbro digi da Bugaboo. Si chiama “Make it Snappy – Floral Mom’s Day”. Lo adoro. Stavo colorando con i miei Copics lo sfondo turchese con fiori colorati che, mi è piaciuto molto, ma ho fatto un “boo boo” quando ho incollato l’immagine sul cardstock colorato. Ho provato a strapparlo delicatamente senza successo così ho tagliato intorno per salvare l’immagine …. senza successo, così ho dovuto rifare tutto. Ho deciso di usare un aspetto monocromatico. Il cardstock di fondo aveva bisogno di qualcosa in più così ho disegnato gli stessi fiori usando la mia penna gel bianca. Ci sono tocchi di verde per finire. Ho aggiunto un po ‘di Wink di Stella per dare un tocco di scintillante nei centri dei fiori poi aggiunto Glossy Accents.

I hope you enjoy this card. I really like how it turned out and now I have my Mother’s Day card for next year! 🙂

Spero che ti piace questa cartolina. Mi piace molto come è venuta e ora ho la mia cartolina per la  festa della mamma per il prossimo anno! 🙂

Ciao e un abbraccio,
