Just Sharin....

Hey there!!  Hope your week has been going well.   Mine has been a little tough and my mojo has flown away. So, thought I would share a couple of cards that are in the May/June issue of CardMaker magazine.   Both are Mother's day cards and use one of my favorite stamps, Hydrangea from Hero Arts and some of my favorite papers from My Mind's Eye.    When I initially made the card and submitted it to CardMaker I made it only in the yellow color scheme.   When I got the acceptance email from CardMaker they requested that I make a second card using the same stamps, but just a different color scheme.  



Thanks for stopping by.... hopefully my mojo will return soon.   And I hope that you will take the time to check out CardMaker magazine.  It is a wonderful papercrafting magazine full of great articles and art work.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft & cream; Stamps:  Hero Arts & PTI; PP:  My Mind's Eye Blush & Sunshine papers; Buttons:  PTI; Lace: unknown; Twine:  May Arts; Ink:  Stampin Up!

Hi, Rosemary! I alwasys look for your cards first in the magazines! I can usually pick them out before looking at the name! LOL These are gorgeous, as usual.

I'm sure your mojo will be back soon - can't keep a good girl down, you know!

Hi, Rosemary! Congratulations, on being published, again! (Greta's comment made me smile.) Both cards are absolutely beautiful! WOW, that is some fabulous cutting on the hydrangeas. I love the design and colors.

These are both wonderful Rosemary and I think it was really very nice of them to ask you to make a second card! What a feather in your cap hey! I think by your older posts that there is nothing wrong with your mojo my friend, but I know what you mean. Sometimes we just don't feel so creative and yet everyone can still admire the beautiful work we do!
