    Do what you love!

    Sometimes all it takes is a quite moment and a good cup of coffee to make everything seem possible again!  That was the inspiration behingd this card:

    The images are from Starving Artistamps!
    The mom is "Madge" from the Doodlefactory "Tis the Season" set.  And the porch swing is from the Juniper and Jupiter "Swingers" set.

    The coolest thing about the "Swingers" set is that the other sitting images from DoodleFactory and Juniper and Jupiter all fit on the swing and bench!!!  VERY COOL!

    • Madge and the bench were colored with Copic markers.   
    • I stamped the images with Memento ink on Bristol (Smooth) paper.  
    • The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye and Cosmo cricket.   
    • The sentiment embellishment is from Making Memories.
    • The card is a 5" x 7" card.
    I just hope my Mother's Day weekend has a quiet moment like this one--but it isn't likely.

    These are such fun images to work with!! 
    Thanks for stopping by.
