More love for Mom

Thanks to another great digi from Paula, I created another set of Mom cards for my OWH box.  Just four more Mom cards and my box will be evened up with 151 Mom/Mother's Day and 151 year-round sentiments.  I'll be mailing it early this week if all goes to plan.  

The first card uses papers by Pebbles, Inc, a flower by K&Co from the ancient archives of my stash, and miscellaneous ribbon.  The sentiment digi from Paula was recolored in MS Word.  (Click on the digi image in Word.  On the formatting toolbar, choose "picture" then "recolor."  You can choose any custom color.  This doesn't work if you want to only recolor part of the image, however.  I think you need other software for that.)


The second card turned out masculine.  How I managed that, I cannot tell you, since I usually struggle to make a masculine card.  I'll send them anyway because I know there are some moms out there who aren't into girly pinks and purples, so they'll appreciate a modern looking card.  This card uses papers from Making Memories 5th Avenue line and from the Paper Co as well as Paula's digi.

If you're trying to make some more Mother's Day cards for the half and half challenge (see sidebar), consider digis.  They're quick, free or inexpensive, and a practical way to increase the number of images you can use.  Thanks Paula, for sharing your digis! 

Cards shipped to OWH in 2012: none thus far, but my box is filling up nicely! I'll finally have a number to put here this week-hooray!

  2. Wow that is a lot of cards! Great job. I like the use of the different colors in the second card. There are moms who do like "girly" colors.
