Mother's Day

Happy Monday, everyone! Monday means it's time for another Cheers & Challenges Eager Eight (CCEE) challenge that I do with a group of friends. You can check out my sidebar to see everyone who is a part of this group.

Our challenge hostess for May is Deb Mills, also known as 88keys on Splitcoaststampers (SCS). I am looking forward to all the wonderful challenges Deb has in store for us this month. For today's challenge Deb decided that with Mother's Day being only a week away that it was a good time to make a Mother's Day card.

For my card I chose to use this Holly Pond Hill image called Watering the Garden because she reminds me of a mama rabbit and she also symbolizes how much my mother loves to garden. Even though this card is 5 1/4" square, the image still takes up a large amount of space, so I chose to keep my card simple today and will need to put my Mother's Day sentiment on the inside.

I colored my scene with Copic markers and sponged bashful blue around a cloud template for my sky. I used my octagon Nestabilities for the shape and Stampin' Up's designer paper.

We'd love it if you played along with us. All you have to do is create a Mother's Day card and link it to our CCEE stampers blog (http://cceestampers.blogspot.com/). If you upload your card/project to Splitcoaststampers, don't forget to include the keyword CCEEC. We can't wait to see what you create!
