Mother's Day Card

This is the Mother's Day card I made for my daughter, Nance of Canopy Crafts.
As you can see I used SU stamp set Watercolor Trio. A funny thing happened while using my inks. I was using Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Crushed Curry. I had forgotten I inked the flower stamp with Crushed Curry and then (without cleaning the stamp) I inked it with Razzleberry, hence the unusual color of the one stamping of the flower stem on the far right. I've done this before, but usually it was a planned thing, this was strictly by accident...and I liked it (I think this color would be called Razzlecurry) ! Of course, I had to stamp the envelope just a little bit too!

Finally I can post two cards I made for "gal pals" back in Mi., for their birthdays. We usually celebrate all three birthdays at our weekly golf outing, but I was MIA this year, still in Florida! Anyhow if you go to one of my friend's blog you will see what our Cupcake Open is all about. The following two cards were made for two of the gals in this golf league, Diane and Michele. Both cards were cased from my daughter, Nance (why mess with a good thing)!
Happy (belated) birthday to both of you!

This is the inside of the "car" card for Michele.
