A Day With Mom

Hello everyone! I hope all of you had a great Mother's Day, hubby and I celebrated on Saturday with his Mom and Sunday with my Mom. Conflicting schedules made it hard to celebrate all together. Today is a new challenge with Sassy Cheryl's!! There are lots of images to choose from at the store, but image I am using today is appropriately called A Day With Mom.
I think this was perfect for my Mom, since she had 2 girls (my sister and I). We were and still are very close with each other. The challenge is to create a card or project with this sketch.


After I have colored my image and pieced the card together, I added some crystal lacquer to the balloons to make them shiny. One of the things I love to add to my card are dew drops. I know that some of you may be thinking that they are an embellishment of the past BUT, I think they add the perfect touch since they are not too big or too small, and they come in all different kinds of colors too! You will have 1 week to join us for the challenge, and I hope you do! For more inspiration from the DT, just click on their names:
Alina, Ann, Cathy, Chrissy, Christa, Dawn L., Heather, Jackie, Judy, Kim, Peggy, and Tracy.
Have a good one!!
