CIC 518 Week 2

Today begins our second week of challenge Mother's Day or Someone Special Feminine

For my card I used 
A Faery Ink Digital Stamp - Crochet Knitting Girl

Appropriate because I LOVE to crochet (and cats) for the charity 
Project Linus!
We make blankets for children 0 - 18 that are in need.  Mainly for all the local hospitals and children's services. There are chapters all over the U.S. 

For the background of my card, I watercolored using shimmering watercolors that I hadn't touched in years.

Hope all you Mother's and Mother figures out there enjoy your special day!

CIC517 Week 1

Thank you for stopping by today!

We begin a new challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations every other Monday. And, today our challenge theme is PASTELS.

On this card is used an oldie but sweet stamp from The Angel Co.
It is called: Fibi & Lilly.  I love cats and have always loved this stamp.
So glad I had a reason to pull it out again.
I say "Don't be afraid to use your stash!"

I hope you hop by the challenge and play along with us!
