So many challenges, so little time....

Sometimes it feels there is just not enough time to do all that I want to do. So, I made this card that meets the criteria for several different challenges...


A Spoon Full of Sugar - Touchy Feely

Cute Card Thursday - Happy Mail

3 Clovers Thursday Challenge - A card for a woman and use ribbon or lace.

Magnolia-licious - Use this sketch...



and here is my multipurpose card...
Stamps: Tilda with Lamb, Shabby Chic Fence, Old Oak Tree
Ink: Memento, Copics
Paper: Orchid Opulence, DCWV Pocket Full of Posies
Embellishments: Prima’s, brads, charm, lace, flower embroidery trim, large oval and oval punches, small scallop edge punch (EK Success), Flower Soft

I added a nice generic sentiment to the card - "Friends are God's way of taking care of us." This was for the Cute Card Thursday Happy Mail Challenge. This is a card I can send to a friend to brighten their day.

Spoon Full of Sugar - Touchy Feely - The Flower Soft gives a nice texture to the card.


3 Clovers Thursday Challenge - Card for a woman and add lace or ribbon. I added this lace with slots to weave in ribbon to soften the bold background paper. I wove in this pretty flower embroidery trim.

I wanted to add this cute cross charm that I found at Walmart to continue the Christian theme of this card.

I hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day. Have a wonderful week!
