People Who Leave A Great Impression On Us

Mother's are Patience-Kindness-Laughter-Love

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Great Impressions Blog. Can you believe that Spring is slowly inching its way across the land?
We have hyacinths, daffodils and snow crocus blooming right now. And today I was able to go out without a coat on-whoo-hoo!! It was at least 70°. I am just lovin' it, my friends.

Now onto my card for today. I have started making Mothers Day cards. I make a lot of them to send to my family and friends.

My image is the Great Impressions Stamps -"heap of love" G317 and the word "Mothers" is just a portion of the Stamp - "warmth and love" D388. I thought the words in the image reflected what a Mother is and would be perfect for the special day.

The image is colored with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I wanted to use some bright colors so I chose melon mambo and eggplant as the base colors and designer papers to match. My card is a 4 1/2" square.

I added some pearls for a finishing touch. Well that's it for me for this week. See you again next Friday.
