make a wish

Just a quick post tonight.  I have to get ready for our Mother's Day outing tomorrow.  We always go out for a drive, look for mushrooms, and have a picnic on Mother's Day.  This will be the 5th year of our tradition and I love it.  It's so nice to get away from everything and just spend time as a family.

I do have a card to share really quick.  This week's High Hopes challenge is to create a masculine card.  I decided to use this adorable dragon stamp called Warm Wishes.  I love the High Hopes dragons!  And they are perfect for masculine cards.  I chose some balloon paper from the Cupcake line by Basic Grey and colored my dragon in coordinating colors.  The sentiment and circle stamp are from Papertrey Ink.

Have a Happy Mother's Day!!

Really cute card. What a nice Mother's Day tradition you have started. My kids are grown so on Mother's Day they all come home and do yardwork with us. Doesn't sound like fun, but I love it. It makes quick work of getting the yard back in shape for summer which means I will have more time to stamp.

I just came across your blog today for the first time. That card is adorable! May I ask how you color (meaning pens? what brand? etc.)?
Happy Mother's Day!
