60 Cards for Mum

The past few weeks in between DT projects, a few projects just for me, family stuff and being sick I have been making 60 Cards for my MIL to send to all those family and friends who sent card and flowers for my FIL passing.  Here's a sneak peak at some of my designs.  I tried to keep them fairly CAS due to the quantity required and me not wanting to make 60 of all the same one.  Inside Mum asked me to include a short verse.


Coloured image & layers framing it with a bit of embellishment to finish.  This is the first time I have used this Crafty Individuals Stamp.


Water Colored Rose with a hand drawn frame on white and layered on angled color background.
My Favorite Unity Rose just had to make it on at least one card.


Water Color with Handrawn &/Watercolor Frame.  Dragonflys and Butterflies were used on a few of these cards. This one is from a Ippity Kit by Unity Stamp Co,.


Script and Floral Stamp coloured with Twinkling H20's, layered on colour with added ribbon and bling.
Quite a few of my Darkroom Door Nature/Floral Themed Stamps were used for these cards.


Thanks so much for popping by, I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend.  We have had a week of the most glorious Autumn Days.  My hubby has been cooking today so I am looking forward to some yummy minestrone soup for tea with warm and toasty bread which is such a wonderful meal for the cooler nights which we are now experiencing.  We are however yet to have the fire on.  I think this coming week I will finally need to pull out all my winter clothes and pack my summer ones away.

So glad to see the Darkroom Door stamps getting inked Danie. They create lovely cards so quickly, don't they?
I am sure your MIL will be delighted with the assortment of cards you have for her.

What a wonderful collection for your mother-in-law! How proud she must be when she sends them on to friends and family!

I envy you your autumn days! It is my favorite season and we get so little of it here in Texas.

Danie, your card designs are just lovely. And this is such a nice gift to give your MIL. I'm certain this means the world to her to have handmade masterpieces to send to friends and family. Take care, my friend.
