Mother's Day Cross Sitch & Card-io Stamps

Morning all, ready to start a new week?  :-)

Today I'm sharing my Mother's day card with you.  I cross stitched this little kit about a month before the occasion and then a couple of weeks ago I had the idea to use Card-io Stamps around the aperture and in the corners, fortunately I had just the right coloured ink (Dovecraft Hot Pink) to coordinate with the threads in the picture.  I have used first, second and third generation to create the variegated colours of the flowers.  The leaves are made using Lettuce Adirondack ink.



Creative Blessings. x
