Life's Little Pleasures

Mother's Day kind of snuck up on me this year for some reason. I ended up having to buy (*gasp*) almost all of my MD cards... I refused to buy all of them though, so I took the time to make one. This was the card Henry sent to his Godmother. The inside reads "Take Time to Enjoy Life's Little Pleasures". It's such a simple card, but I'm really pleased with the outcome.

As I was coloring the pink flowers, all I kept hearing in my head was Shelby Eatenton saying, "Mah colors are blush and bashful." and her mother replying with, "Her colors are pink and pink!" ;o) Now who (besides Deb!) knows what movie that is from?

Stamps: Great Impressions Flower Pot, SU! Scatter Kindness jumbo wheel
Paper: Whisper White, Barely Banana, Gable Green, Green Galore
Ink: Basic Black, Green Galore

This card is so cute! I love the bright cheery colors! I also know what your movie quote is from....Steel Magnolias! I LOVE that movie.

This is a cute card. That wheel goes well with that image. Nice bright colors. It's a shame you didn't get a chance to make more cards, but that happens sometimes.

Very cute card! Is it Steel Magnolias like Veronica said? I haven't seen that movie in so long I wouldn't know!

Heather said...

Why that's Steel Magnolias, of course! "It looks like that church was hosed down in Pepto Bismol."

I love this- it's not too overbearing but it's detailed. So cute!!!
