Happy Mothers Day

Hope everyone had a sweet Mother's Day!

I had the blessing of spending the day with my kids, my mom, and my granny - sort of a historical day for me, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We went to church in the morning, then met Granny for Chinese in the afternoon. After lunch we went to downtown Spokane and the Riverwalk, and I got to ride a 99-year-old carousel with the kids - the older 2 rode the up-and-down horses, and I stood between the younger two, one on a stationary tiger, and one on a bench.

I gave this hummingbird card to my mom yesterday - she loves hummingbirds, and also that shade of blue. And it was Mother's Day after all...! The image is watercolored, but on regular cardstock. It works, but tends toward a more blotchy background. Sometimes that works, and sometimes not. I kind of like the effect in nature images. All stamps are from smARTworks. The Hummer set comes with so many sweet sayings. The saying on this card is from a set called "My Mother", also a new release.

Also had to share some little treasures from next door - 3 sweet robin's eggs waiting to hatch! Benny wanted to know why they weren't cracking yet...

And isn't that angel sweet?

I've been working today on revamping the smARTworks DT blog into more of a gallery. Head over and see what you think! We're still working on getting all the pictures resized, but you can now view all the entries by designer and by stamp set, and we've even begun showcasing select Customer art! Let us know what you think!

  1. What a wonderful card. Hugs marja

  2. I like the new gallery format, and that you can view by designer and stamp set. Already there's one I don't have... but soon will!
    Is the stock code necessary to order a stamp set? You might link to the catalog page for that # if it is.
    I really like your work, Dina.

  3. Very pretty!! I love hummingbirds!

  4. What fun to head over there and see my card pop up first! Love the new look - also love the cookie banner. :-) And your hummingbird card is gorgeous!
