SISTERHOOD MOTHER'S DAY HOP!



Hey all!! Happy Saturday to you! The weekend is HERE! Woohoo!! And? It is AWESOME weather to boot! Thanks for stopping by!! Today is an EXCITING Saturday, because it is the Stampin' Sisterhood's Mother's Day HOP! Now, as I am sure you know.........Mother's Day is NOT only for Mother's, right? Of course NOT!! Mother's Day is to celebrate that person who is SPECIAL to you too!! The Sisterhood has put together some creations to inspire you! We are SO glad you could join us. I have the HOP details below and if you follow them? You could win a Rubbernecker STAMP SET of your choice! Pretty NICE, right?! Don't forget that we will have ANOTHER hop for you NEXT month and our Sisterhood Sunday Challenges that you won't want to miss!
Ok, a LITTLE about my creation, before you go. I used a direct to paper technique, to create my background. To make this happen, I ran distress ink right across the Kraft cardstock! My teammate Ellen did this a BIT ago? And I HAD to try it!! Thanks for the inspiration Ellen! After that was done I stamped my image and sentiment with Tuxedo Memento Ink. I finished the card off with some distressed charcoal Twinery Twine and Perfect Pearls mist! The Twine was distressed with Spun Sugar distress ink; the mist was made with Biscotti Perfect Pearls and water, in a mini mister! I added some extra photos, hoping to show you the effect? However, I don't know that they do the sparkly mist any justice!! Haha! Hope you enjoyed your stop here and now you must follow the ROUTE below to your next destination!! Have FUN!! Until I see you again.............................ENJOY LIFE!!
