Having shared with you previously my extremely belated Mother's Day card for my mum, I'm sure you won't be surprised to hear that I also had an equally belated Mother's Day card for my granny.
|Happy (Mother's) Day|
Again, I went unconventional on the sentiment; I quite liked the quirkiness of it. My gran has always been into gardens and loves flowers so I knew I wanted to work in this seed chart journaling card from OA's Woodland Park line. I pulled out the matching 12x12 patterned pattern and fussy-cut matching flowers as additional embellishments, then used the little phrase banners to fill the empty space on the card.
Next I made a birthday card for a friend who's had a really difficult go of it the last six months.

I really wanted this card to brighten her day so I kept things clean and simple and focused on that message of hope and encouragement. And of course nothing makes me smile quite like beautiful, glittery gold sequins. A simple doodled border added to the light and airiness while keeping everything grounded.
And in case you're wondering, my to-do list of cards hasn't shortened any recently...
