I am married to a wonderful guy and he is also my best friend.I am a SAHM with 3 children~ 2 great sons and 1 special needs daughter, who is very special to me! Having a daughter with Down Syndrome has enriched our lives in ways we did not think possible. She is a wonderful gift from God. Because of her I have chosen to be the voice of hope for a little girl, also with Down Syndrome, but without the love of a family. It is my mission to fundraise for her so her orphan days can soon be over, and she too, can know what its like to be part of a loving family.

FIFTH AVENUE FLORAL
I have been trying all day to post this, and blogger was not playing nice. Finally, here it is. I made several Mothers Day cards for my family members with the SU set Fifth Avenue Floral. I used the watercolor technique, which is quite popular with this set. Its outlined flowers make it perfect to emboss and watercolor with your Aquapainters. Its alot of fun. I changed each card up just a bit, so no one will be getting exactly the same card. That way, I could also play with alot of color combinations. Who knew reinkers come come in so handy?
I am partial to blues, so this card is my favorite of the bunch. I actually kept this one for myself.
All of them also use the SU Top Note Die, and Cuttlebug Embossing Folder in - you guessed it!! Swiss Dot!!!
Cant get enough of that one~
Here is one with pinks and a touch of coral.
This one uses Summer Sun, Cameo Coral, and A tiny bit of Pumpkin Pie. I think it looks nice against the blue. Leaves are cut with the SU Little Leaves die. The MOM sentiment is from one of the new SU sets.
