Morning Soft Mother's Day

Today didn't start off all that great, this morning I ended up slamming my finger in a drawer and overflowing my laundry tub all before 7:30am. I felt like climbing back into bed. This was not the first time I've heard the sound of rushing water flowing over the laundry tub, (sad to say) this time my daughter had a shirt soaking in the tub with the plug in, I think I must have needed more coffee before I started trying to be productive this morning.
Anyhoo, this is another card that we made at stamp camp last night. I had ordered this Morning Soft stamp set because I loved the saying that went with it so much so I decided to use it for creating a Mother's Day card.
I used Always Artichoke for the card base and the mat for the Mother's Day saying and Mellow Moss with the Floral Background stamp for the 4x5 1/4" piece. I used my Stampin' Up watercolor pencils to color the morning glory's and an aqua brush and Artichoke ink pad to color the leaves. The Barley Banana piece was stamped with the Stitched background stamp and most of the pieces were sponged using either Artichoke, Lavender Lace or Barley Banana. I also used two punches, the ticket punch and the Horizontal slot punch for on the saying.
Thanks for stopping by!

Your coloring is WONDERFUL! I love this card. This card makes me think of Julie Andrews singing on a mountain top for some reason. Haha LOL!!!!!! It's so springy! Oh, boy. I think I'm up way too late, I'm delirious. It's 3 am in Hawaii right now. And what am I doing? Going through your amazing blog. I love your cards. Your style is just pretty. Pretty, pretty, pretty. It's very girly, which I totally like. Thanks for sharing your work! And thanks for your nice comments at SC.
