Mom's Birthday! WOYW?W


A busy night...finishing up projects while keeping an eye on the tube for the latest news on Hurricane Sandy that just hit the East Coast of the USA.  Oh my what devastation! My thoughts to all that are in her path.

Not much of a change on my desk upstairs tonight. Wasn't even going to show you, but hey, what the heck! Lots of unfinished Halloween projects stitting around...Sure to be packed  away for next year.

Nothing new to show you except I can show you this pretty that I made for my Mom's 79th Birthday on Sunday. It started as a card, but because the image was so big, the card got bigger with each layer and I ended up just adding a ribbon so she could hang it on the wall instead! I colored this image at the Intermediate Copic Certification class I just took from Sherrie Siemens! The class was awesome!
I cut the pretty matting with my Silhouette and added some ribbon to hang it with.

Well that's it for tonight-off to bed for me. Stay safe my friends! Be sure to pop over to Julia's 'house' and say hello and link up!

I'm sat reading my WOYWW blogs on my sick bed this week but have my mask on so you don't catch anything. I'm enjoying reading what everyone is up to this week [it's better than reading magazines :-) ]. I'm leaving a copied comment so you know I've called by because my hands are too weak and shaky to keep typing out my comments this week.
Big hugs,

That is some really gorgeous coloring! I like the idea to just frame the image and hang it -- maybe all handmade cards should come with ribbons for hanging?

wow! That's really beautiful, Sue! That's so awesome that you got to take a class from Sherrie! She has been one of my blog-land paper crafting heroes for a long time. She can do such amazing things with Copics!

I need to make sure I find out about your next class soon enough to sign up next time, sorry I missed the last one! Have a wonderful day!

I love this shot - great card in the centre of your desk. And do you have one of those dear little coloured edge purses for each colour set of buttons? I want I want!! Your card for your dear Mama is awesome..I literally sat back from the screen as I scrolled to it..amazing colouring.

Bet your Mum loved the wall hanging, she will be able to enjoy more as hanging than a card too! It's very beautiful!

What a beautiful cutting frame from Silhouette and your image of the flowers certainly showed it off. Happy Birthday to your mom. I could sure use my mom around right now for advice and a leaning ear.

Princess Judy Palmer said...
