My mum's first cards and a new sketch on the JCBC blog

Happy Monday everyone,
I just got home from a great morning together with my mum. A lot of you know my mum has been poorly for more then a year now and has been in and out of the hospital for so many times during this period. Because she doesn't go outside much she was looking for something to do with all her time. A few weeks back she wanted to try to colour some images (untill now she was mainly a 3D cardmaker) and today we made a few cards together.

I promissed you to show you her cards when she finally has the time to make some, so here are my mums first cards.... We both hope you like them.

MY MUM'S FIRST CARDS





And today we have a great new sketch made by Kristin on the JCBC blog.

For my card I used papers from My Mind's Eye and a really cute Magnolia stamp from last years christmas collection. The leaves, star and gems are all from stash. When I finished my card I thought something was missing. There's so much open space left, but when I stick to the sketch this is the best I can do.


Thanks for stopping by today.
I hope your day is just as great as mine is.
xoxo Karin

Karin, your mom did a great job on her cards! I'll bet you both had a lot of fun together making them. It's good to hear she's feeling well enough to craft with you.
I love your little card and the way you have her sitting on the garland of punches. Great idea!
