Daffodil Hello

My mom is an avid gardener who loves flowers. Anytime my parents would come visit me, my garden would look beautiful for all the hard work they'd put into it. A good thing, because otherwise, it would be hard to entertain them for three or four weeks at a time. :)

Yesterday, I inked up my brand new Art Impressions Daffodil stamp to make Mother's Day cards for my mom and mother-in-law. Unfortunately, it was one of those days when things don't go smoothly and you wonder if you should just leave it all and return some other time. My colouring wasn't very successful, I dropped a black ink pad on a pre-embossed card (ruining it completely) and I spilled gold embossing powder all over the place. Still, I managed to make the aforementioned cards, as well as a set of floral cards for my mom and a birthday card for our niece's upcoming sweet 16. The list of cards needed was much longer than that, but I think I should be happy with what I accomplished, in light of all the little mishaps, LOL.

The Stamps:
P3342 - Daffodil by Art Impressions

(The very same daffodil stamp is also available in the Love & Joy Clear Set - CS3367 - from the Encouragement Series by Art Impressions)
