Happy Mother’s Day!

I wish health to all of us, so we can love, care and support our kids as they grow and thrive. A big hug to all moms and grandmoms out there, hope we all have a special day!

Today I am sharing the card I made for my mom.

Those are butterflies from the “veneer wood” collection by Studio Calico and I used my gelatos to color them. Love that vibrant color you can get when using your gelatos direclty on your project.

Here is a closer look:

You can watch the how to video at Lily Pad Cards today or at YouTube.


Thank you all for visiting today!

I will be back on Monday with a project I had in mind for ages and I finally got the time to finish it off! It decorates my craft room… can’t wait to share it with you together with step by step instructions! Stay tuned!
