The Orchid Show

Hello friends,
 To all the mommies & those who are like moms to those in need of one, I wish you a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!
Since I am a Latina, I get to celebrate mom's day TWICE. Many countries in Latin America celebrate Mother's Day on May 10th---> and so do I! Annnnd... I also celebrate it on the 2nd Sunday in May *Ü* One of my sons takes care of one and my other son takes care of the other. I always thought it was a good idea to have 2 sons *Ü* hehehe. Well, on May 10th, I got a Big Bang Theory poster. Don't know where I'll put Sheldon, Leonard, Howard, & Raj yet... can't wait to see what I get on Sunday! Hope it's a "Bazinga" T-shirt :) I've been dropping hints about it :)

Today, I'm sharing two cards I made for my Grammy. The first is her birthday card.
Here it is:
Grammy & I L-U-V orchids, so that's what I made for her. These beauties are from Flourishes. I stamped them on Shimmer white cardstock & heat embossed in gold.

Here's a peek at that.

 I fussy cut around them so I could pop them up.
I scattered a few gold sequins & sprinkled a few gold pearls with my Viva pen.

The next card is for Mother's Day.
Here it is:
 Again, I used Shimmer white cardstock. The orchids came from the "Orchid" Cheery Lynn die. Luuuv!
Here's a closer peek at them:
 These were easy to create (unlike some other orchids I've tried in the past). I inked the middles in Cameo Coral. I also added a little Flower Soft for the soil. (Yes, that's an Anna folder :)

Here's a side peek:

This is a GREAT die. I know I'll be making more in lots of colors *Ü*!

 I used this week's Sweet Stop sketch: (rotated)

I'll also play along in the following challenges:
Cheery Lynn Designs: Lots of Layers
Our Creative Corner: Anything Goes
Chocolate, Coffee, & Cards: Mother's Day
Cut it Up: Mother's Day
Paper Crafting Journey: Anything Goes
Divas by Design: Anything Goes
Celebrate the Occasion: Mother's Day

I've got 1 1/2 weeks of school left! Yaaaay!!! but that also means it is the busiest time of the year. So it might be a bit quiet on the blog front for a while.

Thanks so much for peeking today!
Have a goodie!
