My Mother's Day Gift/~Sympathy Cards!

Happy Sat.!!

Hi~ya All!!

WOW!! Is it ever hot here. We are having a hot weekend, it is 98 degrees here and it is suppose to hit the triple digits tomorrow. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend, and staying cool. I wanted to share with you my Mother's Day gift from my daughter. She surprised me with a photo studio, which was delivered yesterday. What a nice surprise, I wasn't expecting anything. Although it arrived a few days late, it was a big surprise to me, because she just wished me a happy mother's day on the actual day. I love it, and it is so much better than having to use my ott lite. When I am photographing a shot that has mirror image, it tends to give off a glare, and messes with the actual colors. Here are a couple of cards that I shot with my new toy. I can already tell, I'm going to love this! Oh, and I made a promise to myself to use up some of the cut card stock and papers I have in my stash. These cards are from my stash. These are pieces that I have had in a drawer which are excellent for matting a card. Maybe I should start a challenge to use up your stash.
The first card is made with a coated vellum that I used on my Moms Mother's day card last year.
The second card is gorgeous, love that pearlescent on the gold mirror image. These were the other two sympathy cards that I needed to make. Well, I'm working on something for a much more happier occasion. Will catcha later!
