New MME's "Indie Chic Citron" Mother's Day

Excellent timing in that I received my order of scrumptious My Mind's Eye new "Indie Chic" line of 6x6 pads on the very last day that I could finish up a Mother's Day greeting for my dear Mom-in-law and get it mailed off to Texas in time.  I used the "Citron" pad and one of A Day for Daisy's sweet bird digistamps, which I colored, embossed, pieced and popped.  I like how it turned out, probably mostly because I LOVE this paper line and that sweet bird.   Wish I were more skilled at photograpy to pick up dimension.   Maybe when my sweet very talented friend Wendy (Mrs. B) and her hubby come for a visit next month she can teach me some tricksies to use the expensive camera Steve bought me.  Anyway, off to the mailbox with fingers crossed it arrives on time.

Bazzill CS, MME dp, MS doily punch;  Dies: SB Labels 2, Circles, Lacey Circles, Fancy tags, CB corner, Copics and Prismacolor pencils; Foam dots, Recollections pearls, Colorbox creamy brown ink; can’t remember where I got the sentiment stamp, ribbon from stash (used the bow easy for my bow).
Hope you each are having a terrific week...it's hump day for all you workaday folks so cheer up, the weekend is in sight (oh how well I remember)!
