Mother's Day Digi Darlas

Good morning everyone! I can't believe tomorrow is Mother's Day!! Today I am going to take my mother to our church. They are having a BBQ Fundraiser this weekend. We are going to go over there and have a nice BBQ plate with everyone. It is going to be a beautiful day to be outside too! It should be fun :) And then tomorrow will be my day to do nothing HAHA! Just what I want! I can hang out and color or do whatever I want! Isn't that what is supposed to happen on Mother's Day? hehehe

That will be the weekend...  a bit of a relaxed weekend I'm hoping. The weekends really do go by too quickly.  What else is going on with everyone?  My oldest, Taylor, finished up her finals this week at University. She will finish up with A's and B's for this semester. She isn't really keen on her Accounting or Finance professors. She took five (5) classes this past semester too. I think it was a bit overwhelming for her. I think she will go down to four (4) classes again as it seemed more manageable. And with Taylor, she wants all A's and it was a lot harder to get that with the extra class. She felt like one class was always getting neglected. Good on her for wanting to do well. I'm really proud of her.

My other two have two more weeks left in High School. They have their End of Course Testing next week and the following week. From what they tell me, everyone is passing everything. That means that Michael will pass math and that is HUGE! But his teacher is making him do the work and he is succeeding. After school is out I'm sending him to his sister for the summer. He says that he wants to come back after summer and finish at Allatoona. With that said, his sister and I have spoken and Michael can graduate on time, the end of next year, if he gets through three math classes. The only way I can see him successfully doing that is with his sister's help. She is a whiz at math and she will be able to help him. I am not able to help him because I can't remember half of that stuff. It has just been too long since I've done any of that. Her and I talked about it and we will see if she can convince him to stay up there and get through his last year. Time will tell :)

Well... that is all the rambling I will do! Here is a Mother's Day card from me:

This is an image from Digi Darla's, who is no longer around. The image is Loving Arms. I've colored this with Copic Markers. I created the wall and floor around the image of the mother and baby on the chair. I've added the little porcelain flowers, some skittles, twine and charm. The Happy Mother's Day is stamped. I've managed to use all scraps for this card. The banner is die cut as are the corners on the inside. I added some additional skittles on the inside as well. I have done a small amount of layering on the image.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
  • Baby Blanket: B000, B00, B01, B02, B04
  • Dress: R000, R20, R22
  • Chair: G03, G09, G19, G29
  • Chair & Floors: E34, E35, E37, E39
  • Wall: B0000, B000, B00, B01, RV04
  • Baseboard: T0, T1, T3
  • Hair: E21, E25, E27, E29
