Cowslip For Mother

I have all the cards sent out for Mother's Day this year to my daughters and daughter-in-law but I made one more to wish all of you mothers a wonderful day as well. I chose to use the Power Poppy Cowslip from the Spring Borders One digital stamp set. I computer generated the sentiment.


Once I had it printed out I then colored the design with my Zig Clean Color markers. They are a water based marker with little brushes on the ends.  I did my best to try and control the coloring so that I did not got too much outside the lines. These are a bit tricky for me with my arthritic hands but I must say I am very pleased with the look so I am content. I also brushed a bit of blue around the design too. I hope you like it and that everyone will have a great Sunday when all Moms are to be celebrated.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Mod Squad Blog Challenge-A Day for Mothers
Double D Challenge-Lavenders~Lilac~Purple Challenge

I don't know if I will be posting anymore this week. I am baby sitting with my youngest grandkids Friday and I might have some guests pop in over the weekend too so I am in cleaning mode again. We will try to do distancing visiting but in person this time. Maybe if it is not raining we will have a  picnic with chairs wide spread apart. We will figure something out at any rate. So in the meantime take care.

God bless,
Verna

What a beautiful card Verna - and so beautifully coloured. Love it.
Looks as thought we will be able to visit friends soon, as we are gradually coming out of lock down... although I think social distancing will be something we have to live with for a while yet! Enjoy your visitors and grand children.
Stay safe
Blessings

This is just gorgeous and your coloring is amazing! I wish you the best mother's day as well, and I hope you have fun with your family. This social distancing is not for human beings. Our neighbors came down last week and we sat on the porch for a couple hours. We're all fine and none of us have any regrets! As soon as the weather gets nice again, we'll do it all over too. Happy Mother's Day!

You are so thoughtful, Verna, and it shows in your beautiful card creations. One of my favorite things to do was to make cards for women who were not blessed enough to have children, and who wanted them. I reminded them that their nurturing attitude toward their friends and children of friends, revealed their love and highlighted that mother's love inherent in most women. They always were moved to tears and thoroughly enjoyed the cards. Wishing you a wonderful day as well, Verna! hugs, de

Judy Woodland said...

Such a pretty design. I see that flower is called a cowslip, but I would swear it looks just like what we call primrose. You have colored the image beautifully in any case. Great take on the challenge, thank you so much for participating this week at the Mod Squad Challenge So glad you decided to enter.

Gorgeous flower image colored beautifully! Love the soft blue background, too! I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!

Leslie Miller said...

You colored this sweet flower beautifully, Verna! Looks like the Zigs worked quite well for you. I have forgotten these are commonly called Cowslip. I like that! I've known them as Primula, but I like Cowslip better.
