Mother's Day Trio

Good morning! I had to get started on Mother's Day cards so I got them finished over the weekend.

Card #1
This one is for my Mum -
I got the idea for this card from Kristina Werner's card HERE. This stamp set is new to me and I wanted to watercolour the mama and baby bear. It's called Bear Hugs by Mama Elephant.
I used my zig watercolour pens for the colouring. The background is an embossed stamp called Heart to Heart by CAS-ual Fridays.

Card #2
This one is for my step-mum
I used the eclipse technique for this card. The rose is from a set called Merci Beaucoup by Clearly Besotted. The alphabet dies are by MFT. The rose was coloured with Polychromo pencils.

Card #3
This one is for my Nan 
Using the same set by Clearly Besotted I decided to emboss my flowers and mask to create a pretty bunch of roses. Again, I used polychromo pencils to colour the roses.

I would like to enter my cards over at the following challenges -
Card #1 - The Paper Players (Make you Smile), Cute Card Thursday (Feminine), Watercooler Wednesdays (Anything Goes), Shopping Our Stash (Mother's Day)
Card #2 - The Clever Dexter Challenge (Spring Blooms), CAS on Friday (Favourite Flower Stamp), The Card Concept (Mother's Day)
Card #3 - Stamping Sensations (Say it with Flowers), Dare2BArtsy (In the Garden), Creative Moments (April Showers bring May Flowers)


Thank you for popping in today and take care :)
