Momma Bird, Baby Birds

Good Sunday afternoon to you all on this beautiful Palm Sunday! It's a busy day in the life of church musician, but it's one in which we get to share stunning music to celebrate a very special time in the liturgical year.

Despite our busy singing schedules, Whitney and I have carved out some time the last several days to bring some new products to you. Not only is it a busy time of year for singers, but it's also a busy time of year for card companies! So many special moments are to be celebrated in the next several months. Yesterday, Whitney shared our graduation offerings. And today, I'll be sharing the first of four selections for Mother's Day.

We recently got some new stamps and have been so anxious to get them all inky! This adorable set from Papertrey Ink lent itself perfectly to a Mother's Day selection. The color scheme is straight from TCP Tuesday #147 (pink, chocolate, teal) and the sketch is based on a card layout I saw somewhere in my recent blog hopping.

We wanted to offer a wide array of styles for Mother's Day. Today's card is sweet and whimsical. To give some more dimension to this cute scene of momma bird with her charges, I popped up several of the birds, along with the entire image panel. It's a very simple design really, but it's oh so effective in conveying its sweet message of the love of mother and children. Don't you think? I really love the way it turned out.

Thanks for stopping in today. Hop back by this week to see our other Mother's Day selections. Now I'm off to get ready for a big performance!
