Fabulous Friday: Another Mother's Day Card

Good morning girls! It's Friday!!! And that means so many fabulous things doesn't it?
1. Free image over at Sugar Creek Hollow on the blog.
2. And the store is now located on it's on website here's the NEW LINK to the store - Tracy just released the new images for May. You've got to see all the creations from the team today and then head to the store. The sets are perfect for Father's Day and Summer and Graduation. So many uses for them. I have what seems like a thousand ideas in my head for these sets. Now to just get them to fruition!!
3. The weekend is upon us! My sister and her husband will be coming to town for Mother's Day and her birthday so I'm really, really excited about getting to spend some time with the family! You? Big plans?
4. It's the Mother's Day Carnival over at Craft Critique!

Today the designers have created an easel card for Mother's Day. I chose to use one of the images from Summer Picnic and a play on words to create this card today.

I have been on such a red and black kick lately huh? Hope you are liking it as much as me! I used Prismacolor Pencils and baby oil to color the rind on my watermelon and then pieced the red dotted paper over it. This card has two of my favorite things: polka dots and gingham!! Can't get enough of it!!  I kept the layout simple and matted the watermelon on some white cardstock that I embossed using the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I love this clean and crisp and simple look!
The sentiment was computer generated and then cut out and matted for the inside. I popped it up on dimensionals just a bit so that it would help hold the card up when it's in the easel formation.

Go see what the rest of the designers have created today. I know Linda and Kelly aren't posting a card today but there is still plenty of beauty out there to see!
