Mother's Day

Hi All. I'm back and feeling 100% better. Thanks to everyone of you for your well wishes.
So, for the past 2 days I've been working on a Never-ending Card. This one was made special for my Mom for Mother's Day, I know I'm a little early with this one but I tend to make cards at the very last second and for once I decided to get it done on time. I think she'll be happy to get this card, its definitely the most complicated one I've made for her. And thanks to my friend Regena for tips on decorating it, that definitely has to be the worst part about making them but in the end the effort is all worth it.
The paper I used comes from a pack of paper from the Dollarama, my most favorite store in Canada. Love the choices and prices on certain products and paper is one of them.
The row of black rhinestones on the front of the cards come from a blog candy I won from Theresa. I absolutely love them. Thanks Theresa.
All the word art was printed out using The Print Shop Pro. I love that program cause its perfect for changing and altering certain projects. The flowers are Fred She Said flowers. Love them too but something I think too much cause I've been using them on almost all my cards lately. Anyway that's pretty much it so enough with my rambling.

Finally...A Card

Life has been keeping me busy for the last few weeks. And to make it all worst I came down with the flu yesterday. Sure hope I can finish writing this post. I have to get it dome.
I've been working on a Magnolia card for the past week. Took every second of spare time I had. It seems like forever sine I made one. I was looking up tutorials on coloring with copics and found quite a few good ones but it will take me some time to get the techniques mastered. I won the copics a few weeks ago from Audrey and I love them. I did some research online on finding some storage shelves and I came across a neat one. My father-in-law, who by the way is a genius, offered to build me one. I think it turned out great, here's a pic for you to see. Pretty cool, huh?
Anyway enough with that, now onto my card. The image is my first attempt ever at coloring with copics. The dress should look like pleats but to me it clearly didn't turn out like it should have. The chain down the side under the bow comes from a pair of sandals. I took them apart to just to get the chain and I'm so glad that I did. I think it looks very nice and adds a nice touch. Sorry for having to keep this post so short but I'm not feeling too good and I have to leave it like this. Here are some pics of the card...
