Super Mom!

mom 2011cu Mother’s day is this Sunday May 8th 2011 and I want to wish all the moms a Happy Day spent with those they love!


For my cards this year I used another image from Kenny Kiernan to which I added Super Mom at the bottom. I was using the Super Mom idea as a theme. I used Copics and Primacolor Pencils with Gamsol to color the images. I added some Viva Décor pearl pen in Crème to the earing and some Smooch in Siren to their lips.

I used the lyrics from the Mom song for a background

Copic compare

I belong to group of Copic Groupies and we have been talking a lot about different papers to use them with. I decided I wanted to compare them all. I made this video and posted it to Youtube.

Here are the pictures from the video
X-Press It
Cryogen White
Neenah Classic Crest- Solar White in Super Smooth
Borden & Ridley #234
Big Art Brand Professional Pen and Ink
Gina K Pure Luxury Base Weight

My favorites are still the Neenah and I like the shimmer of the Cryogen White
and the blendability of the Borden & Ridley.

Let’s Ride

I like riding on the back of Motorcycles; no I don’t want to drive one. So to thank the friend who took me for a ride I made this card.

lets ride

It is a digital stamp from Kenny Kiernan. I colored it with Copic and Prisma Pencils/Gamsol and a metallic pen. I went with gray cause his bike is gray. The inside of this card says “WEEEEEEEEEE!”


It has been a ride since I last posted here. My cousin was injured cleaning his gun. My brother suffered Hypoxia and is now in a nursing home but from January to now its been a long hard ride watching him suffer. Several other friends are seriously ill.

Through all of it my stamping buddies and Jesus have sustained me!
