Only an hour

I haven't been spending a lot of time in the studio lately because I have not felt like playing.   In the last month I have only made the flowers in the previous posts and a card for Mom.   I did stamp some images and took them along with my watercolor pencils to "color" while I was sitting with her.   Today I made myself go into the studio.  I told myself I only had to spend an hour in the studio and only had to  make one card.

A while back I posted a challenge to have 60 Mothers' Day Cards and 60 "all occasion" cards made and in the mail to Operation Write Home by March 15.  At this point it's a pretty safe bet that I am not going to have that many cards ready to send, but I still want to send as many as I can.  (Guess I work well under pressure! lol)  I decided to make a Mother Day card in my hour to send to Operation Write Home.

The hour I spent in the studio turned into about an hour and 10 minutes.  I completed these two cards, the sunflowers are a couple of the images I "painted" while keeping Mom company.

The butterfly on the card on the left is more orange-ish in person.  The tag on the card on the right actually hangs from the stem so it's not covering up the other leaf or a bee.

I worked on a third card, but it wasn't coming together, so I left it in pieces for another time.

Speaking of Operation Write Home, they are having a "Spring Break" blog hop on Saturday, March 20, 2010. If you haven't already joined, click on the link for more information about being a stop on the hop.  I have signed up to be a stop.  I will be offering a prize (for leaving a comment), a challenge and maybe a tutorial!  Hope you will be able to come and play on the 20th!

Take care,



  1. So easy to lose track of time when you're creating! Lovely cards Linda! And for such a great cause, what a generous spirit you have. Good for you!

  2. I love sunflowers and I think these are wonderful cards.
