True or False Quiz time!

Are you ready? Here we go!
 
( oh, evidently I was not ready, lol )

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I admit I was distracted yesterday, the sun was shinning, the birds were singing and I had cabin fever. I spent the afternoon out on my balcony cleaning, and pre-planning what flowers I want to try this summer...lol...I say try because it's a rather shady spot, and flowers and shade aren't the easiest combination for growing beautiful flowers, foliage, yes.

So working on a card was distracting...so being that I was in a scattered state of mind I went with a base that I could work on, and then walk away from and back into the sun as needed. I decided to create a mosaic base, and once it was finished I gave it a light swipe with some gesso..looks like tile to me. The pieces of paper are all from my scrap bin..which is growing larger and needs to be worked from!

#27 of 30 Mother's Day cards in 30 days which I am entering in:

Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 260 Anything Goes
 
 
 

Really Reasonable Ribbon - twine
Maya Road - flower ( pink felt flower, also cut apart to make 2 flowers )
Helmar - 450 ( used to adhere flower parts )
Ranger - Distress marker
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
And being that today is St. Patrick's Day...I saved my most favorite card to share with you!
OK, the card may not be that great, but I love the paint brush!! lol
I had the most fun with this, I sewed the brown bristles, glued on the green fiber. Embossed the brush handle and used flashing tape for the band. It was a blast making it!

Hi Sandee, the Mother's Day card is beautiful, love how you used some scraps. For me the star of the show is the paint brush - it looks so realistic! Wowzers girl, that was a genius idea, it is amazing - you are so talented. Oh yes, very funny at the end too..... Hugs, Anne x

Big hug,

Happy St. Paddy's day to you! Your mosaic card is lovely (and I bet helped you feel less distracted as I know you have to focus to create such a background!) But the paintbrush card is my favorite as that brush is too amazing. You are so creative to come up with this as as town across america have their streets painted today, it is PERFECT.

I love that paintbrush. I seriously had to look at it several times to make sure it wasn't a real brush. Fantastic!
