Inkspiritional - Challenge #16
 
I struggle with monochromatic. There I said it.

Is there such a thing as a color therapist?
<insert smirk>

( as you see, I haven't planted the begonia yet )

The inside to the sentiment stamp actually has a "miss you"in the center of the circle...but I masked that off so I could stamp the pine cone inside it.
 
Personal Stamp Exchange - pine cone...( is the second oldest stamp set I own, from 1993! )
Autumn Leaves - Talking in Circles stamp
Ranger - Distress paints, mowed lawn, vintage photo
burlap, twine - misc.
Helmar - 450
Renee Lingren - markers
Imagine - Goosebumps
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And a close of my begonia, just love the way the sunlight is shining on it.
Take your time..ohhh and ahhh over it a bit....
ok, let's move on now, shall we?

Even though all my Mother's Day cards are finished, I still needed a few tags for the store.
 
entering them in:
Really Reasonable Ribbon - #70 Mother's Day theme with ribbon
 

 3 more that I made :)
 
Maya Roads - velvet flowers
Really Reasonable Ribbon - twine, ribbon
assorted letters and papers from scrap
Cricut - Doodlecharms, p. 85

You are a machine!! I could never keep up like you do. Those MOM hearts/tags are adorable.

And your monochromatic card is sweet. Of course, that begonia isn't monochromatic (grin).

BTW, besides taking care of Sally's sick cat while she's out of town for several days, I also spent time cleaning house today. Now I know when I'm supposed to do it (during the rainy season-grin).
