Watercolor Daffodils for Mothering Sunday

Now if you follow my blog at all or just want to scan down a few entries you will probably realize you have already seen this image...

I, however, have to share the story behind this card.  I shall be brief.

  1. Follow the fantastic Frugalcrafter Lindsay's tutorial on how to draw and watercolor daffodils. Check.
  2. Post it on blog. Check.
  3. Put in box to make into Mothering Sunday card for MIL so it will be on time. Check.
  4. Forget to look up when Mothering Sunday is in England.  Check.
  5. Find out it is Mothering Sunday in England the day before Mothering Sunday. Check.
  6. Pull out watercolored Daffodils and mount on cheerful cardstock and stamp greeting.  Check.
  7. Blog about it several weeks later. Check.

So here are the small amendments.  When it was already late I went with less is more.

Card size - 8.5 in x 5.5 in 
Cardstock - Watercolor paper; Recollections
Stamps - Hero Arts "Celebrate Everyday" ? (doesn't have a name on the packaging that I can find
Ink - Memento (? Bamboo?)
