HM Multiples Challenge


This week's challenge at House Mouse was "Multiples". That meant multiple images of the same image or a combination of different stamps entirely. The DT did some amazing cards and employed clever ideas. I combined two different stamps and it made my card an unusual size. It actually fit perfectly on top of a box I ordered awhile ago from PTI so I pondered using it that way and decorating the box. But alas, being the "have to be practical" person that I tend to be, I wasn't sure what to put in the box. I'm sure I would have thought of something but probably not in time to post to the challenge. I mean I'm already close to the deadline now, right?! So, I made it a card for now. I used "Berry Please" and "Eating Blueberries" in a combo and it made me think of a mother's love which of course turned it into a Mother's Day card. Beyond a mother's love it makes me think of God's love and how He takes care of us so faithfully, even in the little things. I colored the images with my Copics and the sentiments are computer generated. Be sure to check out the cards the DT did - they really are clever. Thanks so much for stopping by. Your comments are always appreciated and such an encouragement to me. Hugs and have a blessed Sunday.

Your card is amazing Karen! It looks like one image the way you did it instead of two put together. I'm impressed!

Hi Karen,
Your card came together seamlessly, and you are right, it makes me think of maternal love. Perfect image/sentiment combo, and great coloring too!! Everything you've done is very complimentary.
Enjoy your day,
Stephanne

Hi Karen - this is truly amazing!!! You have these images fitting together so perfectly they look like one - there's just one little mousie who seems to have strayed to the wrong Mommy (lol). I just love this to bits!!
