It’s time for the Festive Friday Challenge, where every challenge is a party! For FF0007, we are honoring Mother’s Day, which is celebrated on May 13. The twist this challenge is “And/Or Pink”. You can create a Mother’s Day card, or a card featuring the color pink, or a pink Mother’s Day card! Any way you decide to create is fine with us! We would love to have you play along, so don’t forget to link up.

This week I created a pink card designed with my mother in mind.  Although she passed away many years ago, sometimes I will find myself sitting … thinking … missing her.

This clean and cute card is surprisingly simple to create.  Watercolor washes provide the back drop for the adorable bulldog reposing on a die cut bench.

Don’t you adore the quizzical look on this pup’s face? I love bulldogs.

I’m also in love with this potted plant.  I wouldn’t mind having a few of these for my back porch! Of course, every plant deserves a Share What You Love Artisan Pearl, available in the new catalog.  A double Powder Pink bow and snippet of ribbon was added as a finishing touch.
