A Peacock and a Card

Happy Friday! Another late post, another busy day! I went to the Cincinnati Zoo with Anna and her kindergarten class today. We packed a lot into a few hours! I think love was in the air among the animals today -- the male monkeys were putting on quite a show, and the peacocks were strutting their stuff! The peacocks and peahens roam freely around the zoo, and rarely have I seen so many males with their feathers extended. I snapped a photo of one of them -- isn't he beautiful?

Anyway, I have a Mother's Day card to share with you. The image and sentiment are by Gina K. Designs. The flower image is from the set Comfort and Peace, her "Free with Three" set this month. The sentiment is from Kindred Greetings for Her, part of her Kindred Spirits line of stamps. The background is the Scalloped Lace Backgrounder by Cornish Heritage Farms. I won the backgrounder during CHF's Backgrounder Blitz a couple weeks ago! Woohoo! :)

The card design is pretty simple. The backgrounder is stamped in White Craft ink. I inked the flower image with SU! markers, and the sentiment is stamped in Basic Gray. I embellished with some ribbon and Primas, and that's it!

I'm off to another volleyball tourney with Megan tomorrow -- it's gonna be another long day! I hope you have something fun planned for your weekend! Thanks for stopping by today -- I really appreciate your visits and comments so much! :)
