Handmade cards for Mom's Day

Here are two Mother's Day cards I had fun making on this overcast Christchurch day! The basketweave stamp is a traditional Maori design and the Paua (say 'pow-ah') shell is a favorite symbol of New Zealand. I colored the Paua shell with Copic markers. The paper is a little more purple than what the photo shows. I glued tiny crystals on both for a little sparkle.

What a mess I made dragging all my papercrafting stuff out into the dining room today. I'll look forward to someday having my own big creative space. 

I guess I'd better get these in the mail!
