QFTD59-Faith aka Markie's Mom

Today's Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers is Faith aka Markie's Mom and owner of Mark's Finest
Papers. Who doesn't love her cards? I am on the Stampin' B's Design team with her...where does she get all her energy? If you know her, you know she is involved in so many things involving stamping.  I needed to do something fast today so I chose this pretty CAS card of Faith's, plus it is great for a sympathy.

I kept her layout and used a different image from MFP's than Faith. She used a plaid embossing folder and I used a plaid edge punch. I just made a small sentiment tools involved, and sponged the edges.

No time to do any other challenges today, boo hoo. It's a very busy day for me. Thanks for stopping by..see ya soon and have a great weekend!

Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers, Our Family Tree
Paper: PTI white cs
Ink: Memento Bamboo Leaves, Rich Cocoa, and Desert Sand
Accessories: Flower, leaf, and brad from MFP's Grandma's Hope Chest Premium Paper Craft Pack, EK Success plaid edge punch

Faith's work is amazing - oh how I wish I had but one of her creative genes LOL! Lovely case of her card. Love all the white space and the lovely tree image. Great CAS card :)

The card you used for inspiration might be the only C&S card I've ever seen Faith create!!! LOL You did a fabulous job with yours using that awesome border punch and those lovely tree images. I've noted 3 cards from her gallery that I'd like to CASE, but it might take me until Monday to get one made! There are a few card designers that completely intimidate me and Faith is one of them :) Her cards are all so gorgeous and so out of the realm of my creativity! LOL I'll try though, so wish me luck with this one :)
Have a super weekend and a fabulous Mother's day my friend!

Simply gorgeous! Love those trees!

Unfortunately, Michael's team lost yesterday so his soccer playing days are over. It was a heart wrenching evening. My eyes were not dry.

Happy Mother's Day to you!
