Purple flowers for Father's Day?

I made this card for my husband and I'm not sure when to give it to him. We like to go wine tasting together which is what inspired me, but somehow purple flowers might be better for our anniversary  and something a bit more manly for Father's Day.

The papers and stamps are from Heartfelt Creations and the flowers, leaves, and scene are all colored with copics.

Thanks for looking!

Mother's Day

My kids are not twins, they are 2 years apart, and I am not very tall, but somehow as we hit mother's day this year, all 3 of us are the same size. We planned this photo for mother's day with a yardstick across our heads. By the next major holiday, I will be the shortest one in the family.

I recently discovered a cool online store and blog called MarkerPop. They have challenges that require you to use copics, which is a breeze for me because I use my stamps and copics on almost every project I create. The current challenge (which you find here)  is for Mother's day, but I had already mailed my mother's day cards when I saw the challenge, so I created this layout for the challenge. I used my copics to color all the red and orange flowers and the word "Mom." I used this sketch from Stuck?!
