Dear Muse...

Oh the muse!!!...  Or if you want to call it "inspiration"!  She can be your friend and support you when you need it... but sometimes she can be the enemy... LOL

I planned to make some Mother's Day cards during this week...  a little bit of time here... a little bit there... during nights... etc...  And I already had in my mind some designs... with lots of layers, distressing, ink... paint!!! yeah!

But you know... Muse is Muse... She controls me.

She guided me to the CAS style and I couldn't resist.


I have some beautiful girls from a Unity set called Time for friends and wine.  So I dressed them up...



I used clean and simple style to stand them out.

Some were dressed with patterned paper piecing...




Others combined with a little bit of watercolor pencils...





Other with cardstock and glitter pens...





... and even with some color in the face... 


I really enjoyed making them...  I combined Unity stamps with Latina Crafter and Inkadinkado stamps, washi tapes, paper and cardstock...



These are my friends for Friday...  that's what the muse brought to me this week...

Don't forget to leave a comment... I'll link this post to Friday's Friends with Flair at Unity... that by the way is celebrating 5 years anniversary and is having great offers and new releases... I want them all... (I know I can't have them all... but still want them... LOL).

I also made some other CAS cards with a hole in them... come back tomorrow to see them.

These girls look great on your designs. I like the CAS style you chose for them. And the patterns dress them up nicely, I think. :)

We ARE at the mercy of our Muse sometimes aren't we? Kind of like toddlers, not much regard for what your plans are! However, I would say yours knew what she was doing -- these cards are simply adorable! And I LOVE that they are not your "typical" Mother's day card!!
