DLP Name PAC and a Mother's Day Card

Hope you all have had a great week! I know last weekend was Mother's Day but I couldn't share this until after it had been given. ;)

This is the outside of the card I made for my Mom. I created an envelope out of a gelli print. I used the paper clip to hold the flap closed and decorated it with some ribbon and tulle.  I spent an evening earlier in the week just doing some watercolor flower "doodling" while watching TV. One of them was perfect for the envelope so I cut it out and glued it on.

Here it is with the flap opened. You can see the tag inside.

And here is the painted tag itself. We wrote our sentiments  and signed it on the back. I added another watercolor flower, wrote the words, and added the little flowers down the left hand side and some doodles and scribbles - and ribbon.

It was fun to make and I think Mom loved it.

Over at Documented Life Project this week the PAC challenge was "include your name in an unusual way." So here is my version:

I doodled my name on graph paper, colored it in with various gel pens and markers. Then glued it to a painted background.

So what have you been up to creatively this week?
