Happy Mother's Day - cards and painted pitchers!

 I painted these great pitchers for my Mother's Day gifts!  Thanks again to my wonderful painting instructor and friend, Candy, for showing me how to make such beautiful gifts.  I used enamel paints on glass pitchers.  They're pretty tall - I'm guessing they hold the standard 2 quarts???  Anyway, I'm so thrilled with how they turned out.  I had to try to make matching cards to go with them...

The three Mother's Day cards that I made for today.  All the same, except for colors.  Color combinations of the flowers are Strawberry Slush with Cherry Cobbler, Tempting Turquoise with Pacific Point, and Orchid Opulence (retired) with Elegant Eggplant.  The leaves are all Old Olive with Gumball Green.  I love how vibrant they all turned out!

This one was for my mom, since purple is her favorite -

I really happy with them, and we had a great day today.  Cooked out at my sister's house, and the weather was nice.
