Saturday Raspberry (very sedate) Crazinesss

The Saturday brought another 'Sketch Saturday' and allowed me to combine it with the Dawn's Raspberry Suite Challenge. I loved making this card and I think my taste and style is already maturing and I am learning to keep the card simpler, but still have an impact.
In the photograph the 'celery/moss' color have not come out as it actually is, but it is still good card.
Guys do leave comments and tell me what do you think of it, how else it could be improved.
So enjoy and keep crafting.

The Monday Family Affair

Everyday is a family affair, and today especially, because I have 2 cards for my parents. This card for Mojo Monday and Cute Card Thursday is actually for my dear sweet mother. I miss her most of all, she is more of a friend than a mother, even though she can be a tyrant when she wants, but a surprisingly wise tyrant. So people I miss my friend most of all.

It's Sunday, sunny sunday, relaxed and bright. I feel like going out and buying loads of flowers for my garden, which is mostly weeds right now. I have a long way to go before I reach the flowers stage, so good luck to me. Still a long way to go.

Card Thursday

Don't you love Basic Grey. No, don't answer that, there are few crazies like me. Their 'ambrosia' collection is dusky, dark and mysterious enough for this card i wanted to make for my father.

The colors are masculine enough, and i used beige and chocolate card stock to set off the citrus effect. I also used a paislee painted dark chocolate, American crafts ribbons and another wide organza chocolate colored ribbon. For my piercing, a little heart in beige.
This card meets two challenges, Cute Card Thursday #53 (family affair) and Twisted Thursday #4 (sketch & piercing), .............. wicked! :)

I'm missing my parents more and more, nowadays, even though me and my father, hardly used to talk, i still miss being around him. So coming up is another card, this one for my mother.
