Pion Design - Mother's Day Decadence

Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing this Mother's Day card I have created using Pion Design papers from the collections "Days Gone By" and "Summer Falls Into Autumn".  I love mixing and matching the Pion papers to create so many wonderful colour combinations! 

Pion products:

Days Gone By - Beautiful Views PD10001
Days Gone By - Lovely Days PD10003
Days Gone By - Embrace the Magic PD10004
Summer Falls Into Autumn - Plum Garden PD9606

The wood flourish is from Scrapiniec, the mulberry roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and everything else is from my stash. The cameo was a plain diamante crystal that I coloured with my new Copic marker, and the frame was bronze and I painted it white.

This has absolutely been the strangest winter that I can remember. The weather changes faster than I can keep up with for my posts, so I'm just gonna keep sharing winter photos until I see the first bud on the tree outside, or I run out of snowy shots... whichever comes first. lol

Beautiful Chickadee!

 "This was just sitting here on the snow, I'm so suspicious! Sniff sniff. Yep, it's a peanut, yay!"

"Hey, you up there... knock it off with the snow would ya!"

You all know my little buddy Rocky, the gunmetal grey squirrel. He's in trouble and needs all of the good vibes and karma that you can send him. He has a bad infection and I didn't have the proper meds on hand, so I had to order it on line. It hasn't arrived yet and Rocky is running out of time. Please hold on a little longer buddy, I'm coming!

That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. If you have any questions or interesting tidbits about today's wildlife, please let me know.

  11. Such a fun, fabric-laden, creation! Definitely a mother's day style card. Was your mom a seamstress? My mother would have loved this card. My goodness! It's amazing how the geese can be in that water! I suppose the water is warmer than the snow, but still! Yikes! Nature is so incredible. I hear ya about the yo-yoing weather! I think it's great that we can be warm or cool despite the fickleness of it all, but I feel for the wildlife and farmers! Thanks for sharing today. hugs, de

  12. Your creations are always amazing Pamellia, lots of gorgeous detail and my favorite colour too.
    I hope poor little Buddy is going to be ok, he's such a little cutie, well they all are.
    hope meds come in time.

  30. Ohhh hold on Rocky.....Hope he makes it? xxx Sending positive vibes and lots of hugs x Great use of mixing the papers on your amazing project, absolutely stunning. Fabulous photos and you can almost touch the feathers, they are so realistic, wonderful photography x Thanks for sharing x

  31. This card is totally gorgeous hun, awesome colour way too, perfect shabby chic!!!! guess what hun? ...... we got snow today, it's not sticking well only on me when I took Tegan to school and made my nose tickle, but hey it's snow right!!!!! lol hugs Liz xx

  32. I love your blog...and look forward to all your beautiful work and the photos of your wild life friends-

    little friends make me feel better about our World.

  33. Most importantly I'm sending as many vibes to Rocky as possible and love to you for helping him. Your card is just stunning, you have such talent x

  34. What a stunning card and a lovely way to honor Mother!
    Yes,I agree about this strange winter- warm one day,melted snow and the next white out conditions with a foot of snow- crazy i say!
    Sending healing wishes for your little buddyand hopes the meds arrive soon! You are too good Pamellia!
    love to you,Jackie

  35. Decadent, yes! Can I be your Mama?! What a gorgeous card, Pamellia! I love what you've done with the cameo and how you've mingled all those dainty laces with those romantic papers! Just lovely! I bet your Mom is going to cry when she gets this! (good tears!)

    As always, I adore your photos. Great shot of the geese on the lake. How beautiful a scene. I was smiling when I heard you were getting snow again today. I do hope you can get out and enjoy one more snowfall. I noticed the flowering quince are blooming, always the first sign of spring here. It won't be long. Prayers for you and dear Rocky that the stuff he needs arrives soon and works for him. Why do so many squirrels get these infections? I guess as a casual observer, I don't see the sick ones here. You are a wonderful soul to take notice and do something for these little ones. Hugs!

  36. The paper combo is just so lovely as is the entire card Pamellia. Hoping that your little Rocky made it. Thank you for all you do for your furry family. Xj.

  37. Catching up on missed post while on vacation...
    Well, this is one STUNNING card my friend! Love the rich colors and all the shabby layers of gorgeousness!
    Nature pics are awesome too :)

  40. wowiiiiie, this is a stunner! I love the colours and the lace and lush flowers! Truly beautiful!
    We have a crazy winter as well. One week it's freezing cold and you freeze your butt off and then we have plus degrees and you think about going to work with shorts and t-shirs ha ha!
    xx, Ally

  41. Another beautiful card, do you ever run out of ideas Pamellia? You are such an inspiration. This is another 'busy' card, with so much to look at and lots of gorgeous embellishments and fab papers.

    I am loving all of your winter wonderland photographs, although I am going to be rushing through the rest of your posts now looking for news of Rocky, I am so annoyed at myself for getting so behind.
