Mum

An all-purpose card for Mum.  I think this can be used for other occasions than Mother's Day!


I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
The Outlawz Wednesday Challenge - Sketch
http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/wednesday-sketch/forum/topics/wednesday-sketch-challenge-august-24

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Rosie's Studio.  The image is from Sheepski Designs and has been coloured with copic markers.  I also die-cut a banner and added some flower pieces and pearls from Rosie's Studio.

Purple Delight

Today has seen a return of the sun after a week of rain.  I am hoping the sun is around for a few more days so I can get out and enjoy the fresh air a bit!  It is meant to be spring in 2 days time so maybe we will see some more of the sun!  It's nice to see the spring flowers starting to appear in the gardens around where I live.

Here is a card I created while the weather was still not the best!
