Happy Mother's Day everyone!
Hope you're all having a wonderful time, whether you're spoiling your Mums or being spoilt as a Mum...... or both!! I had a cuppa and some toast in bed this morning and was spoilt by my two kiddies with earrings, perfume and toiletries...... plus two handmade cards!! My Mum has just called round and now I'm off with the kids to have lunch with my M-I-L....... I'm lucky enough to have a really nice one, lol!
My card today is for the Colour Create challenge
and I have to say I enjoyed this one soooooooo much. Our lovely Sarita
came up with the colours and also the extra option of not using any design papers - you have me well and truly hooked on this now Sarita! You can get so creative when you have to think outside the box and not rely on using papers - check out the scrummy creations the DT have come up with....... all I can think of to say is 'Wow'!
I decided to use my Tapestry Peg stamps again, having just treated myself to some new ones. They really are a pleasure to use and I've found a brilliant blog, jam packed with oodles of ideas and inspiration here
. I really am pleased with the way this card turned out, probably because the new Tildas are just too cute not to adore. These are my faves by far........ but I'll probably be saying that again when the next lot come out, lol! I must also thank Sharon
for the lovely coloured wire she sent me as part of a birthday goodie bag, how perfect does that look as Tilda's little antenae?!
