Happy Mothers Day

Morning Peeps and Happy Mothers Day, I hope you all have a super day and get spoilt, spoilt, spoilt.

This is the card I made for my Mummy, inspired by some rather lovely little numbers I made with Jelly last week. It's something a little different for me, the stamp set is in bits so you can build up the scene how and where you want it. I used Blender Pens for the first time. I've had some for, ahem, a while and never played with them, but luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurve them now!

I put the butterfly in specially for Mummy, everything she is making this year includes a butterfly on it somewhere, so I thought it would be fitting.

I'm loving trying out a different style for me at the moment, but it does make me feel a little unsure of myself. Back tomorrow with something a little more 'usual' for me.

Just a quickie from me today, the battery on my pooter is about to go..................

Annika said...

Oh hai, I am baaa-aack... :)
I've always thought those "build your image from bits" sets are cool - if you're any good at stamping, that is. Which I'm not.
Never got a proper hang of the blender pens either.
Boy I sound useless, lol

Gorgeous card for your dear Mom! I really like the starkness of the white with the hues added giving it that lovely spring like face. Fantastic as usual Fluff, dear!

It's so pretty, oh so pretty, it's so pretty and .... (can't remember the rest of the words!).

Loving the effect of the blender pens - I still haven't used my aqua markers yet!

Happy belated Mothers Day - glad that sweet cheeks enjoyed making your breakfast as much as you enjoyed eating what was left ;-)
