One down, one to go!!

Hello folks from a rather dismal day on the south coast.  I hope you are having better weather where you are.  Just popped on to show you the first of my mother's day cards and I must say I'm a little ahead of myself as I normally leave things to the last minute and end up making them the night before.   

Anyway, I've used a stamp which I finally managed to get hold of I have been wanting this one for a while.  She has been coloured mainly with prismacolor pencils apart from the skin and hair for which I used copics.  I tried a different style of card which I love and was so easy and I got the details from over on Norma's blog HERE.  She has an amazing blog with so much inspiration with templates and tutorials so if you're ever stuck for ideas its a real treasure trove! 


A bit of a side view up next.  Apologies if the photos seem a little dark as I said its a pretty dismal day with not much light about.  Didnt use much stash for this one its really quite clean and simple for me.  Papers used were I think Papermania V & A 'Hanoverian' with lots of muted colours and flowery prints.  A couple of flowers from WOC and couple of pearls and thats it.


I would like to enter into a few challenges:-






Okay I'm off now to do homework duty with my eldest.  My most least favourite thing about school its a real struggle with him to get him to do it, so wish me luck!

Take care and happy crafting.
