Mother's Day


Here's the card I made for my Mother-in-Law Joy (unfortunately I lost my Mum 25 years ago so it's a difficult time of the year for me). I used these gorgeous Easter papers from Designer Digitals again & paper pieced the birdies which are this weeks free image from Delightful Inspiration. The card is finished off with butterflies (Martha Stewart punch again), flowers, brad & gems.

I'm entering this card for 6 challenges:
ABC - Paper Piecing
By the Cute & Girly - Spring is in the Air
Crafty Calendar -Flower Power
Lily-Boo Too - Mother's Day
Inspirational- Sketch
Cute Daisy May - Mother's Day

Beautiful card. Mother's Day in England must come before MD here in the US. Either that or you are one very prepared lady, lol.

Hey, sis, you nailed it. Awesome card. Wasn't it great paper piecing rather than coloring the digi? sometimes, I just don't want to color, KWIM?
