Oh my word what a beautiful day it is here today! I hope you too are enjoying a gorgeous day to wake up to.
Today is Mothering Sunday in this land of mine and I would like to wish all Mothers and everyone who cares for children a very happy Mothers day! You are all totally incredible! I would like to say a special thank you to my amazing daughter for giving me another beautiful grandchild last year. For making me so proud of the most wonderful, kind, unselfish and nurturing Mother to her beautiful babies and for including me in their lives everyday. I am so blessed happy Mothers day my darling Claire.
This is the card I have made for her. I have used this sweet SCACD image by Elisabeth Bell. You can be purchase her at Quixotic Paperie. I have coloured my image with ranger distress ink pads. I have used some of the new colours I bought the other day and they are just so gorgeous I love them. The stickle glue I have used is Star Dust. I have distressed everything with frayed burlap. I have tried a different technique too. The awesomely talented Inge gave a tip on her blog on how to highlight your image. She shades around her image with coloured chalk. So I had a go and used blue chalk. It gives a very soft effect so thank you so much for sharing that Inge.
The flowers were a present from my sweet gorgeous friend Tab. I have sprayed them with iridescent gold glimmer mist and distressed the edges with frayed burlap.
Thank you so much for looking and I wish you all a wonderful day!
