I've finally made a start on my Mothers day cards and combined 5 challenges in one card. Firstly, I followed the fab sketch from the Sunday Sketch Challenge 23 at Crafts 4 Eternity. The challenge at The Pink Elephant 6 is to use buttons, and at Stamp Something you need to use the colour green as the main part of the project. At Lili of the Valley, the challenge is to make a Mothers day card and last but not least March's challenge on the Stamp Mad forum on Craftbubble is to make a card using stitching (real or faux) and buttons. Image - stamp from the Daisy and Dandelion range, Bubbles and Squeak DPs - HOTP and K & Co. Ribbon and buttons - HOTP Red cardstock Prima flower I distressed all layers with my little Heidi Grace distressing tool and used brown inks to stipple and run round the edges. Stitching and sentiment written with a Whispers brown pen. Image coloured with pro-markers.
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
