Card For Mum

Hello everyone. Hope you are all well. I am enjoying a wee bit peace and quiet just now...they are all at school and nursery and it is bliss, lol. I should be doing some hoovering but...,it'll still be there later, lol.
This card is the one that I gave to my mum for Mother's Day. Sorry for the poor picture but it was the best I could get.

The image is one that was sent to me a long time ago in a RAK and I have coloured it with watercolour pencils and Twinkling H2Os. I used the Forever Friends Pink Parfait paper pack again and also the MS Lace Doily border punch. The sentiment is handwritten, flower done with retro flower punch and candy from Craftwork Cards added to the centre of the flower and also the bottom left of the card. I have added a swirl which was cut on the Bug with a Bug die. I have also used Kandi's Professional Touch Rhinestone Applicator which I bought for Kim at the craft fair last year and she has hardly used!

I hope all the mothers out there had a fantastic day yesterday and got lots of new goodies. I know I did! I was spoilt rotten and it was lovely, lol. Wee Steven got me some lovely flowers and heart shaped ribbon sliders from Wild Orchid Crafts and also a new Gillian Roberts stamp, 'Baking a Treat'. From Kim I got the MS Heart Border punch I wanted and another Stampavie stamp...a Tina Wenke one this time - 'Mouse in Nutboat'. And, from Jack, a Penny Black Slapstick one I was after - 'Hedgehog Birthday' and he also got me the dinner tray that I wanted. As I said ...spoilt rotten! Thank you very much, Kids - I love it all. I have even spent some of this afternoon adding rhinestones to the ribbon sliders I got - they look quite good.

I can enter this into the following challenges:

1. The Sweet Stop Sketches - fantastic sketch
2. Cute Card Thursday - Celebrations
3. Crafty Cardmakers - Feminine Celebration
Thanks very much for taking the time to look and please leave me a comment if you have the time...I really love to read what you have to say and it means I can also return the visit.
