Happy Mothers Day everyone!

And if you are not a mother, I hope you have a wonderful day with your mothers, grandmothers and family.

If you have time to be crafty today (and I hope you do) how about entering our challenge (the link is on the sidebar). We would love to have you join us :)

And speaking of our challenge, Joy has made another fabulous card to help inspire you. Isn't this just so soft and pretty? The background is actually
Hero Arts Designer Papers; these are gorgeous if you have not used them yet. The image and sentiment are both from Hero Arts 'Just Saying Hi' set.



Ange has made an amazing birthday card - looks so great with all the different sentiments. Can you believe it's all from one set! -
Practicing Creativity's 'Another Year'. This would look gorgeous in a variety of different colours.


My experimenting continues and I tried water colouring today with distress inks on water colour paper. I do find colouring so difficult and I am not sure why. All the stamps used on this card are from Hero Arts. The background was stamped with Envelope Pattern, the sentiment is from Find Joy and the flower is Hand Drawn Flower. The border punch is from Martha Stewart.


I am off to enjoy the rest of the day with my family... I have already had pancakes for breakfast, I wonder what is next?
