Mothers Day

I have not been crafting properly for a little while now as I have lost my mojo. But saying that when I have got to do a birthday card or something I always manage to to muster up some energy. So as yesterday was Mothers day I got up very early and made one for my mum and one for Hubby's. Today I will show you the one I made for my mum. I am also entering it into
Creative Inspirations #56/ Mothers day/ Mum
FabnFunky Challenge #66 Shabby Chic

As I am the middle child of three girls I thought of using my gorgeous girl stamps to create that special card for my mum. I coloured them with my Promarkers.. cut them out and assembled them on another piece of card that I had distressed with Spun Sugar ink. I also used the same ink around the patterned paper and glittered. The sentiment is one of Lynnes digis from Sentiments 4 You.
I managed to get this and another card done just before delivering them so it didn't take too long to make. Mum loves it when I make her cards and I saw a tear in her eye as she read the words inside that I had made up from my Versa printer CD. 
 I hope you like and get a little inspiration yourself.
