Celebrate Mom with Sparkles

Hi everyone

I hope you're enjoying the sunshine. I've just spent an hour in the garden getting rid of some weeds. I know I'm gonna regret it as I can feel my body seizing up as I type but I can't let Fibromyalgia win. The garden's been neglected for too long. Just need to do it a little bit at a time. Anyhow...

There's a new challenge starting today at 

Our theme for this month is
'Celebrate Mom or a Special lady'

I've saved one of the Mother's day cards I made earlier in the year. This one was for my late first husband's mum...

I used some Forever Friends papers for both the image and the backing, adding a doily, some ribbon, silver pearls, ribbon and a couple of flowers. The large flower has been made with a Cheery Lynn die and the small one has been punched. I've finished off with a stamped sentiment on a Spellbinder Petite Labels One die cut. I've used black card to mat using 1/16" perfect layers ruler.

I hope you'll pop over to the challenge and leave some love for my talented team mates. If you join us you could be in with a chance to win a fab prize from Marianne Design.

Thanks for visiting. I hope I'll see you again soon.
Hugs Helen xx
