For Mum

Hello, I've made this card for my Grandson's to give to their Mum for Mothers Day. They helped me design it, they chose the papers, colours and the image. I just advised them on a few extras that could be added. I think their Mum will love it.

They chose Tilda and the colour of her dress from my ProMarkers, I know it's not the right shade of pink but who am I to argue with two 6yr old boys. I showed them my Nestie's , MS punches, spellbinder flowers and they chose what they wanted. They haven't seen the finished card yet. They are coming for Dinner on Thursday I will hopefully get their approval then. I added the balloon and glittered it with stickles and used metallic green thread for the string.

That's me for today, I now need to start my 4 Dt cards for the coming weeks challenges. So I see you all later. Do have a lovely evening.

Hugs Suzi xx
