Creative Inspirations #56 Mothers Day/Mum/Mom

Good Morning my Lovelies,  Well!! the garden is tidy and all my bedding plants are in the ground but oh my goodness to what cost.  I don't know which part of my body doesn't ache!! lol, that will teach me to go at it hammer and tongs.

Anyhoo, It's Sunday and here in the UK it's Mothering Sunday next week so for our bi-weekly challenge over at Creative Inspirations we are asking you for a Mothers Day card/gift/project.

I've never made a clean and simple card before!!!  and even with this one I'm not sure it's as CAS as it should be, still had to add Lace, ribbon, Tulle and a pretty brad. 

This card will sit on my side table along with a sweet bunch of Tulips for my Mum who sadly I lost 46 years ago. It's just my way of trying to remember the short time we had together.

I used a beautiful digital image that I received from the lovely Eiglas a long time ago. You can see all Ei's lovely creations here, including some of her amazing papers too.  I printed it off twice and coloured it with pro markers, lay the first one down on the card and cut out the second which has been heat embossed twice with clear powder and then placed on top to give it that raised effect. Sadly the camera didn't pick up the shiny glossy effect.   I used my score board to go around the outside of the card and added the few bits and pieces to it.  I'm sure my Mum would have loved it as Tulips were her fav flowers.

Our Sponsor this week is the wonderful Joanna Sheen and she is giving one lucky winner a £10,00 gift voucher to spend in store.

That's all from me for now, I'll be back later when I finish off my next project. See you all later.
