Mother's Day

Hi all,

well I realise it has been a long time since I have been on here but with everything going on in my life over the last year something had to give and that was blogging.  I have though been busy with personal requests but found it a struggle to get the inspiration or inclanation to just craft for fun.  Well I am pleased to say that I have started to get itchy feet again and have made an Easel card for my Mum for Mother's Day (I can't believe I have actually bought cards recently as I couldn't be bothered to make them lol) using some fabulous free papers that I found over at Lena Scraps.  Aren't they just gorgeous, the beautiful bow was also a freebie.

Papers - Lena Scraps Freebie
Die Cuts - Spellbinders & Magnolia
Sentiments - Pink Petticoat "Lovely Mum Sentiments"
Embellishments - Wild Orchid Crafts

I am going to enter this into the following challenges.

Delightful Sketches - Someone Special
Little Miss Muffett - Easel, Shaped or Step cards
Moving along with the Times - Special Lady
For your Inspiration - Photo
Hotshot Crafts - Ribbon

I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
