We have bought 2 new cheap folding chairs so that we can enjoy lunch and cups of tea in the garden
All this warm sunshine inspired me to do some spring cleaning...of my garden studio
It felt so good to dust, clean and hoover everywhere. I can't wait to get back to my outdoor creative space.
Sunday was also Mother's day here in the UK and I received the most gorgeous card presents from my girlie....a photo album of Daisy from birth to now. Yes I did blub...;0) I also had a beautiful bouquet of flowers .We were invited down for the day my my SIL as a surprise and my girlie was said she was thrilled to share her first Mother's Day with her own Mum. My boy was skiing and sent me a video of him doing a frightening jump...honestly a card would have been far less scary.
I thought it apt to share the card I made for my own dear Mum.
I used one of Ignacio's digi images available here. This is a lovely sheet with several Jessie Wilcox vintage illustrations. I hand made some embossed backgrounds to which I added some distress inks and rubbed on some metallic gilding wax.
I made several of these embossed backgrounds. I have plans for them all. The one I used for my Mum is the 2nd from the right. I also matted the pieces using gold mirror card.
I also several CL die cuts
The sentiment is Lili of the Valley from their grunge set which I have coloured with Distress inks
