Mother's Day 2019

Mother's day this year in the UK falls on 31st March so I have been busy making lots of cards for Dotty's Teahouse where I sell my cards in Carshalton High Street, Surrey.

Recently I have been spotting some lovely flowers in bloom and took these photos on my walk down to Dotty's

and my hellebore at home continues to show off it's glorious blooms

I always think that flowers are a good subject for Mother's day cards so here is one of my first.
The background was make using a paint resist technique and Tim Holz stamps. I then added distress inks over the top. The die cuts are a mix of Tim Holtz  Spellbinders and Memory box. The sentiment is by Clearly Besotted.

I would like to enter my cards into the following challenges;

The butterfly challenge A is for mine is anything goes
Through the craft room door anything goes
The artistic stamper 3/3 heart it
Frilly and Funkie 2/3 let me count the ways I have used 3 die cut hearts on my card
Crafty sentiments 1/3 spring is springing
We love to create 2/3 anything goes mixed media

Thanks for stopping by and for your very kind and supportive comments you take the time to leave me. Enjoy this gorgeous weather and if you need some sunshine I am blowing it your way. 

Back soon,

Bye for now,
