Mother's Day Combo Card

Oh good morning everyone 
 Well I was up with the birds this morning and said hello briefly to some glorious sun shine.  Oh doesn't the sun make your heart smile.... it is a change from the snow that keeps on visiting us.

So after speeding around the house like a complete an utter lunatic this morning, tidying here, there and every where.  Working my way around the house catching up on the household chores room, by room.  I crept back up the spiral staircase, to the Beach Hut, where I closed the door so as not to wake Matt and started on a Mother's Day card, this was after I had checked out the lovely challenge posts, my mind was in a great place for starting.

Using a fantastic sketch from Whiff of Joy Challenge 68 by the very talented Bev Rochester along with one of my new city girl stamps "Willow with Champagne" 

 
and the colour scheme from The Play Date Challenge 18 of Black, White and Teal my little creation
(with this great image inspiration)


met the challenges for



So here is the card

Papers and Martha Stewart Doily Punch (Hobby House) Pearls from (Running with Scissors), sentiment is MSE  (very large stash, through eBay, yes you can find lots of MSE sentiments on there, direct from MSE).  The ribbon and bows are from Tilly's.

A close up the floral embellishments
The flowers come from several places.... Hobby Craft, Trotters, Boys and the leaves from Running with scissors.  Links or details of shops can be found here.

A close up of the image which had been coloured with copics 

  Well off to pop some more washing in and decide what we will actually eat today (almost forgot that bit)

Happy Crafting to you all, and a very enjoyable weekend

Hugs Kate xx
