Flowers For Mum from the Design Team at the Secret Crafter

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today brings the new challenge at the

It was my turn to choose the theme for this week, and with Mother's Day not too far away, I thought that this would give us all the opportunity to think of our mum's and create something extra special for them.  I remember my Mum every year whilst I have the opportunity to create for my other very special mum, Matt's mum.  My mum sadly passed away a very long time ago now, but I am sure she would love my creations and know she is watching me and with me always.

So the theme this week is

Flowers For Mum

This is what I created for my design team inspiration.  My mum loved listening to the birds, gardening and was a total sun worshipper.
The base colour and contrast is a turquoise blue card, the top papers are from a new stack from the Hobby House by Prima.  The image plate is surrounded by a Marianne die with pearls from the Hobby House.  The image is Mollie Gardening and is a digi available from the Secret Crafter shop only.  The image plate is distressed with Tim Holtz tattered rose and over stamped with swirls in the same colour as is the sentiment plate.  The sentiment is from stash sorry not sure who by and the sentiment is mounted on a nestie fancy tag.  The ribbon is from stash and the flowers are from Hobby Craft and Wild Orchid.  The image is coloured with copics and a white gel highlighter.

I am entering this creation the following challenges
The Stampman - mother's day floral
Digi Doodle - Pearls
Southern Girls - Flowers

I would like to say thank you to all my wonderful visitors especially those that leave me such inspiring comments

Hugs and enjoy your day tomorrow
