For a mum

Hi crafty friends, I hope you've been alright. Ready for Easter?? I would say I am, but not in the terms of having certain things prepared... we're having a very laid-back Easter this year, so I might just cook up a little yummy something for Sunday to share with the family, but that's about it! Oh, plus stock up on chocolate eggs for an Easter egg hunt. Should be fun to see how Zuzia's searching skills improved over the year ;)

I'm popping in with a card fresh out of the oven, a product of the crafty evening that possibly is not yet over... *grin*


I coloured the image from Flourishes' Love Sweet Love stamp set with Copics: C12/V06/V09 for the lilacs, RV32/RV34 for the tulips, G82/G94 green parts, and E30/E31/E33 for the basket, and die cut with Spellbinders™ S4-112 Classic Ovals SM (added the frame from S5-071 Twisted Metal Tags & Accents underneath, for extra interest).

The sentiment is from Spring Bouquets, also from Flourishes, stamped on a banner from S4-324 Ribbon Banners. I also added a hand-made flower, created with S5-103 Bauble Blossom One.

Everything was distressed with my trusty Pumice Stone Distress Ink. The rhinestones are from Glitz Design (big one) and Kaisercraft (small ones).

I had a couple of challenges in mind when making this one, including the Motherly Love challenge at Flourishes blog, the first fabulous challenge at the Crafty Friends Challenge blog - Vintage,

...Card Patterns sketch 159, and TSTR108 - Homegrown Flowers.

Join me again tomorrow, for the Waltzingmouse Sketch and card! Thanks for coming, and for all your lovely comments :)
