Happy Mother’s Day

It’s Mothers Day in Australia this Sunday 8th May and I made this for my Mum (she’s in her 80’s). I fussed over this card for hours and now I’m very happy with the result. I like how this embossing folder changed the affect on the polka dot paper and I have been inspired by http://michellezindorf.stampinup.net (for those who don’t know about her she is so talented and in my circle we call her The Brayer Queen. I signed up for her email internet tutorials and this has inspired me to make more of my inks and expand on my stamping style but I don’t have a brayer yet so I used my sponging Blocks and ink to make up my background to suit the cardstock that I wanted to use… I just love getting inky fingers! Daisy’s remind my Mum of my Dad (he loved to grow daisy’s in their garden) so this was the perfect image for her especially because Mum is such a huge fan of pink (and so am I). I enjoyed decorating the inside of the card to compliment the main image and can you tell that I’m into butterfly’s at the moment and very partial to glitter.
