Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Mothers day card.

Happy Friday everyone. I hope you have a good one. If not, then don't worry, there's another one next week,lol.I made my mother's day cards yesterday. I struggled a bit at first but i got there in the end.
The image is by Meljen's and was designed with mother's day in mind. It's quite a wide image and i sized it down a bit but it wasn't until i'd coloured them and started the cards that i realised they were still a bit wide. Instead of doing the logical thing and using a 5"x7" base i insisted on cramming it onto a 6" square. I'm happy (ish ) with the end result though. The circle sentiment is from Netties blog
The image is coloured with promarkers and the papers are from my best of K&CO. pad.
