Mother's Day card

Good Morning!
Just a quick card this morning and it's one I made for my Mum for today.
It turned out  a little more detailed than I intended (mum likes plain and simple)
but I think it'll be ok :)

Card Supplies
DP - My Mind's Eye 'Dilly Dally' paper pad
Paper pieced image from Digistamp boutique
Font for sentiment - 'the little black dress' a freebie from Sweet Shoppe Designs
Machine stitching
Paper piercing
Butterflies - Martha Stewart punch and a hand drawn butterfly trail
Baker's twine and clear adhesive gems
Thank you for visiting today, I still have to upload my scrapbook pages but just haven't had time.
I will soon though!
I hope you all have a lovely day.

March scrap map - tiger teeth!

Good morning!
Can you believe it's the beginning of March already?
That means a new monthly challenge at Creative Craft World and we have
a brand new sketch for you to have a go at making a scrap page or card.
We're also having another blog hop so if you'd like to join in, just visit each of the DT and leave a comment to say you've visited and you'll be entered into a draw for a prize.
You don't have to enter the challenge to be eligible but if you do link up your project to the challenge
you have the chance to win a fab scrap kit and a guest design spot.
All the details are HERE.
Here's my take on the sketch
I used MME 'Alphabet Soup Boy' papers and I was delighted that the colours of Phoebe's jumper matched them - stripes and all!
Phoebe was always asking to have her face painted and on this particular day Lydia took great delight in painting her as a tiger.  I think she did a great job!
The metal gromlet is from WRMK and the tiny buttons are Fancy Pants.
As I had my sewing machine out for another project (and any excuse to sew ;)) I stitched a short zig zag line on 2 sides of the frame.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the sketch
and to continue on with the blog hop you'll find Sarah W's page HERE.
Thank you for visiting today
and I'll be round to visit you all later :)
The children are going swimming with their grandparents so I'll have a couple of hours peace :)
Have a lovely weekend.
Take care,
Sarah xx
