Oh am sure my mum wont mind...

... me blogging about her age on her upcoming birthday!!! Not long until my mums birthday so thought I had better get cracking with her card. Well, dont know if you spotted the link at the side to Wee Stamps which is a new digi image site and I was lucky enough to get a freebie -it was such a cutie and thought my mum would love it. I've made it totally girly, but I love it and hope mum will too - see what you think:

Papers were a freebie from a recent magazine that I have distressed the edges (and the card and the image - oops think gone a bit distressing mad!). The numbers were from hobbycraft and flowers from my stash (I think from the Hobbycraft sale - wish I had gotten more now - doh!)

The image has been coloured with promarkers and paper pieced her dress. I have also added stickles to the flowers and glossy accented the ladybug. (sorry for the dark pic - with the flash on it was to bright - iykwim)

I would like to enter this into:

Digi Doodle
- spots & dots.
DYSU - Anything goes.
Paper Romance - anything goes.
Samuel Taylor - use promarkers or copics.
Totally Papercrafts - paper piecing.

Thanks for looking xx
