Oh lordy, I cant believe how long its been, seriously lost my blogging mojo - even commenting on other blogs has fallen by the wayside and for that I apologise but I do still have a nosy. It seems though I'm not the only one who feel this way.
Anyhoo, I hope you all had a fab Christmas & New Year - if you can remember its seems so long ago. I didnt really get anything crafty this year - just a couple of dies - that I 'desperately' needed - however, they are still in their packets - lol, they will get used at some point - honest - lol, just dont tell hubby!!
Even though I've been quiet on here my crafty mojo has made a re-appearance and I've been making cards like a good'un - my son is 16 in April (omg!! that cant be right!!!) and I've got his cards made, early, incase mr mojo decides to go walkabout again! and a couple of others which I'll blog about soon.
Talk about being prepared - I've got one of my mothers cards done, which is the one I'm going to blog now - the next mothers day card is going to be exactly the same as this one.
The image is from Mo's digital pencil, she recently had a new year discount code, so I took advantage of that - I've loved this image for ages and often thought it would be ideal for my gardening mum and mum-in-law!!
I printed off the image and then masked an image on top of it whilst I stencilled the distress ink circle around the image - which I have then coloured with promarkers and added the sentiment from word. I have kept it c&s by matting onto pink card and then just adding some gems from my stash to the corner. I am really pleased with how this turned out (I wont admit it was my third attempt though - due to botching of the stencilling - lol!!)
I would like to enter this into:
Passion for Promarkers - C&S
I love promarkers - Anything goes
As you like it - One layer or lots of layer (one layer) - its the first time I've attempted this and really like how it has turned out - I will definately be doing more like this.
Mo's DP2 challenge - anything goes.
Hopefully it wont be so long until my next post, thanks for looking.
