Hullo, Hullo,
Hopefully we are in for a beautiful day it's certainly warm out there in this neck of the woods and slightly windy so good for the washing!!!
I have been up bright and early was in the hairdressers at 8am just for a trim but as I've had my hair done I feel the need to go out tonight lol!!
Anyway here is my card that I have made for the kids to give to my mum on mothers day, i have used last weeks sketch for Friday Sketchers but unfortunately didn't make it in time to participate in the challenge.
However I did take a look yesterday but they did say they were closing the blog??? hmmmmm April fool me thinks!!
I have used retired SU papers love these, as you can see I have paper pieced the little elzybells hat and dress to match and added some punched flowers and finished off with some red embellishments.
I am entering the following challenges
Allsorts challenge - bloomin blossoms
One stop craft - spots and dots
Craft us Crazy - Spring

  10. Hi Sue
    love your card, colours are yummy, love those papers, love the way that you have paper pieced the dress & hat.
    Apparently it is NOT an April fool joke (regarding the Friday Sketcher's) blog, (such a shame).
    Hope you've had a lovely Mummy's day, & been spoilt rotten. I'm just slapping the war paint on (trying to hide SOME of my lines) as I am being taken out tonight to my favourite restaurant by two of my lovely kids, love it when I don't have to cook, so I'll be a HAPPY Mummy
