Mother's Day

My card today is for my lovely mum on Mother's Day.  She is still in hospital, going through a bit of a rough time with the chest infection but always has a smile for us when we visit.  I am hoping she will be home for the weekend.

I have used this fab Lili of the Valley image Teddy with 'mum' balloons and coloured with Promarkers.  I have followed the sketch on Friday Sketchers Blog.


 Mum loves bees and butterflies so I have added a couple of SeeD bees.  The sentiment is Paula Pascual.  The papers were a freebie in a magazine from My Minds Eye.  Punched flowers and Lace Doily border punch. Gems and corner peel off from stash.  I have also spritzed the sentiment and flowers with shimmer mist but don't think you can see it on the photo.

I am adding this card to the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Mother's Day
Craft Your Days Away - For Mum
Stampin' For the Weekend - For Mum
Passion for Promarkers - Bugs
Top Tip Tuesday - Nature
I love Promarkers - Dotty
Lili of the Valley Challenge - Punch it
Colour Create - Pastels
