This must be one of the quickest cards I've ever made . Cake Crumb card base - a section of paper from Graphics45 - ' Kraft Reflections Collection- Forgotten city ' - I cut out two extra leaves , ( the ones with the black dots ) and raised them on sticky pads - added white pen to the other leaves - a thin border top and bottom - peel off sentiment - DONE -
Rhedd and Rosie - challenge 29 - Wood / Trees - Does my branch with leaves qualify .
Well - my branch does not qualify for this challenge - note to self and the rest of you check the challenge brief before you play along.

I'm easily seduced by spotty paper and once again I didn't think about the end result - I really wanted to add a sentiment but I so hate using gold - white wasn't an option and I don't have a cream coloured ink pad - must add it to my shopping list . The flower centers are from a sheet of peel offs..
Feeling Sketchy - sketch 84 - shown above .
Creative Craft Cottage - challenge 18 - Spots or Stripes - I made a card with Stripes last week so here are my Spots .

March 30th is Mothers Day in the UK - making a card for my MIL is always a labour of love . I made 6
cards and then let my husband decide which one he wanted to send. The red ladybug was his favourite .
I used a textured red card which I really like - when I added the white and green coloured pencils it looked like chalk. I tried the image on white but decided the black background looked better.

It seems like an age since I last posted - very busy with kitchen reno at the moment - lots and lots of paint - all the colours have great names - along with the bog standard white I'm using 'Lambs Ear ' which is named after a plant in a very pretty shade of pale green. I will post before and after pics -I'm guessing in about a weeks time - but only if I work really hard .
Handmade Harbour - Mid week party 29 - Spring - birds -rabbits - flowers - I haven't added a sentiment- Birthday - Mothers Day - Thank You - I will decide later.
Creative Craft Cottage - challenge 18 - Spots or Stripes - I love the colour of this paper -packs a punch when a little black is added.
I wasn't very happy with my CAS card ( top pic ) -a bit too CAS so I added a few gems - much better.
