Dream Valley Challenge #3 - Mother's Day!

Hiya - again! This is my second post today (those from the Brum area will be comparing me to the number 11 bus!) and it's time for Dream Valley Challenge #3 - Mother's Day!

I made this card and tag set using the Gift Giving Tween digi from Digi's with Attitude.

I really struggled getting decent photos - hope you can see the details ok....

A close up....

And the tag.....

I used:
Sentiment - Computer generated
Paper - Wild Rose Studio
Promarkers, glitter glue
Papermania Victorian Fleur embossing folder
Sizzix architural corner die
Pearls, ribbon and thread from my stash

Sarah Hurley - Embossing
PaperPlay - Embossing

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and can pop over to Dream Valley and join us. I can't believe all the gorgeous entries we're having!!!! You must have a look at our top 3 from challenge 2 - beautiful!

I've got my fingers crossed for some more nice weather because I've seriously got to get digging on my allotment - it's going to take a lot of hard work before I can get anything other than weeds growing on it! Wish me luck!

Love 'n' hugs,
