Dream Valley Challenge 27 - Mother's Day


It's time for another challenge from Dream Valley.  This time we would like to see what you are making for Mother's Day.

I've used my lovely new stamp Teddy for Mum from LOTV that I bought with the voucher I got for Christmas from  the beautiful and talented Clare. Thank you very much, Chicken! You'll be able to see the other goodies I bought in the near future....

I still haven't quite got over my recent paper piecing bug so here's some more :-) I coloured the shine on the balloons with a white gel pen. And then I had some fun with a make-up sponge and some ink to do the sky....

The sentiment is another from Sentiments 4 You....

I also used:
Papers - Papermania Henbury Lane
Recycled cake ribbon
Crealies leaf die
Flowers from stash

CRAFT - Mother's Day
CES challenges - Flower frenzy
Crafty Ribbons - Celebrate your Mum
Creative Inspirations - Anything goes
Let's Ink It Up - Show us your flowers
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes

Don't forget to pop over to Dream Valley for more Mother's Day inspiration!

Love 'n' hugs,
