Mother's....

What a chilly start to this Tuesday morning! Quite windy and very cool...what happended to spring?
This is my Mother's Day card for my mother-in-law.....Mother's are the stitches that hold a family together. That sentiment is from the Papertrey stamp set " Quilters Stampler", definetly one of my favourite stamp sets.
I received this wonderful image of Tilda holding a basket of flowers from a wonderful blogging buddie. I was so thrilled to receive this image as I had not ordered this stamp yet..but I think I may still as I just love it! I coloured her with copics....I am finding I still need so many more colours so I can shade properly...maybe for Mother's Day!!!


I am not too sure what the name for this card is...but I have made it to fold out and then in the inside is a pocket so that I can add my homemade tag inside of it. That way I can write my message on the tag! For my tag I stamped an Itty Bitty flower pot from the Karen Lockhart line over at Ellen Hutson's store! Love those itty bitty stamps for doing images on the corner of a card or for the outside of an envelope.
I am going to enter this card into a couple of challenges this week....
Just Magnolia- Anything Goes
I hope you have a wonderful day with lots of sunshine! Thank-you so much for your comments. I soooo appreciate your visit!

I can not believe that I didn't put a comment on this fantastic card. I'm busy catching up on your blog, and I exhausted my adjectives after the first comment. You are draining me with these fantastic cards.

I couldn’t not leave a comment on this little beauty. It is a really clever design, the papers are lovely and Tilda is stunning but I just love the inside with its lace pocket, stitches, ribbon and motif. Delightful, Christine! Hugs, Lesley
