Sassy Mother's Day

Hi there, well the good weather didn't last very long, it's back to cold winds again. Never mind it's nice and warm in my Bat Cave.
I must say I really enjoyed being a DT on all my different challenge sites, but I made a decision to take more time for myself, so I retired from all bar one, The Crafter's Cafe and I'm loving not Having to craft if I don't want to, therefore I'm enjoying my crafting time even more. I don't know how long it will last before I get fed up but at the moment I'm enjoying the freedom.


Here's another Mother's Day card using Sassy cheryl's cup-of-cocoa
I coloured her with copics, paper pieced the chair, the paper was a freebie from a magazine last year, making memories banner and flower dies, rub ons and a bit of ribbon from my stash.

That I coloured with copics, used some old card i had with gold stars on, some gold card for mounting, ribbon, paper flowers and leaves, and a silver charm that I coloured with my copics.


Don't forget if you play with a Paper Shelter image you have a chance of winning this gift voucher, it's worth $30. If you play with a different brand then you have a chance of winning three digis of your choice.

This is my last card as a DT for the Paper Shelter.
I have had the most amazing time, and have made many friends, but unfortunately everything must come to an end and I feel now is a good time for me to leave, I wish all the best to my fellow DT's and all the new ones.
I'd also like to thank Veronica and Pedro for there generosity with all the lovely images they gave me, I still haven't used them all yet, but I'm sure I will
