Mother's Day

I've been doing a bit of housekeeping on my computer ( definitely not my house) and I found a card I forgot to blog for Mother's Day.
The stamps were a freebie of a magazine, I used first edition papers, bird cage charm, pearls and flowers from my stash, I coloured the image with copics. 

I would like to enter it into the following;

Tim Holtz Father's Day

Hiya, well I actually got started with my Father's Day cards, I thought I would share this one with you. I've gone all Tim Holtz, I bought a set of three of Tim's dies so I cut one out to try as you do and thought Wow that makes a great stencil, so the paper is a cheapy from The Works, but the quality is totally amazing so thick, and I stenciled with a bit of Black Soot distress ink.

I coloured with copics
W03,05,07 R95
C03, 05
the eyes and teeth are 3D lacquered,
hope you have all had a productive weekend, I had to work until 4 yesterday
then this morning I had a ride out to see Mum and Dad, and a play this after, 
so a really nice day.
