Love to Create Challenge

Morning all.

Hope, if you're in the UK, you were able to enjoy a nice Bank Holiday lie in this morning.

It's time for a new challenge at Love to Create

This week our theme is

For Mum/Special Lady

Our sponsors this week are Stamp Art by Kathryn and Bugaboo. Both sponsors were kind enough to provide the DT with some images - I've used a Bugaboo image for mine Har Repotter.

Now those of you who know me and were here at Mother's Day in this country will know how traumatised I was at having to make a Mother's Day card then. Obviously Mother's Day in the US is at a different time, hence today's challenge.

When I saw Bugaboo were one of the sponsors I decided to get round this by choosing Har Repotter and making a card for me from the boys - you'd be surprised at the difference it made to me and the freedom I felt in creating the card because it's not actually going to go anywhere!

I ran my idea for making a card to look like a Spell Book past a couple of crafty friends and it was thanks to the lovely Anda that it became Mum's Book of Magic Tricks complete with Handy Hints to get children to eat veg. Once I had that idea it went from there, so I've also got a newspaper cutting (Stampin' Up paper), an old postcard (LOTV stamp) and a Friendship Recipe (LOTV stamp) simply because I remember things used to peek out of Mum's old recipe books!
