Spring for mum

I can't believe its mothers day on the 14th of March and that its only a couple or 3 weeks away, and yet we are still having snow , daffodils are poking up , how confused is mother nature?

Well getting the first of my mothers day cards made and brightening up my desk as I sit looking at it and then at all the snow outside, I know which I prefer. Spring and thats the theme at Stamp something...a touch of spring, and it really is only a touch, if you look outside.

I love promarkers also have a spring theme and a fab layout that I really enjoyed using too, though I've varied where I put the embellishments a little and did move the text as it just didn't look right under the image, hope they don't mind.

ABC have a theme O is for one paper and I just used one background paper so I can enter their challenge too.

Passion for promarkers have a free colour challenge but want buttons and bows adding. Well buttons I have in abundance as there is the heart button and the 3 daisies are buttons too but I hope they will still let me enter as I only managed one bow but did use 3 different ribbons, does that still count please.

Quixotic have a straight forward challenge this week , create a card for mum so I think a mothers day card will count.

Secret saturday craft challenge are a bit more specific as they want an actual mother's day card so I can enter their challenge too.

Crafty catz have a theme of bear and a charm, well my image includes a bear so I was half way there but the charm was a problem as I have boats, planes, cars, trees but no girly charms ( will have to do something about that when I see some). I had to improvise , so I found this cute butterfly button and got out my glass beads, I think it works ok, does it count as a charm?

Allsorts have a straight forward challenge this time too, they want you to tag it , label it or use a ticket. Well I put my sentiment on a tag so hopefully that will be enough to count for their challenge.

finally but by no means least, Totally Gorjuss have a flower power theme this week. I think I have one or two flowers on my card, daisies on the background and daisy buttons too, hope these count, I know they arent posh prima flowers and the like but they are still flowers.

I can't belive my card covers so many challenges, well as I am supposedly only up here to clean my teeth I suppose I best pop back downstairs and then I can sneek another few mins later to put my pics on the posts and get them published... see you later.
