Mothers Day at Cheery Lynn

 Inspired by 'Tate', a real person in an unreal world ;)



Hi and Good Morning. :)   Well we are finally drying out up here, but what a battering we took last week in the storms and floods!  Tut! :)
 
Anyway, our new challenge this week over at Cheery Lynn  Designs  is 'Mothers Day', and as always the winner will receive a brilliant $20 voucher to spend online at the Cheery Lynn Store, so well worth playing along.
 
Now, sadly, I dont have my mum around anymore, but still find myself making cards that I know she would have really liked, and she loved anything with faeries, butterflies and flowers, so  she would have really loved this card too.
 
I started off with a 6 x 6 inch card base, and layered MME papers (and scraps) onto white American Crafts cardstock.  All the die cuts were made with this same card too, as it cuts beautifully.  The image is a digital stamp from Crafts & Me.
 
I used 4 new release dies on this project, and started off by bordering the side panel with the City Girl Edger, and layering on top the Vertical Mesh Heart border.  I tucked the stunning Felicity Doily behind my image and added one of the new words from the sentiments range at the bottom.  The flower is made from the fabulous Daisy Strip, and I  added a couple of my favourite butterflies to finish.
 
All dies used on this card are:
 
 
I hope you find time to join in this week, and dont forget there is always fresh inspiration over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog.
 
Have a smashing week, and thanks so much for visiting my blog today,

I often think of my Mum when I'm crafting too......
I love your touches of green in this - very powerful with your crisp white & pink plus the ecru/browns.
Overcast & dull here but warming up & I think the tulips might flower in the near future.
