Mother's day card # 2

Happy Sunday every one - well it is almost Monday now but in my defence I think Blogger has been playing a really cruel April fool prank on me - it has taken me nearly 3 hours to publish this post grrrrrrrr!
On to today,s card, here is the second of my Mother's Day makes.

I have used one of my fave LOTV stamps, this little cutie reminds me so much of my own little cutie Paige (I always seem to buy stamps which resemble my kiddos, I think that's why I don't have many boy stamps ;-)

She has been coloured with my trusty promarkers and some glittery gel pens which I borrowed one of the girls (i gave them back i promise)

The DP is from the "Time for Tea" pad by Dovecraft and everything has been matted onto coredinations green card stock.

I hand stitched around the edges using silk embroidery thread (i bought about 30 different coloured balls from ebay and since then i've stitched around everything i make lol)

The inside has been decorated to compliment the front.

Well that's all from me today i'll be glad to put my lap top away my legs are burning!

Thanks so much for visiting, I hope you like my work.

Love and hugs xxcaraxx
