Happy Mother's Day

It's Sunday, and a special day for mums everywhere. But not just mums, there are so many Aunts, Nanas, Sisters and other special ladies out there who deserve a special day too. I hope each and every one of you is enjoying your day.

I WOULD have had the card I made for my mum to share with you today...that's IF I had remembered to take some pics of it!!!!! *eyes roll!* Luckily, I know my mum will keep it, so I'll get some next time I see her. Instead, I want to tell you about the latest challenge over at The Crafty Pad.

Challenge #162 is all about PERFECT PAIRS. Click HERE to find out more details, and check out Team A's wicked inspirational creations.

I've decided to share one of my cards I've not had the chance to show until now, it's a monochromatic card with an image of a really cute kiddy couple, it's called First Dance and is available from The Stamping Boutique.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and used some black & white DPs, card, some lace, and a border punch. I made a posh pin and the sentiment is from Sentiments 4 You. I reckon they make a really 'perfect pair!'

I will enter my card into the following challenges:
Thanks for looking. x
