Happy Mother's Day

Yes I know it is a little early....but it can't hurt to get started early. Actually mother's day is the challenge for a few blogs this week...since I guess it is that time of year in the UK right now. So...I decided to play along today. Here is what I came up with.First, I am pretty excited to finally be able to take photos outside again! There is nothing like natural light for photos. Now, I didn't say it was warm, I just said that there was actually some sun shining...lol. I started by stamping this little girl image from TAC on some white CS. Then again on the pink PP and the blue PP. Then I colored with marker, and paper pieced the bow, shirt, and pants. Next, I ink distressed that piece of white CS with pink ink, and layered onto the pink CS. Then I layered that onto the pink PP that I also used for the girls shirt and bow. Then I added the ribbon and the little flower, both from Maya Road. Last I used a punch and punched the scallop circle from pink CS, and the white circle. I ink distressed the white CS circle, and hand wrote the sentiment. Well that is all for now. Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to stop tomorrow for a brand new Creative Belli Challenge!

(I'm a UK gal and my brother lives in the US...meaning my mum gets two mother's days each year!). Your card is really sweet and I'm impressed that you write your own sentiments - mine would turn out waaaaaay too illegible! Thanks for joining us for this week's Cupcake Challenge.
