Love Your Mum!

It is so nice to be back here as a guest artist.  Cathy always has such yummy stuff in the store.

We celebrate Mother's Day in the UK in March but it's celebrated in America next month, so now would be a great time to start making a special gift for Mum.

I created this little blackboard which will be ideal for making a note of those items which have run out or may be a note of what is on tonight's menu.

The base is a child's blackboard - an ideal, super-cute size!  The fresh spotty paper is from My Little Shoebox Bird's Eye View and the edges are covered with Imaginisce Good Morning Sunshine.

I have cut out the lovely icons from My Little Shoebox Half a Cup paper.  If you look really close at the muffin, you'll see that it's sprinkled with Stickles.

Create a lovely pleated rosette using Granny's Apron, top it off with a fabulous pearl from Kaiser Craft's Embellishment pack.  The very sweet chipboard knife and fork from Maya Road which have been coloured with silver ink.  Add a few roses for a feminine touch and voila! 

Don't forget that there is still time to enter the fabulous sketch challenge running until Sunday 11th April.  Check all the details here.

Thanks for stopping by.
