Dream Valley Challenges DT Card - Mother's Day


Wow, it's Monday again already, where do these weekends go?  We had a reasonably quiet weekend.  Iona's lurgy thankfully didn't last long and she was fine by the time she got up on Saturday.  Yesterday we had a lovely afternoon at a friend's granddaughter's christening.  Back to work today though :(

Ok on to my Dream Valley challenges DT Card for this fortnight's theme Mother's Day.  We have two fabulous sponsors The Hobby House and Crafts and Me.  We'd love you to join us so we can see your own take on the challenge.

I've used a cute topper from The Hobby House that I've had in my stash for a while.  This set is called Spring Bringer and is by Sylvia Zet.

The papers are First Edition Birdsong and I've also used a couple of Dovecraft Curiosity Corner doilies to add an extra layer and colour.  I've distressed and inked the edges of the paper and image with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink for extra definition.  The LOTV sentiment has also been stamped with the distress ink.  I've added a precious heart die cut with a Memory Box die, matching checked ribbon, various flowers and some Hobby House pearls to finish.

That's me.  Off now to make a quick meal before Iona heads out to Girl's Brigade.

Have a lovely evening,
Shona xx
