Bunches of Love

Good morning everyone, very cloudy and overcast here today, still no rain I.  I hope we get some soon as it looks like we will be in for water restrictions if we don't!  Would like to say a Big Hello to all my lovely new followers, do appreciate your time too come and visit mwah!!
Well I've managed to get my Mum's Mothers Day card done, really pleased with how it's turned out, changed the layout several times, and had a few goes at colouring lol!! I tried my promarkers again, but got so frustrated with them, chucked them back in the box!! I just can't use them, so I went back to my trusty Prisma pencils.  
My little white spots on their little cheeks haven't shown up, I did do it very lightly as I thought I might mess up lol!!, but it looks quiet nice in real life!


I have used Bunches of love by LOTV, and coloured with my Prismas. The gorgeous paper is by Nitwit designs.  I bought the paper ready printed from Witch Craft, which I'm lucky to have in my local Town centre, you can't see on the photo but it's really glossy and the butterflies stand out from the paper really gorgeous! The wording on the paper just sums up how we all feel about my Mum, she is Ace as Candice would say lol!!  The beautiful ribbon is from the Ribbon Girl, and I have used a Lace edge punch by Martha Stewart, hope this qualifies for the  LOTV Challenge as I tried putting real lace on, and it took away the look of that gorgeous ribbon!  I punched out a butterfly also by Martha Stewart, and those corners are the new release from Whimsy Stamps, there's four altogether and all delish!!  My sentiment was computer generated, and of course everything is stickled with star dust.

This is the inside, kept it quiet plain as I wanted to show off the gorgeous paper (Also I ran out of that beautiful ribbon lol!!)

Would like to enter for the following Challenges:

Better get a move on I'm on work in an hour lol!! Will definatly be round to see you all over the next few days..Hope you all have a great week..take care..
Biggest of hugs,
Marjorie

  22. Marjorie, this is fabulous - your Mum will be over-the-moon with this gorgeous card. Love everything about it.
    You are so lucky having a super craft shop nearby - my local one shut down several years ago, however, LOTV have just opened a bricks and mortar shop in Farsley - about 10 mins. drive from where I live - thought you might like to know as Doncaster isn't too far away.
    Hugs, Sylvia xx

  32. Couldn't find your email so in answer to your question. I got the cloud template from Bev Rochester at http://bevscrafts.blogspot.com/p/video-tutorials.html

    She uses distress inks or chalk and I use the Color Box Fluid Chalk Ice Blue. Hope this helps. "Hugs"

  34. Awww, this is just adorable Marjorie. Those LOTV images are just to die for! Now you've made me want Prisma pencils too. :)
    I wish I could send you some of the rain we've had here - half of NSW is underwater with floods. Where I live we had 100mm rain in an evening, the heaviest rain in 15 years. Our backyard and pool became one. I want some sunshine - swap?
