This That and the Other

Good Morning and Happy Mother's Day to all you mums in the UK!  I hope you are all going to be treated like queens for the day today!  At least the sun is shining and it looks like it is going to be a lovely day.

Today's card is one I have made using a Penny Black image:

I stamped him with Memento and coloured him with my Prismas.  I have put some Glossy Accents on the ladybug but it doesn't really show up.  The papers are by First Edition and the flowery one is glittered but you can't really see that either!  I have cut and matted the image with my Spellbinders Label (don't know which number).  I have used my new cloud dies from Memory Box which I saw on Vicky's blog and had to have (she always uses lovely dies which I then get -  costs me a fortune)!  The clouds have been edged in Stickles.  The butterfly and flower base are Doohickey dies and the flower is a Marianne die, the gem inside the flower and the pearls are from my stash.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - This That and the Other
Sundays with Crissy - Animals
Pan Pastel Challenge - Add a Flower
Penny Black and More - Spring Time
Allsorts Challenge - Three in a Row
One Stop Craft Challenge - Hand made Flowers
Delicious Doodles - The Wonder of Life

Well I am going to have a nice relaxing day (nothing new there, lol), my daughter is coming over to take me to lunch at the new place inside the Empress Ballroom in the Winter Gardens.  Hope you are all spoiled rotten today and have a fab day, take care xx

I've seen on many blogs the Happy Mothersday posts and I was shocked... did I miss Mothers Day??! But then I googled and found out that it's not Mothers Day in Switzerland... tee hee...lucky me! Ours is in May! :o)Didn't know that it is different all around the world...
Hugs, Alessandra
