Special Female

This is what happens when you get up at 3:30 in the morning - you forget to post!  Today sees the start of a brand new challenge over at Lexi's Creations and the theme this week is Mothering Sunday or A Special Female.  I know we in the UK have already celebrated Mother's Day but a  lot of countries have yet to celebrate it.  If you don't want to do a Mother's Day Card that's fine just make a card for a special female - mother, gran, daughter, sister, aunt you get my drift!  As I no longer have my mother I have done a card for someone special:


Quite a simple CAS card really.  I used Lexi's DIY Butterfly which I printed straight onto the linen cardstock.  I also printed another on some Pink Petticoat gingham paper and cut it out and put over the image on the card.  The sentiment is computer generated and printed straight onto the cardstock.  I used a corner punch which I got in my yummy candy from Susan - thank you! Some pearls from my stash to finish.  

Our sponsor this week is:


who have kindly donated five digi images from their store.

Please pop over to Lexi's Creations and see what the rest of the DT have done.  Please remember that we are now limiting entries to 2 so that it is fair for everyone.

Thank you for looking today, sorry I was late! Take care xx
