For you Mum...

...well what can I say you only get ONE!
I am fortunate enough that I still have mine.
This time of year can be pretty tough for all those who have lost their mums.
But still, take a moment to remember your precious memories 
for those cannot be taken from you.
To all mums everywhere xxx

My mum just adores purple,
 so for her card there was no other colour choice.
The design paper is a First Edition from the 'dreamcatcher' range.
The cardstock is as per usual by Papermania.
The pearls are from my stash.

This divine little stamp is 'dress up maggie' by Sugar Nellie.
I'm sure we can all remember dressing up 
in mums clothes and shoes when we were small.
Although I still find myself borrowing her clothes and shoes now...
Out came the beloved promarkers to colour her in.
I used stickles 'dark blue' for her necklace,
and 'pearly stuff'' in gold by Woodware 
for the centre of the flower on her hat.

I cut out this buckle on my cricut using the 'fabulous finds' cartridge.
I used this patterned holographic gold cardstock from my stash,
I found it added an extra texture to the buckle.
The satin ribbon was one of my Boyes bargain specials.
(Our local store has a bucket full of various ribbons for only 40p)
I think it has become my second home!

This gorgeous flourish is one by Cheery Lynn, 'tropical flourish'.
Once again using a lilac cardstock by Papermania.
