I am a little late posting my DT card for the new
For The Girls

Having my mum here for so long it has put me all out of kilter, I am not used to having someone staying with me for so long and it is now beginning to tell on me.  Since I was retired from work I spend most of the time on my own and rarely have visitors or go out.
Mum does come to spend one night at least every other week while my brother goes out for the night but anything longer is difficult.  However, I did enjoy spending extra time with mum and although she is 91yrs young she still tries to help as much as she can bless her.

Anyway onto my card.
I have used the image Betty Perfect Day and coloured her with Copics, I went for a red, white and silver colour combo mainly because I love the paper which is from Bearlymine. I have used my circle scalloped Nesties for the image and Die Cuts for the two bottom silver corners and the hearts.  The heart die cuts are new and I really love this open work one which I cut with both red card and silver mirri, I used the full heart from the set to adhere to.
The sentiment is a Whimsy rubber stamp from Quixotic Paperie, finally I added some taffeta ribbon and bow.

The picture below shows the todays new release of Stamp fairy Images called
Lenny & Linda Wedding and can be found
There is also a release of matching digi papers HERE

I hope you will come join us for our challenge at Stamp Fairy but remember you will need to use a Stamp Fairy Image to win.

Hi Lorraine

Wow 91!!

That makes my 80 year old Mum sound like a spring chicken!! LOL!!!

It is funny how we get used to our own routines and anything different throws us off course.

Some people like being thrown from their routine .. .. others are not so comfortable with it. I think I sit somewhere in the middle.

Your Stamp Fairy DT card is lovely. You colour beautifully.

I have you to thank for sending me to the Stamp Fairy store the other week when you posted about their 50% offer. Now I am falling in love with lots of their images!!!

Have a lovely Easter Lorraine.

Love Jules xx
