Hi all, isn't weather a funny thing, yesterday was so lovely and quite warm, today it is blowing and freezing cold I had to put my heating back on, my hands are like blocks of ice while typing.
For my card share today I have used another old stamp that I have had for many years I bought it from Funky Kits, I think it is an Elisabeth Bell rubber stamp, it was always a favourite of mine so I inked her up with Momento Tuxedo ink then coloured her with both Graph It markers and Copics, the papers are a mix of Bearly Mine and LOTV, all have been mounted onto Kraft card, I added glitter to the flowers on the image, yellow enamel dots and blue beads in a bottle I also added a string of pearl flowers, stamped sentiment and two die cut daisies.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Many thanks to all my visitors and to everyone who leaves me such lovely comments, I will be around to day repaying your kindness.  I have had my mum with me since Friday so my time has been limited on here.  She went home yesterday but she wanted to stay, she always wants to stay with me, lol, she loves my little Jess so much, Jess stays with her most of the time she also goes to bed with mum and acts as her hot water bottle my mum loves it, lol.
I always pamper her while she is with me I do her nails and this time did her hair for her as her hairdresser was away on holiday, ever since I can remember mum has always liked her hair looking nice she also loves her clothes, she is doing so well even though she will be 97 this year she still likes to look good, lol.
See you later have a lovely day

We must be lucky here in the Fens today Lorraine as it's still beautifully sunny, but there is a cold wind.

Another pretty Spring time card with the sweet image and Daisies and like all the jaunty angles of the mating and layering.

Thanks for joining us again at Allsorts, always lovely to have you join in.

Well spring has definitely arrived on this lovely creation Lorraine, beautiful image and colouring, fabulous design and papers, love the daisies too!
Cold here today too, but bright and sunny!
It's much more important to spend a bit of time with your Mum, than it is to visit blogs! Enjoy your time spent with her!

Gorgeous card Lorraine!
So great to read about your mother and Jess....cherish it! My mom (89) was a selfsupporting lady (3x a year on vacation to Portugal, drove her own car, etc.) till she got a stroke in August last year. Since she is rather dependent and had to give up all her 'own things'. She still lives on her own and tries to complain as less as possible, so it is not too hard for us to pamper her. We still enjoy her and we do our best to please her with taken her to the beach etc.

It's been a lovely sunny day here in the north Lorraine - doesn'tthe sunshine make such a difference. I love Elizabeth Bell stamps - some of the first I used when I started blogging, they aren't around so much these days but your pretty creation certainly makes up for it.

I always knew March could be a funny month and do not count on spring until April. The farmers back in the mountains of Western North Carolina always say do not plant until after May 15.
Your card is wonderful - such pretty work you do Lorraine!
