Today I have a card that I would like to enter into the following challenges:
I have used a 6 x 6 white scalloped card base, the papers I think are Back To Basics, I have mounted both the papers and image onto pastel textured card, I added faux stitching to the corners then added some flowers, the image is a Penny Black Slapstick stamp that I have had for a few years I coloured the image with Copics then doodled a frame.
I thought you might like to see the latest picture of Jessie and my Mum who will be 94 this year.  They love each other so much Jess brings my mum so much pleasure and happiness.
I want to thank you for visiting and for leaving comments they really do mean the world to me.

God love her and Jessie, those blue eyes, she is so gorgeous. Tell your mum she's catching up to my dad [he was 100 in Januray].

love your PB stamp and colours are beautiful which you always seem to do with 'love'. Keep well and take care...luv aNNie..

This is so pretty Lorraine, what an adorable image and pretty papers.
Jess has certainly grown into a gorgeous young lady and your Mum looks fabulous - I would never have thought she was 94 this year more like 54.

That is a lovely picture of your Mum and Jessie Lorraine, as you rightly say our four legged family members do indeed bring so much love and comfort.

And I love your card, this is a real Penny Black favourite of mine. Will tell you a little secret why, there is a picture of me aged about five wearing an outfit just like that, only different is I have a dog with me.

Hi Lorraine
Your card is stunning! Loving the pink with splashes of green and other complimentary colours. The image is super sweet and I love the finishing touches with the flowers too.
Glad to see your Mum and Jessie are best buddies and have so much love to give to each other.... it certainly makes days go faster and brings lots of joy at the same time.

Stamping in Pink said...

Hi Lorraine, as always fab colouring and a very beautiful card.
Fabulous and oh so cute is little Jess - and I bet knows it! I adore JR's, the first dog I've had but so much character!
As reading the comments at the start I thought to myself how rude, someone has said your mum is 94. I read her age as 74 and was shocked when I went back to double check - she looks in her 60's! Good genes and healthy living! hugs Karen xx

Davi said...

Lorraine that little image is most precious and your coloring is beautiful! I love the sweet dp and the diagonal strip to go with her!It really is a beautiful card! Gosh Jess is growing like a little weed and she looks pretty comfy there with your mum!! It a special pic with the both together :)

Linda said...

Adorable card. I love the picture of your Mum and Jessie. Your mother is beautiful. She looks much younger. My Mother in Law is 93. She is from England. I love having her here with us. She really enjoys my kitties. Oh the things and changes these ladies have seen in their lifetime. Amazing!
