Happy Mothers Day!

It's Mother's Day here in the UK today, and I've woken up full of the joys of Spring and very much looking forward to a nice day out in the sunshine with my mum and some of my family later, so I thought I'd pop by now and share the card that I made for her ( she doesn't blog so I know I am safe and she won't see it early!).

I absolutely adore the new Hat Collection by Julia Spiri, and The Butterfly Hat was a perfect choice for my nature loving Mum. I coloured her with Clean Color water pens, and it's hard to see from the photo but I used a Wink of Stella pen to give some of the flowers a touch of sparkle. The backing paper is from the Spring Drop range by First Edition, and the flowers are a selection from my stash. I really love how this came together and hope my mum does too!

If you love Julia's images as much as I do then why not join her Facebook page where you can keep up to date with new releases, and share your work. She also has a challenge blog if you are a crafter who enjoys challenges.

I am entering this in the following challenges

Whatever you are all doing today I hope you have a lovely Mothering Sunday.
