For my Mum


This is the Mother's Day card I have made for my Mum. She isn't on the internet so there is no danger of her seeing it. I bought this digi years ago and actually coloured her for my Mum once before. However the last thing I coloured were the knitting needles and I decided to colour them burgundy and they bled like mad. I couldn't rescue it and was so cross as I had spent ages colouring her so I used a different image and have never printed her out again until now. How many digis do we have sitting on our computers that we have never used? I am trying to remedy that this year.


A better look at the bottom layer showing the gorgeous mushroom border.

This is gorgeous Marianne. Stunning colouring of the sweet image. I love the papers and wonderful detailing too.
Yes, I am guilty of having a few digis sitting on my computer that I have never used, I often forget they are there until I am looking for something else.

I'm sure your Mum will love this - the easel design is fab, the colours are gorgeous and that image is so lovely - my M-I-L would love that too as she knits a lot!

I probably have lots of digis stashed away that I haven't used...it's easy to forget about them!

Big hugs, Kat xx
