From Christmas to Mother's Day!

This is my second post for today. Scroll down for an explanation of the post title. After doing some housework and washing I settled down for some serious crafting. I have made a couple of Mother's Day cards and made two last night as well which I shall share with you either later today or tomorrow.

After not buying any papers since my Christmas holiday I bought 3 pads yesterday, as they were all half price. Two of them were the Papermania capsule Boysenberry and Blueberry Pie which only came out a short while ago. I'm so glad I resisted buying them when they first came out. A few other goodies fell into my basket as The Range now stock Fizzy Moon, which I love.

I was lucky enough to win the February giveaway at Digistamp Boutique which was an Easter digi and £5 to spend in store. I bought some lovely images with that this morning. This month there is a lovely wedding image plus £5 to win.

Now onto my card which has a lovely patchwork effect and is for the following challenges:
Secret Crafter Sweet treats
The Crafty Pad Something yummy in my tummy
CRAFT colour challenge
Friday Sketchers
Wild Orchid Anything goes

Image - Lili of the Valley
Medium - Letraset Promarkers

Papers - Papermania Capsule Boysenberry, Wild Rose (green), Poundland (purple tissue paper)
Tools - leaf punch

Flowers - Wild Orchid
Sentiment - computer generated
