Mothers Day......

I'd like to say that I had a lie in this morning......but I can't, I'd like to say I'd had a cup of tea in bed.....but I can't, because last night I had a little person spend the night and this morning I was woken with a poke saying get up Nana at about 6.30am.......I'll probably need a little nap later especially after having had such a busy day at work yesterday as well. Hope some of you mums out there faired better, mind you I did get a big hug off him so it was well worth it.
Todays card is all romantic and mushy....ahhhh! I don't know why I made it other than having a play using resist techniques, firstly the background script was embossed and then removed after colouring the background, the heart was embossed with white and then watercoloured with distress inks, the flower was also distressed, misted with heirloom gold and then embossed for lots of sparkle, the only colours I used were Tea dye, Bundled Sage and Victorian Velvet even the lace was distressed and spritzed with gold and then stickles added for extra bling.Stamps used are from Viva and Elusive Images.
