Well peeps this is my card for TTPH and the digi has been supplied by Sweet Pea Stampers

I was really pleased when I finished colouring him 'cos he looks quite furry and I can assure you this is more by luck than judgement - lol!!!  I made the flowers on the sides of the frame out of a piece of card/paper from First Edition's 'Rose Garden' pad.  The page has printing all over it with faint pink hearts here and there.  I used a Small Tea Rose die from Cheery Lyn and when they were made I sprayed them (and the corners) with Crafter's Companion Pearl Spray.  This gives a lovely finish and in real life they look like porcelain.

Digi - 'Dozen Roses' by Conie Fong at Sweet Pea Stamps
LOTV - 'Country Meadow' Nitwit Collection paper pad
First Edition - 'Rose Garden' paper pad
Tonic - 'Big Hug' semi die set
Tonic - Scalloped Circle Layering dies
Cheery Lyn - Small Tea Rose die
Copic Markers
Crafters' Companion Pearl Spray
Pink Nail Heads - found in my stash recently and I can't put them down!!

I do hope you enter this challenge to make a card for a mother or indeed, any woman in your life.

Thank you for checking my blog and for any comments you may have made.  I do appreciate your kind thoughts and wishes - oh I must tell you I have lost 13lbs thanks to my 'diabetes' diet.  I'm trying hard to lose enough weight so that my glucose levels get back to normal and I can stop taking the flippin' tablets.  Of course there's still loads of me to go yet - even me love handles have their own love handles - too much information?????? - but I do feel loads better already - apart from the ingrowing toenail - and that is another story.  Needless to say the Mobile Blood Transfusion Unit was standing outside - much to the maestro's relief.

Big hugs to you all and don't forget the challenge!

Take care
