Happy Mothersday *Ü*


Another challenge over at COLOUR CREATE CHALLENGE blog today.. and this week they would like to see the lovely combination of Navy, Turquoise and Lime.

The extra option is to not use patterned paper.. That is definately a gorker of a challenge for me the PP-addict.. so I used the lush MME papers and am prepared to get my hand slapped!!! lol

Again I’ve used one of the new Homegrown boys from SUGAR NELLIE, they are available from FUNKY KITS.. a few are out of stock at the moment .. but they are working their little sox off over in Elgin to re-supply them to the shop. 🙂



Happy Mothersday to all the Mum’s that celebrate it today.. I’m in a bit of a weird one.. as I am being spoilt today by my kiddies.. but am not celebrating it with my Mum as Mothersday is not until May in Holland 🙂

Hubby and my 3 Angel-monsters brough up a cuppa tea in bed this morning, very early as Grant had to get to work early.. [by having a Garden Centre, we have to take the weekend trade!] so the only thing I didn’t get was a lay-in!! lol

Have a wonderful day all, whatever you are doing 🙂

Big hugs,  Marlene xx

    Is het nu al moederdag bij jullie???? Nou dan laat je maar eens goed verwennen.
    Hele leuke kaart en weer schitterend papier. Heerlijk zo een “oud jeans” effect. En wat toevallig dat je juist de gevraagde kleuren had!!!!Ben vanmorgen op je oude blog belandt en heb daar hele leuke creaties gezien. Maar wat een verschil met de kaarten die je nou maakt.
    Fijne zonnige dag
    Groetjes Sinikka
