Tea for One

Hi all!

I hope you all had a nice weekend, mine was lovely having spent it visiting my parents and enjoying each other's company. It's always a tiring weekend, as I need to travel for several hours to get there and back, but worth it!

As usual, another challenge is starting today @ Ooh La La, themed "FOR A SPECIAL LADY". I used this challenge to make a Mothers' Day card for my MIL, as the UK Mothers' Day is coming up soon; in the Netherlands we don't celebrate it until May. I managed to use up a last bit of lace I had lying around, always so satisfying when that happens, don't you think?

* Ooh La La Teatime image & DPs from the Yesterday's Memories CD
* K&Co Ancestry DPs, edged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink
* CartUs Scalloped Oval die
* Hot Off the Press You're Tea-rrific sentiment stamp
* Lace from stash

* Cute Card Thursday (Girls, Girls, Girls)
* Rhedd & Rosie's (Aged/Distressed) I've used Distress Ink
* Polkadoodle (Mum's the Word)
* Bearly Mine (One for the Girls)
* Card & Scrap (Ribbon and/or Lace)
* Seemacraft (Something for Mum)
* Cupboard Trilogy (Mothers)
* Freshly Brewed (Sketch or Photo Inspiration) I've used the photo to inspire the card's theme
* Gem of a Challenge (Mother's Day/Female Birthday/Special Lady)
* Ladybug Crafts (Anything Goes)
