Cute One for Mum at the Cutie Pie Challenge Blog

Hello, how’s things?! Hope all the UK bods have been able to enjoy this nice dry weather we are having right now.  Long may it reign (please note spelling of reign!!)!

Today we begin a brand new challenge over at the Cutie PieChallenge Blog and our theme this fortnight is A Cute One for Mum!  Well, I have to make four for my mum. Not that she’s greedy or anything it’s just one for myself and one each for my three brothers! They are not likely to make their own ………… (Sorry, just giggling at the thought of that!)

This time the cuties are lucky to have 2 wonderful sponsors.
The first is BugabooStamps

and one lucky winner will win 7 digis from their amazing range. Wow!

where one lucky sausage will win £10 to spend in their fabby online store. Double wow!

Now if that’s not a massive incentive to join in I don’t know what is!

So, being on the ball this year I have already made all my Mother’s Day cards! (Get me!) Therefore I had a chance to do one JFF.  Which is a good job as the Bugaboo image I chose to use, called Girl and Flowers available here, is quite funky and my amazing mother may be many gloriously wonderful things, but funky isn’t one of them!

To fully embrace the funky theme I plumped for a non-trad hair colour! And as purple is my fav colour that was the way I went using my Promarkers on super smooth card.

Dies:  Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 & Bracket Borders 1 (my fav!) – Tattered lace borders – Tonic Vines
Paper/Card: American Crafts – Super Smooth – LOTV & NitWit ‘Promises’
Colouring/Ink: Promarkers – Dusty Concord DI
Others: Tonic flower punch – Martha Stewart Mould and air dry clay – flat backed pearls – liquid pearls – sentiment free with a mag

So there you go a potty plethora of perfect purpleliciousness! (Hmmmmmmm!) J J

Pop over to the Cutie Pies blog to see the inspirational makes created by my teamies and join in with our fab challenge.  But please, please, please make it cute. The awwwwww-factor is definitely a requirement.

Thanks so much for looking!
See ya!

Scribbly hugs
