More Mothers' Day Magic-in-the-Air

Hi there, and welcome!

I've been trying to get a post up here, but the week just seems to run away....whoooosh!'s gone!
Finally got some time to make something crafty 'n' fluffy today........HOORAY!

Our youngest daughter (Leigh-Anne) makes really beautiful patchwork quilts, and her children love to wrap themselves in her lovingly-made creations, so when I snagged this digi stamp from Nikki at I just knew that I had to make a card for her children to give to her, for Mothers' Day, which is this Sunday........ hope she likes it :D

I used the latest challenge sketch from which made this card come together really quickly and easily.......definitely unusual for Mrs.-takes-ages-to-decide-then-get-crackin' here, lol........I used a white card base, then layered up some My Mind's Eye cutey papers, which of course I had to do some hand=stitchin' on, lol......

The li'l angel was coloured with my trusty ole Promarkers, then given a bit of glam with pretty Stickles......who's a cutie, then?........

Added some pink bling......gems and more Stickles.........

And the sentiment tag was from that old QVC kit that I've had forever and will never get to the end of!  It was originally grey, so I trotted out my Pastel Yellow Promarker and sloshed it on with my delicate li'l hand.....

Oh.....nearly forgot......just saw the faux stitchin' around the background paper.....not used to doing that, lol!

Happy Mothers' Day to all you British Mums and Grandmas, includin' my 3 beautiful daughters, and 2 gorgeous daughters-in-law :D.

I'm entering this card here:

Use yellow, pink and green
