MAWTT Challenge 140 - 'Special Lady'

Good Morning! Hope everyone is well - it's Thursday again and time for another wonderful challenge over at.....

Moving Along With The Times

The lovely Pami is our hostess this week and she has chosen the fab theme of

'Special Lady'

So we would like to see a card for a 'special lady' in your life - it could be your mum, sister, daughter, gran, aunt, friend etc.... 

With Mother's Day fast approaching I have chosen to make a card for my mum. I know it's very bright and bold but that is what my mum loves. She hates drab and dreary. So I think you can safely say that this card is not dull!!! LOL  

Our sponsor this week is the wonderful Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps

and they very kindly gave us some images to play with....

I chose 'Sparkles' as I thought she would go really well with this Kate Knight paper that I know my mum really loves. I've had this pad for ages - it was a freebie on magazine and you got quite a few pages of each pattern. The border is done with a Nellie Snellen die and the lovely ribbon is from MeiFlower

The gorgeous Prima Polka Dot Flower and the little Hero Arts Gemstones are from My Crafty Heart. The sentiment was made on computer.

I've coloured her with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and then added lots of Star Dust Stickles to her wings. She really does 'sparkle' in real life!!! 

Stitchy Bear Stamps are very kindly giving this week's winner a $10 dollar voucher to spend in-store!!!!.

I hope you can join us for this wonderful challenge - we also have 5 new team members!!! 

They are all mega talented and I am really looking forward to working with them. It would be great if you could hop on over and visit their blogs and give them a warm welcome!! They have also introduced themselves on our MAWTT blog... just click here to read...

So do hop on over to MAWTT  for more details of the challenge and to check out my teamies wonderful creations this week - they are all fabulous!! a great variety of styles and inspiration....
