I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Just Cute Bears #7

This is my DT card for this week's challenge on Just Cute Bears which is:-

MOTHER'S DAY

I experimented with this card using my new distress inks. I used tools to distress the edges of the paper then used inks over the edges. I also used over the doily, which I love the effect. Will definitely do this again. It's difficult to see in pic but the centre of each flower on the image has a pearl.

We are sponsored again by Cuddly Buddly and you could win this lovely stamp

Papers: Basic Grey "Nook & Pantry" from Secret Crafter
