Mother’s Day cutie

Mother’s Day is the theme this week at AiFactory Challenges.You have until Wednesday 11th May 11.59 to upload your project.For more details head on over.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT’s beautiful work while you’re there.

Here are the new release  Mother’s Day special images :

For my card I’ve used the rather adorableMother’s Day Special Boy in the Pot from Ai Factory.But any of the images would look fabulous.I’ve coloured him with Promarkers and added Glamour Dust to the flowers.The two die cut circles have also been edged with it and I’ve dotted the middle of the flower brad too.I picked up these gorgeous Ooh La La For Her papers from my local craft warehouse for the bargain price of £3.99!They’re double sided and come with a coordinating accessory sheet.I tried to show this by turnng back one corner and pining it in place with a brad.This is also my first attempt at doing one of these bows with the twirly tails.

Here’s a closer look at all the pretty sparkle :
