Mother's Day 2021 part 1

Hello friends.  I hope you've had a good start to the week.  I'm on leave this week so my start has been very good.  Today I'm sharing the card I made for my mother for Mother's Day (we had ours last weekend in the UK).  I've titled this post part 1 as I made cards for my boys to give their grandmas and I also made a card for my husband to give his mother but I'll share them in separate posts so not to bore you lol!).   I hope you like today's card.

Isn't that image just adorable.  I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured it with my Promarkers.  I thought the card looked too plain so I added the small heart randomly around the image and again coloured them with the same Promarkers.  So that they matched the dark lines of the stamped image I used a multi-liner pen to draw around them.  I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onxy Black ink and added a few sparkle gumdrops to finish.  I added my panel onto a yellow card panel and then adhered this to my card base.  As my card was 7x5 in size I made a matching envelope from plain green card.  I did decorate the inside too with a few hearts but forgot to take a photo d'oh!  Of course my mother loved it lol!

There are lots of spring inspired challenges around at the moment so I would like to enter my card here:

Inkspirational challenge - fur or feathers (my little bear has fur)
Alphabet challenge - Y is for yellow
Sweet Stampers challenge - Easter or spring
Allsorts challenge - spring flowers
Sweet Stampin' challenge - spring mood board

I hope you have a great week, whatever you are up to.  Tomorrow is going to be a tough day for us as it's the first anniversary of my father's passing.  It's been a very difficult year, especially with everything else that has been going on, but we are all supporting each other and as long as he is in our hearts he will never truly be gone.  

Stay safe lovely friends, sending lots of love.

Hero Arts - Happy stamp & cut (for the sentiment)
Your Next Stamp - white sugar & sparkle gumdrops (Dies to Die For)
