Hi everyone, hope you've had a great weekend. There is a bit of a story behind the card I made today and I'll try to keep it as short as possible so as not to bore you...
My pregnant daughter had her birthday last month and I duly mailed her cards in plenty of time but somewhere between England and Australia they decided to go walkabout - a bit disappointing for her but not the end of the world and I did send her the photos of them. Now this is the worst bit - she is rather partial to chocolate and a cake or two, but unfortunately she developed gestational diabetes and has had to give up all sugary things.... NO christmas goodies and NO birthday cake ! Baby's due anytime now so this is a replacement birthday card I've made to send (along with the baby cards) and I reckon this could be a picture of her after immediately after giving birth !!
The image is of course from Mo Manning and is called 'cupcake thief' which I coloured with Promarkers. The Penny Black sentiment worked perfectly as inside I shall write 'Eventually'.
I shall enter this in the following challenges
Allsorts challenge 'clean and simple'
Passion for Promarkers challenge 'show us your favourites'
lots of favourites here - image, sentiment stamp, Promarkers, Daughter, cupcakes
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'
The sentiment is printed on a snippet of card and I accidentally on purpose cut the image a bit too narrow so had to add a snippet of blue paper down the side... must say it looks better like that
Creative Inspiration challenge 'hugs and kisses - create something for a friend or loved one'
I reckon my daughter is both of those
and last but not least
DP2 challenge 'anything goes with a Mo image'
Thanks for popping by today and for all your lovely comments. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I hope you have a good week
