Mother's Day!

Had a card to make for a fella to give to his mum for Mother's Day and I just thought this lovely Edwin that my friend Jane stamped for me fitted the bill perfectly. He is a real sweetie. (So are you Jane lol)
I got my new retro flower punch from SirStampalot this morning, I only ordered it yesterday! Can't believe the service from that place, highly recommend it. It is one large punch and I have been punch happy ever since. I ran these through an embossing folder for some texture, and pin pricked the centres and glittered. The image is coloured with copics. Papers are from DCWV. I am entering it into these challenges:
1. Magnolia-licious Highlites - followed their lovely sketch (though did turn it to suit)
2. crafty Calender Challenge - flower power
3. Sketchy Colours - red, pink and turquoise
Had the biggest slice of Lemon Meringue Pie when I was out shopping today, yummy! Had dieted all week and in one sitting had piled the calories back on lol but it was worth it and I did refuse the cream!

You are right - Edwin is sooo cute, and this image is just perfect for a Mothers day card. The lemon meringue pie sounded delicious. !

Hi Pinky

What Mum would not love this one and from a fella absolutely perfect.

Yep, they really do excell themselves with delivery don't they. It's pretty rare and I think they realise when you but new stash you 'need' it now.

Very restrained on the cream, but lemon meringue is so packed with flavour why spil it.
