Happy Mother's Day

This was a different Mother's Day for me.  With my son stopping with me and spoiling me anyway with excellent food it was really nice to just have him here to say those magic sounding words,  It has been known for him to remember at about 10pm and send a FB message before now!  Next year normal service will have resumed so I'm making the most of this.

At home I'm in the middle of a pearl heavy necklace, need another 30 or more pearls.  Finding that paper-crafting is a welcome break again.  Tags have always been a favourite thing of mine todo and this afternoon it was fun to just have a little inky mixed media play.

Good old TH tag die, stamped and masked with the Clarity blossom branch and a little Stamping' up bee.   A TH tag stencil and Distress ink dusted over, more DI dusted over the tag in yellow and blue.  Masks removed ProMarkers used to colour main images making them really pop, the little bees wings were coloured with Sakura pen.   A little blue ribbon and bow just completed this tag.

Of course I checked a few challenges for inspiration before I started, they are.

Challenge up your life, going round and reacquainting myself with challenges I'm inspired by the new look many of them have and the work that is still going into keeping them fresh.   This challenge is a case in point with their theme for the fortnight of Tags.

Fashionable Stamping - This challenge has been around for a few years now, with some of the original team still making inspiring samples.   Another thing I've always loved is that this is a stampers challenge no digis allowed.   For Fashionable Stamping it is Spring time.

My time to Craft - Another fortnightly challenge that I used to enjoy and it is great to see them still here.   Their current prompt is Easter/Spring

Right I'm going back to being spoilt for the rest of the day.
