And to all you lovely Mum's out there ......
Have a lovely day ..... put your feet up and let the kids look after you for a change, you deserve it! (That's my plan anyway!)
Before all that though ....... it's time to get all festive with my Christmas card for this week's Merry Monday Challenge.
It's all about using shades of Blue to create a Monochromatic Christmas card
Nothing very original from me I'm afraid ...... I've gone with the snowflake theme and my favourite Distress inks ...... simple
I stamped my snowflakes onto a piece of white cardstock, using Versamark ink, and them embossed them with a white, fine detail powder.
I then masked off a section at the bottom of the card and, using various shades of Blue Distress inks (Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire) I built up the colour over the top of the snowflakes.
Once I was happy with the background, I polished over the embossed snowflakes with a clean piece of kitchen towel, removing any ink from embossed images.
You can see I've also spritzed water onto the inked background to create the splattered look.
To finish off I added a festive sentiment stamped with Paris Dusk Memento ink (another shade of blue) and added a touch of sparkle with some fine crystal glitter
And of course inside was done too .......
Well that's another Christmas card done ........ I'm getting quite the collection now.
I have to confess though ..... I didn't get around to making any Mother's Day cards this year (ooops! That's me on the naughty step!!) I did sort out the presents though!
Hubby had to go out and buy a card to send to his Mum, and I actually went in a card shop yesterday (the first time in a while!) ..... I took the little man to choose a card for his mummy.
Must dash ..... we're off out for Sunday lunch today, and I'm still in my PJ's!!
I'm being spoiled (again!) ..... we're off to my favourite Italian restaurant on the island, seeing as it's Mother's Day ...... they're not a bad bunch!
Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Cheerio until next time
