Good morning all, hope you had a good weekend.

Today's card is another Mother's day one, this time it's the one I made for my granddaughter's to give to their mummy. 

I tried to replicate their little family with two girls and two dogs. So I used an old stamp for the 2 little girls and then part of the Lawn Fawn, Critters at the dog park set for the dogs. 

I stamped the girls with brown ink on to Kraft paper and then heat embossed them with fine detail embossing powder. Then I watercoloured the images with Distress Inks.

I stamped the dogs on to some light brown card and cut them out with the matching dies. Just colouring their noses and leaving the rest plain.

I used papers from our What A Hoot pad by Trimcraft and backed it with a mid pink card. 

I used some dies from the MFT Dynamics range for the stitched panel and bow and then added lace and ribbon from the stash.

I found some coordinating flowers and grouped them in the bottom corner, then added a few flat backs to the ribbon.

I finished it off with a sentiment from the Crafters Companion, Sentimentals Greetings - Female set stamped in Pink Archival ink.

Hope you like it, take care and I'll see you soon.
