Hope all you ladies had a wonderful relaxing Mother's Day. My hubby is away for 3 weeks at the moment, so I wasn't sure what the children had in store!! But I received a lovely surprise with breakfast in bed from Luke which was delicious and Brittany decided to use her cooking skills and prepared the most yummy potato and leek soup with some crusty bread for dinner.. no cooking for me... YAY!!! Was really nice to veg out and relax for the day as I'm still feeling a bit blah at the moment.
First of all I wanted to thank all you lovely ladies who entered in our "Forever" challenge word. We had 45 entries which is absolutely amazing, the only negative is now we have to vote and it's going to be very difficult to choose out of so many amazing entries.
The new challenge word for this fortnight at Bird Is The Word is Sun/Sunshine this can be in your title or your journaling. You can create a LO, card or OTP and there is also another fantastic sketch from Nadia to inspire you if you choose to use it. Pop in and check out HERE to see all the gorgeous DT entries for added inspiration.
I chose a quote which I love and have used before, but I had to use it as it was perfect for this challenge... "Turn your face towards the sunshine and the shadows will fall away". I decided to use a gorgeous pp from Glitz Design which is a glorious grungy yellow and using Nadia's sketch as inspiration added a lace doily and a Hambly transparency for the circular elements and couldn't resist one of my most fav ranges from Websters "Wonderfall" which has these beautiful sunny daisies which I hand cut. Finished off with a touch of ribbon and lace.
A Little Toot
I was very excited to notice last week that Sofie over at Scrapmatts had featured my LO.
