First of all Happy Mother's Day to all my friends not in the UK. Goodness only knows why we can't have it all on the same day all over the world though, doesn't make any sense to me.....
This card is a variation of one I made in March for my MIL for Mother's Day. A house guest of ours saw it as I was blogging it and asked if I would make a card for his Mum. He is from South Africa and would be sending it to her by the postal system so I said I would adapt the design to make it less prone to get damaged in transit.
The fabulous image is called Rub-a-Dub-Dub and is designed by Stitchy Bear. You can purchase it in the Stitchy Bear store here
The image has been coloured with Promarkers and I have added some stickles glitter and Papermania glitter dots to highlight some of the bubbles and added some to look like there were bubbles that had spilled out of the side.
The blue paper is from a big QVC Colorbok pack and I have added ink to the edges of this and the paper too. I made the banner from scraps of card and added rub on lettering. I have strung the flags onto white wool and 'pinned' it up using Craftwork Cards Candi.
The Mother sentiment is a Sizzlits die I bought in the sale last year. I think it cost me just 49p and I knew it would come in handy. I cut it in blue 1st and then layered a white one on top adding some little black dots and a gem on the butterfly. The rest of the sentiment was made up using the rub ons.
Our friend Jean was delighted with it. We are not sure if it has arrived yet so keeping our fingers crossed. By all accounts things go missing in the post all the time in S.A. so hoping that this gets through to her okay :)
