New Challenge!!!

Woohoo! Audsentiments starts today!  The idea of this challenge blog is that Aud sets a sentiment and we all get to do what we want with it!

Aud has worked really hard at getting our first few sponsors set up (and is still on the lookout for more..hint hint!) - and our very first sponsors are........

Are you ready for the sentiment......drum roll etc etc......toot toot (that was the trumpets sounding their fanfare!)....HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Now - for most of the world that's just great timing - however, we in UK like to get a jump on people and we already had ours back in March!   SO - how about this for getting a jump on my year, I have done my little card ready for NEXT year!

So without further ado......

Yay - Bee Crafty have been ultra generous and offered us DT the chance to pick an image from their collection.  There were so many really apt images so I thought I would explain why I chose the image that I did - its not a traditional Mother's Day type image!  I am adopted so this image spoke to me of a non-biological "mum" looking on anxiously as her children learn to fly!

I ever so slightly cropped the image (there was another bird on the branch) to make it fit on my card properly!  You can't see it very well, but the background of the image is actually a little sparkly in the blue chalk.

I would soooo love to know why I just can't get all these photos to line up on the blog where I want them to!

Above is the close up of the "bag" and then below is the all important sentiment - you must include this sentiment on your creations to join in the challenge!  I so hope you will join us on this first challenge and really look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!

Thanks for looking

Cute image lol! Love the story behind it, love the shaped card and matching handbag. Edward's mum still lives in England so she has two Mothers Day and Oz from us and an English one from her other children, she thinks it great.
