Morning all, And Happy mothers Day!!!
Oh how I used to love the weekend, laying in bed, getting up when I wanted, now I have 2 children demanding when I get up! Roll on 16 years time when they get up and leave me sleep!

If you want to but a Heart Song Designs dig you can always pop to the shop! Remember we still have the amzing New Release bundle, if you purchase the bundle you will receive all 10 new releases as well as save $6!!!
Here is my creation for the week, I used the lovely new release digi Pretty Parasol, I couldn't wait to colour this one when I saw it, Such a beautiful spring image! reminds me of April days and that song from Bambi 'drip drip drop little april showers'!
The papers are old ones from magazines, but I thought they were quite spring like, and brightened the image! This is one of the final mothers day cards, I only have one to make (i know they should all be done by now!) and that is what i'm about to get one with, thanks goodness i'm not seeing my mum till later!
Here is a close up of one of the roses, I have punched it from the papers I used for the backing, I then put the opposite flower to the opposite paper, if you get me?!?. I will post a link to the tutorial for the rose on the tutorial page.
Here is a close up of the image, I coloured it using my pro-markers, I forgot to take note of the colours, only because my eldest is ill (we think we may have chickenpox), I tried to distract her by getting her to help me, she kept putting the pens away before I finished! It was funny to sit there with her and ask her to get colours out for me, she did a very good job, till she got bored and tried to make stairs with them!
