Shabby Sunday #11 – Happy Mother’s Day

Shabby Sunday #11 – Happy Mothers Day

On this week’s shabby Sunday I made a card for my mother in law…. I asked my hubby “what do you want on the card?” his reply “Pink, Cream, Gilding and a rabbit!!”  pfft.. remind me next time not to ask lol

Just as well I attended a workshop on gilding yesterday in Edinburgh at Stampers Grove!

So armed with my new techniques .. I trotted off up to my shed to make the card..

Shabby Sunday #11

It’s pink, there is cream, and gilding, but the rabbit is nowhere to be seen… he got a butterfy instead!
