Friday Snippets - One for Mum

Hello Lovely Peeps

Things have been a bit topsy turvy this last week and I am trying desperately to get back on a level footing again.  So I thought I would get back on the straight and narrow by posting the card I made for my Mum last week.

I bought this stamp with my Mum in mind as she has Hunka Munka from about the 1950s when these first appeared and is my Mum's favourite Beatrix Potter story.  When it came to Mum's birthday I forgot where I had put the stamp so made her something different.  However, I came across the stamp and as my Mum has not been feeling very well lately I thought I would make her a card "just because"!

Just made with some scraps left over from a scrapbook layout (not yet shared that one with you!) and surprise surprise I have used the pop up form which, as you may be aware, I love! 

I am linking it with our Playground Leader, Di, as it is made from scraps.  And I had a lovely surprise today when I discovered that I was lucky enough to be drawn from her basket to win some Promarkers.  That was a perfect end to my lovely week!  Thanks Di.  I hadn't realised it before as I was packing my case to go away on Sunday evening (when I normally look at the Roll Call) and went to bed early (I had a 4am start on Monday!).  I will be calling by later this evening to see you all so stand by your beds!

I do love that style of card and Beatrix Potter images are always fabulous Sam. This one is lovely and the colouring is great - it's sure to please your Mum.

The Pro Markers will be on their way after the weekend. Sitting on my desk here glaring at me so I won't forget!

Have a great weekend, Di xx
