Always Fun Challenges - Challenge 57 Female/ Mum

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How has your weekend been so far? We have caught up a bit on the gardening jobs. The car hunting has ground to a halt there just doesn't seem to be much available. Yesterday we saw both sets of parents. My parents we took out for a meal I share a birthday with my mother and my dad's is five days later. It is easier if we celebrate them all together. We then took the jacket and hat back to my in-laws. It was so good that neither of us had to buy anything for our costumes for the Murder Mystery. Today we are meeting up with our daughter and son-in-law to see Infinity War and share a meal. This is one of my birthday treats.

Being Monday the new challenge starts at Always Fun Challenges. This is challenge 57 and the theme is Female/Mum. Mother's Day in America is 13th May which isn't far away. I am sharing the card I made for my mother's birthday.

I treated myself to some new dies there was a sale of Spellbinders dies on Create and Craft.  I decided to use them to make this card. The backing paper was in my stash. 

If you click on the logo you will be taken to the challenge blog. 

This is bunch of Lavender was made with the Lavender Bunch die set by Spellbinders cut with different shades of centura pearl card. 

This die set it is the Lavender Swag also by Spellbinders. The Ovals in the background are Tattered Lace dies. 

This is a Tattered Lace die. 

I do like these dies I think I will be using them a lot. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Happy Crafting
