Something for Mothers Day....

and its not purple!!!!
What an achievement lol! Yup I have a pink card to share today lol.

I used my new LOTV Bunches of love stamp that I bought from GNPE. I also used the new Mother's Day sentiment from LOTV and my new card candy. I coloured it up with the ole Promarkers and added stickles to the gorgeous WOC roses.

Now the paper and the fact that it is plain well um yup lol. I go through these random phases of not using any patterned paper - how odd! Is it just me ??!!

Anyway I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

So day 8 of placement and I am still alive - just. I spent most of last night crying my eyes out because I taught my first lesson yesterday afternoon and basically it went up in flames :( (not literally!) but I went in today and laid down the law! And had a much better lesson this morning - lets hope R.E. is the same tomorrow. Cross your fingers lol!!

So off I go, we've just got a new oven and I'm dying to try it out! I couldn't turn the old one on myself because the pilot had gone and my arms are simply not long enough to reach to the back with a match!
I'll hopefully be back soon!
