Charisma Cardz Challenge 11

Good morning everyone. Well, I finally have
a Mother's day card on it's way to my Mum. I thought I was going to run out of time!

Luckily, the lovely Jo has set a sketch as the theme for this week's Charisma Cardz Challenge. So I used it to make sure my Mum receives a card on time. The DT have made some beautiful cards this week; they all look incredibly pretty. Mind you, I suppose that is against all the wonderfully manly items we made last week.

I've fallen in love with this rose stamp. I only bought it last Saturday and I've used it on 4 cards already. It's not a new image because it is dated 1994!! Unfortunately, there is no name stamped on the wooden block, just Petaluma, CA and the number G-1180. I can see that this will get a lot of use from me.

Papers: Papermania special effects embossed card, and Scrumptious paper
Rose Stamp, water coloured with glamour dust added
Clare Curd's signature range sentiment stamp (Can't stop using those either at the moment)
Flowers are making memories mini blossoms. The centres are tiny pieces of daisy lace edging
Ribbons and heart candy from my stash

I hope you'll find time to join in the challenge this week.

Sharon xx
