Happy Mothers' Day to all you Mums out there.
I have made a little card for a friend's MuM, since I don't have a Mum now.
I made the card using a freebie image from BIRDIE BROWN (can't find her shop for stamps etc. Her Etsy doesn't seem to have them ).
This stamp was called 'Dreamin'.

I paper pieced the images and then stitched the topper onto some matching papers.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day. xx

Challenges I am entering:

CAS on Sunday Challenge #30 - Stitching Faux or Real
Dream Valley Challenge #78 - Mothering Sunday
Eclectic Ellapu - Wings Challenge
