Mum's The Word @ Oldie But Goodie!

Good Morning lovely bloggers, or should I say not so good as the weather has gone mad again here! Surely all this rain should help with the drought they were talking about last week!

It's time for a brand new challenge today at 
and it's little old me that's hosting this week!
I decided to be organised (for the first time in my life) and make sure my card was ready for that Special Lady in my life in plenty of time! So this week...

Mum's The Word

I'm thinking Mothers Day but there's no reason you can't use a birthday card for your Mum too.

Now my Mother has a good sense of humour (she had to after having me!) so this Stella from sponsor Bugaboo was an ideal choice, and I added my own sentiment to the inside
Sorry about the grey picture of the inside, even Photoshop couldn't brighten this up yesterday! I'm lovin' these spots and stripes 6x6 pads from Echo Park, regular visitors will be fed up with them I'm sure!
I have to use them at least once a week lol
About 18 months ago I had to make lots of menu's and place cards for a function using red roses and as usual for me I bought far too many and these are left over from then.  

We have a fabulous sponsor

They are giving the winner

 I was lucky enough to win a challenge sponsored by Bugaboo the other week and I could have chosen a hundred stamps - they are all so much fun!

Head over to the main challenge blog for some more inspiration from the DT.

Remember the new rules state you can use a digital image but don't forget to tell us what is old that you have used on your card.
Thanks for lookingLove 'n' Hugs
