My Time to Craft Challenge

The theme this week at My Time to Craft is 'Woman'. I decided to take this opportunity to make my Mum's Mother's Day card!

I went for a vintage feel as my Mum loves this look, but I also added a modern twist too with the Doodlebug Alphabet stamps and the baby pink button, I like this mix!

The stamp is an old one from my stash, I stamped her with brown Versa Fine and then did a bit of colouring with distress inks and then went over it with 3D Glaze.


I've not been doing much crafting this week so I haven't got anything else to show... but talking of shows, I'm looking forward to going to the NEC on Sunday!! I'm sure there will be lots to temp me as always!!


Until next time!


Love Becky xx
