I thought I would try to 'kill three birds with one stone' here and as well as making a card for my Mum's birthday on Sunday I've entered it for two challenges as well. Rather pleased with myself for that! The Copics for the challenge were Yellow, Pink and a colour called Leather - a browny shade and I wouldn't have thought to use them together but I really like Leanne Ellis's stamp in these colours. The Next Level challenge - their first one - was to make a card with an aperture and also make and decorate it with a Lollipop Flower - never made one before and I'm happy with the way it turned out. The sentiments are Papertrey and the papers Stampin Up.
And here is Mum's very unglamorous birthday present - a peg bag and pegs! As I've said before, she doesn't need anything and doesn't want anything but her pegs have seen better days and she uses the little washing line outside the back door often. So I thought I'd get her some of these colourful pegs from the wonderful Lakeland store in Chester and they match the colour of the fabric I used for the bag. I made the pattern up myself from a photo I saw in a magazine. I hope she'll like it.
