Blooming Corner Birthday Card - Mum

I can't believe it but this is my 100th post. I've not really done any writing since I left school but I must admit I'm really enjoying being a blogger.

I'd like to start by congratulating Dawn Lawson, the winner of the first Clarity Stamp Challenge. I hope you enjoy spending your £50 prize. The entries were all so good and was a really hard task choosing our Top 5. In the end we picked Julie Owens, Linda Barton, Chris Hearn, Lin Henson, and Sally Newick. Congratulations ladies, your cards are all stunners.

The Blooming Corner set from Lesson 6 last year was one of my favourites. I loved how Barbara taught us to colour the flowers in and make the skep. I sent my skep card to my Mum for her birthday so I wanted to think of something different to send in to Create and Craft for my homework. I ended up writing my name, LYNNE. The cards can be seen at the bottom of this post or you can read my original post about them here.

Anyway, as I mentioned before, as soon as I'd done LYNNE I realised that it would have been so much nicer to write MUM.

Well, I finally got around to making it for my Mother-in-Law's birthday and I was really pleased with how it turned out.

MUM is stamped in second generation Adirondack Espresso ink and it is coloured in with my ProMarkers.

Stamps Used
Happy Birthday and the sentiment at the bottom are by Chocolate Baroque.

There's only 3 more days until term starts again with Lesson 15 on at 11am on Saturday 6th April. I don't know about you, but I'm getting excited!
