Card Patterns Sketch #5

My New Zealand blogging friend Sonya (Pickles Patch blog) told me about the Card Patterns blog, they have a new challenge sketch each week - Sonya is on the Design Team there! I had some new toys to play with today, so thought I'd give Sketch #5 a go.


My new toys are some Justrite Stampers - I've been eyeing these off on many of the US blogs and really wanting some, but they were way too expensive to buy from here with our crappy dollar right now.......but, then I found an online store here in Melbourne who would order just what I wanted at a reasonable price, so HAD to buy them!

I used the Justrite Stampers to spell out 'Mum' and used one of the borders from my set. The pretty pink paper is by Christina Re designs. Sadly, I no longer make Mother's Day cards for my own Mum as she died 2 years ago..........she would've loved this card though!
