Fab'n'Funky Challenges new challenge today

Hi blog friends

Its Wednesday so that means a new challenge at Fab'n'Funky challenges.  This week the theme is

In Honour of Mum
We are lucky enough to be sponsored by the fabulous Doodle Pantry  this week



The DT girls were given some gorgeous digis to play with.  I chose  these cute little birds  and a sentiment to use on my card and this was my Mums mothers day card - which she loved.  I also made her a small scrapbook of some of our old black and white family photos.  She had given them all to me when she moved to a smaller bungalow a few years ago, but we had them out a few weeks ago (trying to decide who our new baby grandson looked like - like you do!) and she seemed to really enjoy them so that's when I decided to make the scrapbook as a mothers day gift.   It took me days of scanning and resizing them to get them all ready to go into the scrapbook.  It was lovely when it was finished and she really liked having her old photos newly printed and all in one place and looking a good deal better than the originals did! - these photo programs are so clever, it even made me look clever as well ha ha.


This is what I did....

Stamp - everyday birdies from Doodle Pantry
Coloured with - Copics and Prismacolor pencils
Papers - from my stash (could be from Kanban I think)
Button punch - Martha Stewart
Daffodils - Wild orchid crafts
craft card basket distressed with Tim Holtz tea die distress ink
Basket - die cut on cricut expression - Paperdolls for everyday cartridge


Well Thats all from me for now - going to try to get what should have been my last nights post done later today - had a bit of a dizzy blonde moment last night (I have a few of these but this one was pretty good!)  I'll update you later if I get through today in one piece - off birthday shopping with my daughter at Gateshead Metro Centre now - this its going to be expensive I can tell, as well as her birthday its her husbands birthday and wedding anniversary all on the same day!
