What a week!

Well what a week its been. Sadly my Grandma passed away at aged 89 which was very sad even though we had been expecting it. The to top it off every member in the house succumbed to the bug that seems to be doing the rounds, sickness, sore throat and temperature. So my little one was off school for two days.  Plus the fact I have enjoyed receiving many ETSY and FOLKSY orders for Mother's Day cards.Which all it explains why my my blogging has been non existent!

Unfortunately I couldn't get my DT sample made for The Alphabet Challenge this week, but do go over and join in. This week is C for Celebrate St Patricks Day or Good Luck.

I made this card below a while ago so thought I would share it this week and it is kind of a reminder that Mothers and Grandmothers are precious.

I used a Crafty Individuals image layered onto a card decorated with real lace and mother of pearl buttons.

Challenges I am entering with this card are :
Scrapbook Sisters - Mother's Day
Craft Room Challenge - Shabby / Vintage
Lexi's Creations - Mother's Day
Dream Valley Challenges - Mother's Day
