Traditions In a Foreign Land

Hello.  Welcome.  We have already celebrated two Mother's Day's this year, one for Norway and one for the UK.  It seems tomorrow it's the turn of America.  So Happy Mothers Day to mums in America, and Happy Day to everyone else. 

I used Bazzill cardstock for my base card and added a layer of Docraft patterned paper cut with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die.  I cut some strips of candy stripe pink paper that had cute little glitter dots on it.  I cut the aperture and added Curious Corrin.  I have stamped her on patterned paper and, looking at her now, she looks a bit like she has a strange skin complaint.  Ah well.....  The sentiment is a Unity stamp.

  5. Oh, you made me LOL with the 'strange skin complaint' be honest, I hadn't thought of that 'til you said! She's COOL, man! And we hold Mother's Day here in Australia today, too. You'd think with the world being a Global Village they could organise their celebrations to co-incide....oh, hang on! Probably the choc/flower/card industries LIKE them separate. More chance of selling stuff all year round!!! Cynical me;)

  14. Too funny, I assumed she was a character from a Sci-Fi book or TV show that I had caught up with yet. She'd fit right in on "Firefly." DH would love it. Thanks so much for sharing with us on MFP's Speedy Fox and Friends.
