Polka Doodles #10: Mum's The Word

What?! Friday already? Well I'm glad the week is over. It has been a hectic and stressful one. My mailbox (and my conscience) is groaning under the weight of unread messages. My current (and most reasonable to date) goal is to keep it under 300...and save the rest for the weekend.

Ok, enough moaning! Here's the real reason for this post: a brand new Polka Doodles challenge! We're done playing with Sugar and Spice and (oh-my-word!) what gorgeous entries we've had. Tough job ahead for the DT. Picking a winner is not going to be easy. I predict many hours of squabbling among these refined ladies....woo hoo!

Let's see what you can do with this fortnight's theme: Mum's the Word. As the theme suggests, we want you to create a project for your mother or any other special lady in your life... aunt, grandmother, sister, godmother, stepmother, mother-in-law.

My project for this challenge is a commission from my 4 year old goddaughter. She describes her mummy as "soft and cuddly, warm like the sun and prettier than all the flowers in the garden". Tall order, but I found all I needed from various CDs: Bunny and ticket tags from Cherryblossom Lane, background paper from Bonbon Belles, vertical floral panel from Sugar Birdies and the layered blossom from Dolly Daydream Girl Talk.

I think she'll be pleased with the card....I hope!

I'm keeping the design simple. She is only 4 after all... the little girl,
not her mummy! I added the trellis as her mother is a keen gardener and 

thereare quite a few in their yard.

"My mummy is soft and cuddly, warm like the sun and prettier
than all the flowers in the garden". I think this bunny from the
Cherry Blossom Lane CD is  perfect. I coloured her with Promarkers.
and finished her with little dots of Daffodil Liquid Pearls.

I'm leaving the inside blank. The little little girl is quite the chatterbox!
