Here I am again...twice in one day...must be some kind of a record for me!
Anyway, I worked on making this special card most of the day yesterday so I would like to share it with you now.
Why so special...a few reasons, actually.
Mainly of course because it's for my Mum's 85th Birthday next week, but also because the top small piece of material looks exactly like that of a dress she bought back in the 50's and still has in her wardrobe. It cost her a whole week's wages then (she was in so much trouble when she got home) ...it is still stunning but it is about a size 10, so not much hope of any of us ever getting into it! She can't bear to part with it although she has considered taking it to some of the "retro" shops, but so far she hasn't and I'm not sure she ever will! Finally, Mum has been tailoring and dressmaking for many years now and still attends a quilting class every second week and is busily making her Christmas panels for the family....I swear we are all running out of wall space to hang them...lol!
This is my humble tribute to a wonderful Mum whose energy at 85 puts me to shame at times and who has a busier social life than I do!
This has been designed in Craft Artist 2 Professional although I exported it to MCS to complete the text as I feel that it is easier to manipulate it there.
The artwork is from Polka Doodles "Piknix" Heavenly Garden cd.
I'd love to know what you think of my first efforts with CA2.
Thanks so much for popping by - Haste ye Back!
