Spring continues at Make My Monday

I love these bright mornings, it makes things so much nicer than getting up to dull grey skies.  I have two unhappy furbabies today, as they have been for a wash and brush up at the groomer and have decided they they don't like each other any more and have been fighting all over the house!

At  Make My Monday  we are continuing with our Spring theme, and we want to see cards for Mother's Day or Thank You cards.  There are some fabulous DT projects for inspiration on the challenge blog so please do pop across and join in with us.

My card is a Thank you card, as sadly I lost my mother in 1994, and then a year later my mother in law.  I decided to go CAS having messed up two cards along the way, one of which I was really annoyed about because I dropped an inked stamp on to my beautiful disress background all pretty with roses, and there it was - black ink right on the edge so I could not salvage it for what I had planned.  However, it has gone in my scraps box for future use.

I have used a music stamp across the centre of the card, and then overstamped with some leaves from a Wendy Vecchi set.  The sentiment is SU. All the ink is Adirondack Slate.  I like the pinky grey colour of it.  I then die cut a flowers and put it together with a pearl brad.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Less is More - Use script - mine is music script so hope it counts

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you. Hugs,
