Mother's Day set - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello everyone... I'm a bit later with this post than I'd planned - had a bit of a panic when the laptop decided it had fallen out with the camera and was completely ignoring it!  Had to happen when the resident computer geek (hubby) isn't here... Finally gave in and tried a restart and it worked... phew!

I've used one of the older images from DigiStamp Boutique for today's card, it's from the Mother's Day Set but it can be used for anything really, and I find it very useful for those more 'grown up' birthdays.

Items Used
Scallop edge card blank - Craftwork Cards
Digi stamp - Mother's Day Set - DigiStamp Boutique
Papers - Promises - LOTV
Sentiment tag stamp - LOTV
Go Kreate large circle dies
Lil Inkers small bow die
Brad - The Hobby House
Viva Decor Pearl Pens in Light Green & Ice White - MCH

I had one of those unpleasant phone calls from school today - Morgan had been punched in the mouth by another child, so hard that it made the inside of his mouth bleed :(  He was very upset obviously, he's got a graze on his lip, and a big cut on the inside of his lip... it's going to be swollen tomorrow!  All over a basketball game apparently... aren't there some delightful children around?!

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Poor Morgan, hope he is OK - I work in a school and am amazed what some kids do and say - but they never get away with it, as I am sure the boy who did this won't either! Love your card Lisa, gorgeous image and papers and love the colours. Have a lovely evening. Hugs, Claire x
