A crafternoon with mum

Hello there - well I hope you're not snowed in - we had snow flurries yesterday but nothing too drastic - it didn't stop us getting most bits sorted at school on our parents help day!

This morning I've got to go to church - it was thinking day on Friday - and so we will be on parade at the church this morning - guides, brownies and rainbows. I must put my thermals on as its always freezing in church!!

Today's card was made on a crafternoon with my mum on Thursday - it was all a bit rushed but I got there in the end. Its not for any reasons other than just because!

I found this very tricky to photograph because of all the mirri board - but I did my best! The image is, of course, saturated canary - she's usually by a branch with a birdie but I've cut that off. The papersare Kanban and the colouring is with promarkers. I've used a spellbinders die to cut the oval and followed a sketch at MAWTT. The flowers are WOC.
