A Special Mum

Hi everyone
For those of you in the UK this weekend brings Mothering Sunday. It's the time that those of you who are mums should get spoilt rotten.
So this weeks challenge at Crafts4eternity is
So for this challenge I dusted off one of my many boxes, drawers etc of designer papers, I can't remember when I last used any of these, and made my mum a card using the fabulous "Girlfriend" stamps form Art Impressions. The set I have used for this one is "Beauty in Progress".
I have coloured the images using distress markers as watercolour paints by first scribbling the colour onto a white tile and applying with a waterbrush (I still haven't mastered using these pens directly onto the paper) and some finishing shading with Prismacolour pencils.
My mum loves these girls and don't tell her but I think the one on the end wearing the glasses looks a bit like her!!
So why not come over and join us this week with your "Special Mum" make.
One randomly chosen winner will recieve a $10 voucher to spend at Digi Stamps 4 Joy, this weeks sponsor.
I would also like to enter this into
 Art Impressions Challenge where the challenge is "Getting Girly".
I hope that you all have a lovely Mothers Day
See you soon
