Mother may I ...


Hello and good morning to you ...
Today Cheryl is hosting for us at City Crafter Challenge and has asked that we create a card / project which includes the word Mother or similar (Mom, Mum, Madre etc.,) ... as you know we have already had Mother's Day here in the UK but lots of you will be making your cards and gifts in preparation for your Mother's Day ... so it's a great challenge ...
I chose to make a wall hanging ... using one of my all time favourite photos of my Mum with her first born son ... I never knew my big brother ... he died at 7 months ...  


I think my Mum looks so pretty in this photo ... reminds me of a film star ... hence I chose to use  Websters Pages Hollywood Vogue paper ...



I used ply board for my base which I painted it first,  then added the paper ... adhered some lace to the bottom and sewed on some little crystals ... all the embellishments are from my stash ... the little pin is a handmade gift from sweet Stella  I used a small scrap of Tim Holtz paper to mount my photo too.



Now it's over to you ... please come and join us this week ... if you are looking for more inspiration ... please hop over to the blog  ... see you there!

Have a wonderful day ...

You couldn't have given your mum a great tribute than this Ros, this picture must be so extremely precious to you, your mum looks so happy and pretty. To think that she had to bear her big loss must have grieved her enormously. I love your homage to your mother, Ira x
