Theme Thursday – “Orange”

“Use some orange in your artwork” for Theme Thursday this week gave me the shove needed to make MIL a Mother’s Day card! Mothering Sunday is this weekend and I wouldn’t want her to miss out, so here it is!


My MIL is a keen gardener, 88 years old and as haughty as the lady in the image (Little Sheets again!). I think she’ll love this – for the flowers and the image too!

Background paper – Dovecraft; Image from Ten Two Studios.

Meanwhile, I’m making charms for a chunky bracelet or two and cutting out Beach Huts… while I relax in front of the TV. “Flashpoint” is on at 10pm…

The skelly leaves, flowers and gold rubons are all from stash I’ve had quite a while and the slide mount was sent to me by a forum pal on Auntys (thanks Ali!)
