Cards for Mum

It's Mum's birthday this month and a couple of days later the annniversary of her marriage. This will be the 3rd anniversary she's been alone but I still send a card to recognise the day and let her know we are thinking about her.

 Simpy stamped and coloured with Promarkers this cute little lady is layered up onto mustard coloured card with 2 strips of toning ribbon.
This is still one of my favourite stamps and since owning my own i've used it in many colourways.

Much more challenging is this Michael Powell stamp, again coloured with promarkers but in softer shades vaguely following the colour on the front of the stamp as a guide to shading etc.
 I think the pale green border just brings out the colours a bit more.
The photos look a bit washed out due to the poor light today but I wanted to get some cards on here as opposed to all the knitting and beading.
