INKspired Blog Hop

10 May 2015

Welcome to our team INKspired Blog Hop. 
You may have just hoped here from my beautiful and talented friend Lissa

Our upline Teneale Williams creates our sketch challenges and I found this weeks a bit tricky, as I just don't cope with things not centred! I did actually have it centred, however I managed to stay true to the sketch as much as I could and moved the main image to the right. I was quite proud of myself! 

Today is Mother's Day and I am so blessed to have such an awesome, inspiring and beautiful Mum.
 My Mum enjoys many crafts, however her true passion is quilting and patchwork. I wanted to create a card that represented her love of patchwork and used The Six Sided Sampler.

I was also inspired by a quilt Mum is currently working on, where she hand sews these adorable hexagon appliqu├ęd flowers.

Next on the hop is my lovely team member Marlene, using another favourite stamp set, Butterfly Basics. 

 Happy Mother's Day Mum, I love you to the moon and back. 

Thanks for hopping by,
