Guest Bar-Tender and a Freebie

Woohoo, I got selected by Raise the Bar Challenge last week to join them as one of their guest "bar tenders" this week.  I'm so proud to have been selected.

The theme this week is Mother's Day.  For all my UK blogging pals, I know we celebrated Mother's day back in March, but it is celebrated on 13 May over in the US, so we get to create some girlie cards again.  Since I think you can never have too much pink, I'm happy to play along.  However, I cheated a little, because I made my sentiment say 'Special Mother' so it could be used for a birthday card for a mum too!!

The sentiment is a new freebie (see below).

I saw this pink and brown colour scheme used a few days ago and decided to give it a go 'cos I thought it looked gorgeous.  The thin brown ribbon is actually cut out of a brown jumper (you know those annoying little ribbons they put inside the shoulders to supposedly help to hang it neatly on a hanger in the wardrobe, but all they end up doing is poking out from the neckline when you're wearing the top!!). Well, I can't stand them when they do that, so out come the scissors, and voilà !

This card is available to buy on my eBay listings


Card Recipe:

    As promised above, here is my Sentiment freebie that I've used above.  You're free to download it if you like it; click on the image for a larger version, then right click and 'save picture as' to save to your own computer. 

    My conditions are as follows:
    1. Please become a follower, then you will see more freebies as they are posted,
    2. Please leave a comment on this post to let me know you've downloaded it, and
    3. Please don't share my freebies directly with other people, but please send them over to collect it themselves.
    I also adore seeing your creations using my digi sentiments, so I'd really love you to send me an email with links to your creations so I can pop over for a peek!

    I've been inspired by:
    Happy Crafting
