Stitching, Pins and Buttons Oh My!!! Creative Belli Challenge # 114

Morning!  I woke up this morning and thought it was Thursday!  Wishful thinking on my part I think.! I did have a brilliant day yesterday at work, the children got to make Mothers day cards and some of the sentiments that they wrote were so sweet.  The girls were along the lines of "To my Princess Mummy" from your Princess Daughter..  Just so sweet.  Anyway enough of my rambling.  

  Its time for our fortnightly challenge over on
and the theme for this fortnight is......
Anything to do with sowing (stitching, buttons, pins etc).  The challenge will run from today until Wednesday 13th April. 

This is another stamp  I've had for a while and just haven't had the time to ink it up.  I have fallen in love with these cute little stamps from Hanglar and Stanglar.  She looks so good in shades of brown.  So pleased at the end result and even tried my hand at shading around my image, this I also find difficult as I find it always looks messy.  Its Mothers Day here in the UK on Sunday and I made this with my Mum in mind.
