A card for Mum

Good morning and happy weekend!
My first post today is with my DT card for this month's challenge at Crafty Calendar, the theme is Mother's Day or 'for a special female', very topical as it's Mother's Day tomorrow here in the UK.
We're sponsored this month by the wonderful A Day for Daisies and the DT were allowed to choose an image to use....you don't want to know how long it took me to choose mine... have you seen how many of these gorgeous whimsical images there are...and just how many of them would be suitable for this challenge ??!! n the end I settled for this little sweetie, she made me think of my childhood and how I loved to play dress up with my friends and my sister! In those days (!) we didn't have  'bought' costumes from the Disney shop and the like...we dressed up in Mum's clothes...preferably her best ones if we could get our hands on them! We would trail around swathed in dresses that we had to hold up, staggering in high heels many sizes too large, faces smothered with lipstick, thinking we were the bee's knees!
Anyway here is my card for my lovely Mum, I used a template from Sandra's Scrapshop to make the card base and copics to colour my image... it's made with love and happy memories.
Thanks for looking.
