Hip and trendy...

...or at least that is what I`m aiming for.

Good afternoon All, I said yesterday that todays cards were going to be a little bit different. Whereas yesterdays Mum card was a bit twee and, in my opinion, aimed at older mums, todays will hopefully appeal to the younger mums out there.
We`ve been looking at wallpaper for our bedroom and while the colours I`ve used today are nothing like what`s going on our walls, I couldn`t help but notice the "in trend" colours for home decor. So that`s what I`ve gone with.

As you can see I`ve used the Brocade DP from Pink Petticoat again (love this paper) in Plum, Sassy and Pistachio.
The flowers are all made with tissue paper (Poundland) cut out with a nestie scallop circle die and scrunched.
The sentiment is computer generated and I`ve added some gem stones to finish.

Up here in my corner of the UK we tend to say Mam for Mother although Mum is creeping in more and more .As these are all for the fundraising box and the market I`m aiming at is more likely to say mam I thought I`d use it.

Ofcourse I could have got it all wrong and the truely hip and trendy will think they`re a bit naff but I won`t know until I try will I ?

The weather here today is awful. Strong winds and heavy showers and it`s sooo cold. More like february than may. I hope we`re going to get a heatwave in June or I might go into hibernation.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
