DCM - Daffodils!

Mothers Day for me meant more crafting time.  No cooking or washing up for a whole day, and plenty of tea in my mothers day pressie! 
All that time and just one card made. Why doesn't a simple card mean a quick card? I spent hours on this!


Although lets face it I'm no Jennifer McGuire but I was determined to use this stamp, bought about 5 months ago and never inked! I tried to get clever with the versamark and resist techniques and just made an unsightly mess - mainly on the versamark inkpad. 1st lesson in stamping learnt - clean stamp properly !.....

I'm entering this card in this week's DCM challenge, set by my very lovely blogging buddy Lynda.
