Crafty Calendar Monthly Challenge Card - April Showers/Springtime

Morning everyone.  Hope you are all okay on this April fools day.  It's the first Saturday in the month so we have a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar.

The theme for this month is
April Showers or Springtime.

For my card I have used:
Drops of Love digi stamp from Miss Daisy Stamps coloured with copics.
I created the background using watercolour markers in a range of blues and pinks and copious amounts of water - this was the first time I have done this technique and ended up with a background that I was sort of pleased with I normally I throw the end result away...

We are sponsored for this challenge by:

Pop over to Crafty Calendar and share you April Showers or Springtime projects and check out the gorgeous DT creations.

Just a short post this month, my card for this challenge is a little bit melancholy which represents my mood because sadly my wonderful mom passed away last month and I'm heartbroken.
She was diagnosed with cancer in February and she sadly passed away the 20th March.
Love and miss you forever mom x

Me and my mom in Bath at Christmas x

Dear Bev. I am sorry to hear of your loss with your Mom. My condolences to you and your family. The picture of the two of you is lovely. May you be comforted as you continue without her.

Thank you for creating a card, especially in such a difficult time in your life. Your card is beautiful. You did a fabulous job with the watercolour background. It's absolutely gorgeous. The colours, the stitching, your layout, all of it is so very pretty, sweet and beautiful.

It would be lovely if you were up to sharing it with us at Miss Daisy Stamps Create & Share Facebook Group here: Your card may also be entered into our new challenge for prizes. Thank you for the opportunity to sponsor for you. Happy Stamping! Love, Miss Daisy
