Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Gosh I sure hope you're sat down with a nice cuppa & a biscuit just now as there are lots of pictures in this posting.. and I'm not kidding!

Well the challenge this week over at Daring Cardmakers is something for Mum...
Hell did I not just forget that it is Mothers Day this weekend in America so needless to say that my Mother In Law will be late in receiving her card... I do know that she will forgive me though due to all the crap that has been happening of late.
Needless to say I now feel like the worst DIL in the world so had to make something extra special for her to treasure. You see she is one of those people who truly appreciates the time & effort that is put into her cards & she keeps every single one I ever send...
Alas, what better to make for her than a word book and here it is..
This is the first real embellished word book that I've made & I'm quite proud of it for my first attempt & sure am looking forward to doing many more in future.. thanks must go to Anice at Funky Hand for taking all the hard work out of it though.

Now basically as I was finishing off I realised I had boobed... what had I done... only just made the book to say MUM instead of MOM.. oh well never mind, these things happen & I'm not about to change it now.
Word book, papers & letters all from Funky Hand

Oh wow Lorraine, your book is absolutely stunning.
I’m sure your MIL will forgive you for it being late and the mis-spelling when she sees all the love and hard work that went into making it.
It’s beautiful.

Love the Funky Hand papers too!
