It is the first of the month of May today. I can't believe how fast time is flying when it is spring and we have days as warm as summer almost already. It's time for the first of two posts today and time for another challenge over at The East Wind!
We have a lovely new challenge today and since it is the first of the month there is also a new freebie involved in this! I'll add a little expplatation here. The first of the month, subscribers to Unky's newsletter receive a free image which the DT also play with. This month's freebie is called Love Mum and you can get her when you sign up to the newsletter in the sidebar at our challenge blog!!
My project is this lovely card dedicated to my mum who unfortunately passed away in 2007 due to breast cancer. Not a day goes by when I am not thinking of you
Our challenge theme today is diecuts or punch so grab those dies or punches and make us a sweet little project pretty please. Remember you don't need to use a The East Wind image but we certainly would love to see them!!
