My Besties UK Challenge & Blog Hop - For Mum

Today we have a new challenge and blog hop launching today at MY BESTIES UK and this time its in the theme of  FOR MUM.... or as we say around here 'For Mam'

This little cutie was my inspiration - I thought she'd look adorable peeping out through a bouquet of flowers. Coloured with watercolour pencils, a little glitter added to the tip of her wings for a bit of glamour

I mounted her on a coffee stirrer and put her in among a half dozen tulips contained in a watercan 
 Not sure where got the template  for the watering can as it was hidden among the files on the laptop. To make the tulips I found a very easy to follow tutorial on line and have added the link :

Each side of the watering can has a different added detail including layered up flowers that were made from a combination of punches and dies and no project would be complete without a bow and a butterfly

If you are hopping with us then please follow the hop links below to continue with the next project.
We have 
5 digis on offer as a prize so to be eligible you need to hop and comment on all the participants blogs. You will be sent 5 halloween related digis as your prize.
