Mothers Day with the Dragonflies

With Mothers Day coming up soon in Australia this is the theme Hilde has chosen for the Dragonflies this week. We celebrated Mothers Day in March so long gone for us but you can celebrate Mothers anytime of the year as there's always a reason to send your Mum or a special lady in your life a cheery card.

We have two generous sponsors for this challenge:

1. Heather Ellis who has generously supplied a prize of 3 digis

2. Meljen with a generous prize of 4 digis

I was lucky enough to play with one of Meljens digis Victoran Shoe.

I really had fun with this. I decided to enlarge it and make it into a free standing shaped's got a little stand attached to the back. I cut it out then paper pieced it. I added string and buttons in matching colours. Then I coloured the ivy leaves with bright green sharpy fine line pens.. I twisted wire and string around the boot and added the leaves. I finished off with a gold peel off on the heel and faux stitching on the toe. A tag with Mum was added and hung from the top button.

So get yourself a large mug of coffee and pop over to visit the dragonflies and be inspired by the rest of the DT's creations.
Have fun!!
