Moving Along With The Times 'For A Special Lady' Challenge

Good morning all, can you believe this wonderful weather we are having it really does feel like spring.
 I am really pleased to tell you all that I have joined the design team along with some other fabulous ladies at Moving Along With The Times Challenge Blog so thank you team for having me join you.
So this week we have the challenge of 'For A Special Lady' and are being sponsored by Stitchy Bear Stamps who generously gave us some images to play with. For my first Moving Along project I have used 'Flowers For Mom' and coloured it with Promarkers & Flexmarkers.
Do you like my heart border? I cut it using 2 different sets from the new Spellbinders Edgeabilities die's, I love the scope you get with being able to mix and match the sets and you don't only have to use them as borders. My hubby brought me 4 sets for my birthday which isn't until next week but they arrived and I managed to nab them before he saw lol, at this rate I won't have anything to open on the day!

Sorry my photo is a little blurry my hands are still a bit shaky.
