Til Mor..................

Hi everyone how are you all? I want to say before I start my post today that anyone & everyone affected by the awful typhoon in the Philippines my thoughts are with you. My hubster is at our local Asda at the moment & they are doing a 2 minute silence. The whole world are feeling their pain & everyones hearts go out to them. 

Anyhoo's I'm here today with a vintage card that I have to say I sooooooooo enjoyed making.
Now I think the heading of my post may have you wondering..........well those who only speak english moi lol.
I think 'Til Mor' means 'Mother' or 'For Mother'............(if I am wrong please correct me lol) the papers I have used are called this so the card made itself............well with me at its side for a few hours as well lol.
The gorgeous papers are Pion 'Dresses' from the 'Lil Mor - For Mother' collection, I've had these since last year & cant believe I haven't used them til now. I have edged them with Pumice Stone distress ink & machine stitched them. The top layer I cut out using Spellbinder Grand die Label One.

The tags are also from the same sheet of paper. All the flowers are from WOC & I added white Gesso to them.

The cabochon I made using a free photo & printing it out small & added a plastic dome thing lol, cant remember what they are called as I did a load months ago & they are in one of my embellishment drawers.
The letters saying 'For You Mum' are from a Pion sheet 'Red Clover' & the resin oval is a Melissa Frances 'Vintage Frame'.

The lace is from my stash & I added 'Shabby Seam Binding'. I also added 'Pearl String' amongst the flowers.

The charm I got from LLC & I added a chain to it from my jewellery making stash & added a bit of Shabby White Fran-Tage.

The gorgeous image I got off the internet a long time ago & printed it out on thick Photo card. However I cant remember which site I got it from & I cant even find it on my laptop may of been on my old laptop & maybe missed transferring it. I will keep on looking though to find the link.

Everything has had a dash of gesso here & there & of course inside is decorated to compliment the front. The small cream flowers & the doilies on the front & inside are from LLC. The cream pearls are MF from MCH.

This card will be on my Etsy shop either later today or tomorrow. I've finally plucked up the courage to sell my cards on there. I will put the link in my sidebar when I have done it.

Thanks for stopping by, I have a poorly daughter with a bad cough & I'm also looking after my grandchildren this afternoon for a bit, but I will be round to see you all in between busy times. Last night my Ipad was a I'm catching up on my lappy.

Big hugs mmwah

You are correct about the words, although I might translate them into "for mum", but I guess thats irrelevant. :) I was wondering about the heading though, if they where supposed to be norwegian or if they ment something completely different. ;)

I love your card, the image is so gorgeous, and the little frame and letters you have used are so beautiful. Stunning flowers and lace, I relly lile the two little blue roses. The papers are so pretty, and the sewing and ribbon add the perfect touch! Love the frantage too!

Lots of hugs,
