Dancing With Grandma

I don't know how Mo did it.
 But she managed to create a series of digis around
a certain character she calls "Mummu". Folks, this is my mum. Seriously. Well, not really, but it may as well be. She has recreated my mum down to the fluffy skirts and wispy grey braid. ( I would give you a side by side but not sure how my mum would like being in blogland for all to see. We'll work on it.:-)
My mum is the kind of mum who still splashes in mud puddles. And goes out in the snow with bare feet. And talks to the spiders in the house. (yes, they are as pets. No one must touch them . Some have names. I remember distinctly a rather large unfriendly looking black spider that lived in the bathroom by the name of Harry) I digress.....

Here is my recipe:
Ribbon: Offray
Colors: Graphitint, Prismacolors and Copics

And a close up or two:

and the sentiment :
"You make me smile all over my face"

This card fits the following challenges:
DP2: Little Girls
Color Throwdown: color recipe

I hope this happy image has brought a smile to your weekend. :-) Thanks for visiting.

Hi dorcas, love your mummu card. I always allow one spider to stay in the house and name him Boris. This isn't because i like spiders so much (or at all) but because they eat the woodlice which i dislike to my very core lol.
