k1 s1 psso.....

Here is a photo of my Mum (sorry it's such a bad photo, I took it on my old phone) - she will be 88 years old very soon and is disabled and housebound. Her two great loves, that she can still enjoy, are cats and  knitting (don't tell her the penguins already have enough jumpers, she's so happy knitting them I haven't the heart to stop her!)

I found the perfect image for her on the new CD from La Pashe, Flippin' Families. In the first picture, the old lady is happily knitting  away, cats playing contentedly by her feet. But in the second, chaos has broken out as the cats have discovered the yarn and are playing with it. I just love the realistic cabled knitting on the background paper I've used with the first image.

I used the "Stackables" from the CD for the circular images, but on the second one  I didn't actually stack it, just used the base image to enable the card to close properly. As well  as the images, the patterned papers and the sentiment are all from the CD.

I'm playing along with
The CD Sunday challenge - Going around in circles
The Cupboard trilogy #20 - Mothers
Make My Monday - For Mums
This will also be my DT card for the blog at La Pashe later on this week.
