Marlene is hosting today, and the theme she will be judging is For a Special Woman. As Mothers Day (in the UK) is just a couple of weeks away, we would love to see your cards for a Special Woman. So Mother's Day cards/creations, or cards/creations for any woman who is special, Daughter, Wife, Friend etc. will be fine. You can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to just be cards, as long as it meets the challenge, and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule!

I have used an image from Crafts and Me called Rose,  various flowers, Ribbon Bow and Buckle. I love making these type of cards.

I've made a card for my daughter. I used an image and paper from the Bebunni collection from Crafter's Companion. I added a personalised sentiment in Photoshop Elements and finished with a floral frame.

I made this Mother's Day card for the latest Woodware catalogue.
I have used white embossing powder, dye based inks and a little bit of bling.

I made this mixed canvas to honor my grandmother. The picture of her taken behind the wheel of this car was taken in 1916 when she was 16.  The some of the other products I used were gray gesso, old lace, gear dies, alcohol inks, lock, chipboard key, micro beads and chunky silver deep impression enamel

A cas card made especially for a Special Crafty Friend. The sentiment stamp is from Lily of the Valley and was given to me by her.
I'm guessing you will know this is for my mum on her special day . I have used a handmade Masterboard for the background and the dies are by Couture Creations, Tim Holtz, Spellbinders and Memory Box. The stamp is Inkadinkado 'Happy Days'.  

I made this card for my sister using a design from Hunkydory's The Little Book of Patchwork Forest.

This has been made for a Special Lady who is a 80 year old Friend. Image and paper from Joaana Sheen's Jane Shasky CD, Dies are Die'sire from Crafters Companion.

I made this card with a very good friend of mine in mind, who loves colourful flowers. The images are from a stamp set by Lawn Fawn.

I have made a card for a very special friend of mine using this gorgeous die from Stampin Up! and Glimmer Paper.

I made this card for my sweet niece, Bridget's birthday.  She is a beautiful and brave young woman who survived a medical trauma less than two years ago.  I used this adorable image from Sassy Cheryl.

My card was made for a friend's 50th birthday - she loves her shoes so I used a simple stamp coloured with promarkers with just some additional punched flowers and ribbon to make this CAS card.
