Another Mother's Day Card

So now I've made two Mother's Day cards and I can't decide which one to give my mum. I prefer the last one but I have a feeling Mum may prefer this one. Decisions...decisions.....

I was going for Springtime here in case you hadn't guessed. Decoupaged daffs in an embossed frame with pearl accents.

Ta for the visit,

White +1

Here's my entry for the Wild Orchid Challenge, White+1.

At least some of the flowers are from Wild Orchid and I think the pearls may be too. The image is an LOTV stamp and the sentiment is SU. The pearly butterfly is from Hobbycraft.

Ahead of Myself

Getting ahead of myself now....I've made my mum's Mother's Day card as I thought I wouldn't have time nearer the day. Not even sure when it is to be honest!!!!

I've used the SU Manhattan Flower embossing folder again but turned it over and glittered in the spaces. Card and ribbon are also SU, the card being the no-longer-available Taken With Teal which I'm so glad I stocked up on.

Thanks for looking,

5.00 a.m. Creation

Yes, I made these at 5.00 am this morning when I couldn't sleep. It brought back memories of crafting through the night, when I was having hospital treatment and couldn't sleep. It's actually a very peaceful time to craft, except for the police helicopter hovering around, that is!

They're both made using the SU Manhattan Flower embossing folder which as you can see I embossed 3 times, cut out and decoupaged. I then used Stickles to outline.
The card, ribbon and sentiments are mostly SU.

Thanks for looking,

From A Great Aunt

That's not to say I'm good at being an aunt, just that I now have a great Nephew! So here's  the card I made for the proud parents to welcome his arrival yesterday.

I don't know how I ever managed to make cards without those LOTV squares! They're so handy.

 I decided I was quite pleased with the card I made for the LIM challenge and so I made some more.

I used Stickles instead of gems this time (I know - I'm a cheapskate!) and also added the peel off borders.

Thanks for popping by,

LIM 55

A card for the LIM 55 Challenge - Punches or Die Cuts.

The stamps were SU and Martha Stewart punch and stamp and the ribbon is  SU.

Thanks for looking,

I made a card!!!!!

Woohoo - I made a card - my first one for ages!
This is a card my mum asked me to make for my niece who is about to have her baby any day soon. Obviously she knows it's a boy!

Those LOTV squares came in handy again. The card, paper and ribbon is SU and Candi is courtesy of Craftwork Cards.

Back soon,
