Another Mother's Day Card....


It's about time I posted some more of my cards on here! I'm falling well behind - I've made plenty but I never seem to have the time to post them on my blog at the moment.... All busy, busy, busy :-)

This is another Mother's Day card - this one is for Paul's Mom, soon to be my Mother-in-law (and I couldn't ask for a nice one either!). I've used my lovely new LOTV stamp (thank you, Clare!) and my lovely new Joys Crafts heart die. Lucky me :-)

A close up of the image.....

I did the "Mum" bit by sponging some blue ink through the outline left by a peel off!

I also used:
Papers - Papermania Summer bloom
Xcut lace trim border punch
Heart die - Joy crafts
Ribbon and scrim from stash

The ABC Challenge - K for Kraft
Simon says Stamp - Mother's Day
Lili's Little Fairies - Ribbon and lace (hope lace trim border punch counts!)
Crafty ribbons - Celebrate your Mum
Charisma Cardz - Ribbon ribbon ribbon
A Gem of a Challenge - Perfect pastels
Stampin' for the Weekend - Photo inspiration:

Sketch n stash - Fab sketch: (Oooops! Missed the deadline!)

Right, that's me for now. Back again when I get five minutes to myself :-)

Love 'n' hugs,
