Happy Mother's Day!

Hi everyone and wishing you all a happy Mother's Day. I didn't get the sleep in (hey a 2 year old) but got lovely pressies in bed this morning and now they are just cooking me breakfast (thankfully with hubby's help). Spoilt! Here is the card I made for my mum.

I used this weeks sketch from Taylored Expressions seen here TECC67. Stamps: Love Owl-ways (retired), Wonderful Favourites, So Many Sayings (retired); Paper: Ruby Red, Whisper White and some unknown DP I found in my box of tricks; Ink: Staz-On Black, Chocolate Chip; Accessories: Choc Chip Taffeta Ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, Brads, Paper Piercer and Template, Markers. I paper pierced the heart in the same DP I used for the background. I hope mum likes it - I'm sure she will!

This is the card I also made last night for my Grandmother. It started out with no butterflies but accidently dropped it onto my ink pad (must remember to shut them) and needed to cover the whoopsy. Wasn't going to start again after colouring and cutting out that flower I can tell you!

I used: Stamps: Bloomin with Beauty, Wonderful Favourites; Paper: Very Vanilla, Riding Hood Red, Unknown Blue DP from my stash, Watercolour Paper; Ink: Staz-On Black, Riding Hood Red; Accessories: Brads, Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Markers & Blender Pen, Butterfly Punch (I pinched if from Laurel!).

One more thing to show you - this is the card Laurel made for me from her and Oscar for today. Guy helped a bit but I think they did a great job! Potential for a future SU Demo there?

Will leave you in peace now as my brekky is ready. Have a great day.
