Mothers Day card

This is my Mothers Day card ! So after trying so hard to not use flowers I really went for it this time !!!! It was hard to photograph tho !!

I used my Cricut to make the card shape. I welded together two hearts from the Wedding cartridge and folded !! Using two more heart shapes to cover the ribbon work at the back of the top and bottom. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, butterflies from The Range and the bling I found in my box by fluke !!!

I am entering this into the following challenge :

My Time to Craft where Mum is the word. It is my Mothers Day card but I tried putting words on it and it looked like a funeral wreath !

Hope you like it, Happy crafting !

The image is from Lili of the Valley which I glittered up, the tags are cut using Sentimentals cricut cartridge and the message is Lili of the Valleys new Friendship recipe stamp !!! Loving it !!! I also used a Marianne Die behind the image and a Martha Stewart punch for the border !!! Papers are from Nitwits, I was so thrilled it matches the colour of the girl image so well !!

A bit of bling and it will be in the post for my friend !

Forever Friends Monthly Challenge

First of all I would like to say hello to those of you who have just joined me !!! Thank you for popping in to see my creations. I love blog hopping and seeing what great work we all do !!

This months challenge over at the Forever Friends Challenge blog is NO DESIGN PAPERS !!! What a fantastic challenge !! I hadn't realised until I saw this just how much I have come to rely on patterened papers !! So .............. I chose a design off my Forever Friends CD and printed it off. I used a Martha Stewart punch across the middle and got out my glitzy butterflies I found at The Range. The flowers are from K&Company called Wild Raspberry. The Sentiment I also found at The Range by Anita's; 6 in a pack for 25p !!!! BARGAIN !!!

I just love the clean look and no papers really allow the glitz of the butterflies and flowers to pop !! Hope you like it too, this may just end up as my Grandmas Mothers Day card !

Flower girl card

Well I have just spent the last hour looking for the make of this stamp and I cant find it !!!!!!! So anyone know please tell me !!!! I think its either a Sugar Nellie or Stampavie but ............. Any way I started to make it for my daughters 10th birthday but couldnt find blue card that I liked until yesterday............ typically a week late for her birthday !!!!

I used papers from Nitwits (heavenly), flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, a Martha Stewart punch for the leaves and promarkers for the colouring !!! I glittered up the ribbon and flowers and her top, the picture doesnt do it justice I am afraid tho. I just love how it turned out maybe I will keep it for her birthday next year and be ahead of myself !!!
Mmm who am I kidding !!! hehe !!!
Have a great day crafting !!!
