Mother's Day

Hi everyone, what a busy week last week was and I think this next one will be a little busier... definitely makes the time go quick.

I made the top card for my wonderful Mum for Mum's day.  A little while ago I saw somebody had put card stock on their card on an angle and I really liked the effect so gave it a try here.  The yellow handmade paper I have had in my stash for a long time now.  I topped with these beautiful 3D paper tole kingfishers from Blue Edge Crafts.  I then punched some light blue and gold flowers and attached with my new bottle of Dimensional Magic.  So nice to have flowing glue. :-)  The gold 'Happy and day' are die cut with my new Elizabeth Craft 'Happy Birthday' die.  I was really impressed at how easily and cleanly it cut.  My first word die. :-)

This is the card I made for my Mother-in-Law.  I have had this wonderful sticker in my collection for a while now and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to put it to good use.  I attached the flower sections of the sticker to acetate and cut them out and then layered them up adding the bling centre.  Added some die cute corners from my Marvellous Squares die and printed out the Happy Mother's Day sentiment.

I wish both Mum's a beautiful day and hope they are spoilt.

Happy Mother's day to all Mum's out there.
