For Mum - and CAS-ual Fridays!


How was everyone's weekend? I hope all you mums had a lovely day yesterday!

I know it's slightly belated but I wanted to share with you the three cards I made for that special day! All three are completely different styles! Bear with me there are quite a few pictures!

So let's start with the for my mum!

I have completely fallen in love with PTI's Alpha die cuts, they are so versatile and easy to use! I'd had this image in my head for ages and it was so nice to see it come to life! It's so CAS and says exactly what it needed to say!

Next up was a card for my Grandma!

Another thing I have completely fallen for from PTI is Raspberry Fizz! I love everything about it- it's brightness and it's ability to brighten up any card! I used it twice on this card- for the fillable frame (so glad I have these in my life) and the gorgeous "In Bloom" paper! (doesn't kraft and raspberry fizz go well together!) Although my favourite thing about this card is the cute flowers!

Last but not least the card I had the most trouble with! It has been my biggest problem for the last week! I ordered the PTI garden variety set after seeing the design team revisiting it a couple of weeks ago and loved everything about it but I struggled so much placing it together- but after hours of playing around I think I cracked it! :) I paired it with the amazing new "chevron" colour collection set from Pink Petticoat (Liz, you are a genius!) I added some quirky stitching and a sentiment banner!

I like the outcome so much I'm entering it into this weeks CAS-ual Fridays blog challenge!

That's it from me tonight folks- hope you've enjoyed having a catch up! Please feel free to leave comments I do love to read them all :)

Take Care

  1. These are such lovely cards. well done Hugs Elaine

  2. Your cards always have lovely clean lines which appeals to me. Your Mum and Grandma should be suitably impressed, I do hope they enjoyed their day. I particularly like the watering can one though. Something extra special about it that I like. Good luck with the challenge.
