Happy Mother's Day...

Hello everyone!

Just wanted to stop by today to share with you my creations I made for Mothers Day! This year Mothers Day is obviously slightly different for me! Although my little bundle hasn't arrived yet...she some how still managed to send me a card- what a clever little pickle she is!

So anyway enough of my dribble back to my cards. I had a bit of a spending spree at Pink Petticoat yesterday- for the first time in a while I had no real idea of what I wanted to create. Normally I have some sort of mental image- but I didn't so I ended up purchasing a few new bits and bobs and then have a play around! My first card I made using a Kraft card base and added to it lilac quatrefoil paper which I stitched. I also received my Papertrey Ink order this week which included the lovely stamp set from Maile Belles- Mini Blooms, I couldn't wait to use it. I finished it with the new "Simply Happyness" sentiments from Liz at Pink Petticoat, some adhesive gems and trusty button twine.

For my second card I used my favourite chevron paper in Pink. I made some really sweet felt flowers using Papertrey Inks fab felt- it's great quality and comes it so many colours it's easy to become addicted. I found the die from Tracy at Dies to die for - she does a great range of dies that are tricky to get hold of. I decorated them with some pretty gems and some hand cut leaves. Finally for the sentiment I copied and pasted into word to make it slightly bigger and printed on to Kraft card.

That's all from me today! Hope all you Mummies had a lovely day!

I'll be back soon.
