Oh boy what a busy time I have had making Mother's Day cards. It is great that people like them but they all want similar but different and I have been racking my brains this past week for ideas. Well finally completed my last one and glad it is all over. Here are some of the last ones
The card is from Creative Expressions and my local craft shop.
The dies are Spellbinders Floral Ovals, Grand Decorative Circles One, Rose Creation. Labels Twenty and foliage.
Other flowers are from Wild Orchid.
Gem, feathers, butterflies and pearls from stash.
I have started making stick pins and have added one to each card.
The birdcage was a free cut out from Cricut.
The shaped cards and boxes (not shown) from Stella Crafts
I loved making these cards but it really tested my creative skills trying to make each one different and matching coloured card but I think I succeeded. I just adore making the stick pins, an idea from Christina at http://flowersribbonsandpearls.blogspot.co.uk/, a visit to her blog and Card Making Magic site was a great source of new ideas for me.
I have not been able to comment on many blogs lately. The weather we had was really good and I spend a lot of afternoons walking the dogs while it was quite mild. We all needed the exercise after being couped up over the last couple of months. We even made it down the beach a couple of times which the dogs love. They enjoy the sand but luckily they only get their toes wet as they are not too keen on the water, boy am I glad of that.
I am off to the SECC at Glasgow tomorrow to a Hobbycrafts show and have a few pennies saved and a list of items I really need. I am taking my friends daughter Alisha who is 10 with me. She missed out in October as she had tonsillitis and could not go but I received a message saying it is all go for tomorrow. We will have fun browsing and buying, a real good day out for us.
Enough of my ramblings now ladies just hoping that you are all well and fit and I can see you have all been busy. I will be sure to comment more often now that the rush is over.
Take care and wrap up warm.
