Final Mother's Day Cards.....

And at last some I'm happy with!               In blue .... or Lemon with embossing ......

Lilac embossing....

 Lemon embossed ....

And some I had textured card for so no embossing required, in lilac .........

And the Blue ....

So if these sell as well as last year's should manage a donation to Breast Cancer Care. 

Think by now you'll be familiar with the tools I've used and am so tired tonight so won't list the recipe, lol. 

Thanks for looking.

Sarah Kay in Purple


Purple is my favourite colour so had to try one of my Mother's Day cards in that! lol. 


Sarah Kay stamped image coloured with Promarkers. Punched flowers with Kuretake and a.n. other which I can't remember at the mo, Papermania brad, backing paper is from the Dovecraft Amethyst - Floral Prints pack. Flower spacer is from a load I bought on ebay. Used some netting have had from my dressmaking days instaed of a ribbon just for a change. Pearls from stash.

If I manage to have time to photograph any other MD cards I try I'll post them later but am running out of time as well as ideas and am not there yet! Watch this space.

Thanks for looking.

Mother's Day .... again!


Thought would try white and navy for a change.


Silhouettes in navy this time. Martha Stewart edge punch and Nestabilities Labels.

Can you tell how I'm struggling with the MD cards but determined to use the Pocket Silhouettes cos I love 'em! Did a second one with just a slight variation....


With a Personal Impressions swirl clear stamp in silver.

Mother's Day ........


My 2nd attempt at the charity Mother's Day cards. lol. This one was quite time consuming so although I like it I decided not to repeat it.


Stampin Up Pocket Silhouettes, Nestabilities Label, punched heart petal flowers, Martha Stewart edge punch, fern leaves from a corner punch and just picked out the little bits I needed, flat backed beads are Robin's Nest.

Thanks for looking.

Blue Butterfly


 I usually make Mother's Day cards to sell in the office and all proceeds go to Breast Cancer Care. Normally I have one 'good idea' (i.e. quick & easy to make and easily repeated several times!) and make several in different sizes/colours depending on my stash. This year I've had several 'ideas' ... none of which am too sure of so there are several really different cards being taken in to the office. Hope they can all find one they like. It's the only time of year I make cards to sell because of the charity but sometimes my mind is just a blank! Anyway ... this is one of them....
Freebie vase print from Pink Petticoat, coloured with Promarkers. Martha Stewart edge punch, butterfly (had them so long can't remember where from, sorry) and ribbon from stash. Will try to load the others later and let you know which, if any, is the one I've chosen for my Mum & Mum-in-law.

Thanks for looking.
