Happy Mother’s Day

Well, this Sunday is Mother’s Day, as you all know 🙂  And this is one of the best reasons why I love to make cards, because I can give my mum a handmade Mother’s Day card this weekend (well, post it to her as she lives a long way away!).  Aren’t all mums obliged to love the handmade creations of their children??  I’m sure that obligation is meant to never stop!! LOL!!

I’ve used the gorgeous stamp set, A Rose is a Rose, and I’ve made another shaker card.  Too much fun!!  The cardstock colours I’ve used are Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss textured with the usual Whisper White.  The new Kiwi Kiss ribbon is sooo soft!  beautiful!  The stamped flowers that frame the shaker square are stamped in Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss and Old Olive.  The rose in the centre is stamped in Barely Banana and So Saffron.  And I’ve filled the shaker square with Chunky Sprinkles – gotta have some bling!  The sentiment comes from the fantastically priced Wonderful Favourites.

Enjoy your Mother’s Day this weekend, in the way it means the most to you 🙂

Thanks for looking 🙂

A beautiful new baby

Congratulations, Michele and David! On 9 April 2009, my dear friend Michele gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Elise (beautiful name, isn’t it?). Elise is so lucky because besides having fantastic parents, she also has two big sisters to dote on her.

This is the card I made for Elise …

It’s a shaker card … with SU pink chunky sprinkles to shake in the window. I’ve always had a facsination when looking at cards with sprinkles in newsagents. Do you ever find that? Now I can’t believe I’ve made one! Need to pinch myself … LOL!!

Around the outside of the card, I’ve used my new A Rose is a Rose stamp set … it’s so elegant! I’ve stamped the two step big rose in Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink. I love love love it!! LOL!!

And in the shaker window I’ve stamped the sentiment from God’s Blessings in Riding Hood Red and butterflies from Priceless in Pink Pirouette. I tied the coordinating Pink Pirouette striped grosgrain ribbon around the base of the card …

I love the Flower Fusion Too felt flowers … and the new designer buttons!! They coordinate perfectly …

And inside I stamped the rose in the same colours and used the word “wonderful” from Wonderful Favourites … and the words “new baby” from the new Level 2 hostess stamp set … Occasions for All. The sentiment is so true … Elise is a Wonderful New Baby :))
