Mum in a Million

Hi I am with a  Mothers day card destined for my mum of course. She doesn't view my blog so no chance of spoiling it for her!

This is a 7 inch square. I cut a heart aperture (Spellbinders) in a white piece of card that was then cut with a triple embossed square (Phil Martin) and layered over another piece of card that I stamped with the script stamp. The whole panel is mounted on 3D foam on my base card.

The peony stamp is from a Crafters Companion set and I stamped on to watercolour card and coloured with my watercolour pens, and then fussy cut the image and mounted it on 3D pads.

The butterfly again is Crafters Companion but cut in vellum and colored with the same colours as the flower. It was then liberally sprinkled with glamour dust to make it sparkle and some pearls for its body.

The sentiments are computer generated and after great deliberation were finally placed flat on the card but edged with a black pen for a bit of contrast.

and the inside.....

The bud stamp is from the same stamp set as the main flower, coloured very pale with the same two colours  and the verse is computer generated.

Well the sun is shining here at present but boy is it windy...battering the daffodils and tulips that are fighting to declare Spring. Hubby is desperate to get in the garden but it is still so wet from all the rain of late.

Thank you to those of you who left me comments on my last very much appreciated as our time is precious, and Thank you if you are reading this, the same applies, I appreciate the time you give to my humble ramblings.

Stay safe and well everyone and have a good's almost  here.

Hats , Flowers and Pigs!

Hi everyone..whizzing in with a quick post to show you the makes from card group last month.

After a 3 month break it was a bit hard to get back in to the swing of it all...I think people wanted to catch up really.......... however little time for chat, there was a lot to do and most of probably all of us brought homework away with us.

Here's mine after a few finishing tweaks.......

No idea who's make of stamp this is...but coloured with copics and a bit of decoupage on the hat.

Polka Doodles flowers on this one.....

and it opens at the top.

I think these flowers are Honey Doo......

This is a Pink Ink stamp and sentiment ..don't we all believe we could?

and lastly more Polka doodles flowers.....

a lot of colouring involved as you can see...kept us all busy and ..quiet!!

I hope you are all keeping safe and well from fires, tornadoes, floods and viruses.....and anything else that threatens to make us suffer.

Still sorting here...the loft mainly...and still falling over stuff in the craft! How does one accumulate SO MUCH stuff?

Keep positive everyone...I am off to the hospital for neck injections today so crafting will be off limits for a couple of days but see you soon with my Mothers Day card for mum.

Take care ...we alter the clocks at the end of the month in the UK.. :)
Happy crafting

Love Carole xx
