Mothers Day is coming!!!



Morning All

Well the sun is shining in my craft room and I am so glad summer is on its way.

Mothers day is coming again, I love this time of year, it gives you chance to craft for the family again which I love making and sending cards to!!

This is a keepsake boxed drawer card which I made for my lovely mum, she lives very far away and even though we talk on the phone, I do miss her dearly.

This is 6 x 6 in size and let me tell you I dont think I will be making another!!! 3 attempts at making the drawer so it fitted perfectly.  I have used some papers that I know she will like and she loves flowers so thought I would get the pearl spray out and give those some shimmer with some added butterflies and decorative leaves.  Of course my signature bow and that dazzling sparkling ribbon I couldnt resist.  The corners are of course my fav mariannes, I made the pins myself, was going to add more but after the 2 and a half hours it took to make I was all crafted out!!!

The drawer embellishment I made also out of a brad and spacer I think it fits this perfectly

Thats all for now, please leave a comment it would be great to hear what you think!!

Kenny K Birthday

Hello All, Well another day another card~!!

This is for my niece I hope she likes it!! I thought that this image is perfect for the girlie teenager and hope its not too revealing...  I just love these images they are so trendy especially for the latest generation!!

I started off with a 6 x 6 Card blank and have used the lovely my minds eye papers from this is from one of the huge pads, although I dont think you can see much of it... Lol...

The image is kenny k, I have edged it with a glorious stamp from the stempelglede grunge collection which I think finishes off the edges just right. I have threaded the gorgeous ribbon and also added some lovely guipure lace which I sewed onto the card with my sewing machine, I find this easier than glueing!! I have stitched around the edge, the black is very bold so I am not too sure about it but it seems to go together nicely.

The roses are from WOC and the other flowers are from the works shop which they do have in most town centres.  I have used a heart charm and chain, threaded decorative pins which i have made myself by adding the decorative cups.  

The sentiment is from lili of the valley I love those round stamps they cover so many occasions and are just fab.

That is all for today, if you have any questions please do get in touch, As I am still relatively new to blogging please do leave a comment it would be great to hear your comments.

Happy Crafting
