More Mothers Day

Hi everyone!

... Still no baby! Haha! Its D-Day tomorrow!
I'm still soldiering on with my giant swollen feet and my carpal tunnel hahaha! Pregnancy is so glam :D
I've got another of my mothers day cards I created to show you.

I do apologise for the shockingly poor photography, I was in a bit of a hurry so left it too late and the sun was in the worst position.. excuses, excuses I know :D

I loved this image which was a generous freebie from the wonderful SJ at SJ's Musing. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to make it into a card for my mum :D

The sentiment is created in Word, I can't remember the font sorry!
Its matted onto distress ink-ed paper and then onto some gorgeous Pink Petticoat gingham papers and then onto some more yellow stash and finally a papermania kraft card blank! Phew thats a lot of layers!

Hopefully next time I post it will be with details of my little munchkin who doesn't seem to be in a hurry to leave :D

Take care!
Lots of Love

You're Wonderful

Evening everyone!
Hope you are all keeping well, and sorry for my absence!
I have developed Carpal Tunnel in my wrist so crafting is even harder now boo hoo!
Still no baby! A week til D-Day!

However I do have some cards to share with you!
As it was mother's day in the UK yesterday I managed to create some cards for my mum, my mother-in-law and my grandma-in-law.

This is one for my grandma-in-law.
It uses the beautiful Study of Poppies from Wax Fruit Company.
The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat.

I coloured it using promarkers. Always up for trying new techniques, I was really tired when I was doing it so its a little bit wishy washy, but hey we need to start somewhere!

Believe it or not, the white background has been embossed, annoyingly the sun was very bright and it seems to have washed away a lot of the detail whilst I was trying to photo it in a hurry!

Anyway, I hope to update you all soon with details of the little one!
I do have a few more cards to share in the meantime!

Lots of Love
