Happy Mother's Day

Hello Friends, hope you've had a great week.

It's been a 'difficult' week this week.
My Uncle passed away suddenly.
 My Mum had to go into hospital and  then my Dad was rushed to hospital with a suspected heart attack. It was good news, they are both ok now.

Here is my card I made my lovely Mum for Mother's Day which is  today in the UK.

I have just discovered Wplus9 stamps and dies and this wreath is one of their dies.
The beautiful and delicate 'Mother' diecut is from Clearly Besotted.

A mixture of magnolia and sizzix flowers and 'love'is by Paper Smooches.
My little bow is by Mama Elephant. (Slight obsession with little bows!!! Guess they are quick and easy to make when little craft time available!)

I didn't take a picture of the gift bag. It had lots of feathers and little bows on and this is the tag I made to add to it.

I have had a lovely day with my hubby and son.
They took me to a craft shop and then for lunch, followed by a game of golf in the sunshine.
My perfect day.

Happy Mother's Day Mum!

Thanks for visiting.

BBTB2 - Flowers

Hi, Happy Monday.
Hope you had a great weekend.

Today is a new challenge over at BBTB2 and Pam has asked us to use flowers.

I used Creative Cards for the card and envelope at 5".

The little banner in the middle is from MFT Blueprints 13 (love these)
and the sentiment is from My creative Time.

There is beautiful inspiration from the DT so do check them out and come and play along.

In Flight..

Hi, I know, 3 posts in a row let alone a week! lol.
Today I have a card to share which I am entering into Clearly Besotted's In Flight challenge.

Paper smooches for the clouds and MFT Blueprints 13 for the stitched background.

Thanks for looking.

BBTB2 Headphones

Hi, how are you doing?
Sorry I haven't been around, family life is busy and blogger hasn't been playing nicely.
I haven't been able to upload any photos to my blog but now I've changed over to Google Chrome all seems well!

Today our talented Michelle has challenged us to use a musical note over at BBTB2.

I'm trying to only make projects that I can use and with so many teenage boy birthdays around this seemed like a good idea...

Music and headphones feature heavily in our house! Okay, maybe less of the headphones part!! lol.
I used Wild Card 2 for all the cuts at 5" and added ink,doodling and 3d foam.
Oh, and enamel dots!...slightly addicted to these!!

Do check out the DT girls,their projects are just fabulous!

Hi Everyone, hope you are having a fab weekend.

Just popping in to share a tag I made using Paper Smooches My Guy dies and stamps and the stitched tag die. I used the inlaid diecut technique and it came out great.

I am entering this over at Paper Smooches Sparks challenge - Anything goes.

BBTB2 - Easter Chick Box

Hi, how was your weekend?
Is it me or do they fly by? lol.
Today is a new challenge over at BBTB2 and we have a new member, Diana, to welcome to the team. Welcome aboard Diana!
 For the challenge we  were asked to use our favourite cricut cartridge to make any project.
Well this was a tough one as I have 3 favourite cartridges and 2 of them are really old and I still 'go to' them.
1. Doodlecharms
3. Art Philosophy
Two of my most Pin'd projects are my triangular Santa Box and my Reindeer Treat Box.
So I pulled out TBBM and made this cute Easter Chick gift box.
Isn't she a cutie? The triangular box is cut at 6" from TBBM and the head is from Create a Critter2 at 4" and I cut the body off and saved the wings.
The face is from Peachy Keen Everyday Assortment. The sentiment is from Color Me Happy  by My Creative Time and the loopy leaf die is from Paper Smooches. I hand made the felt flower.
Easter Chickie has a friend...will reveal soon! Heehee!
Do check out all the inspiration from the Design Team and come and link up your favourite cart project.
I am entering this over at FCCB - Pick a Holiday.
Show it off Saturday - Little Scrap Pieces.
Thanks for stopping by.
