Hello all, hope that everything is well for you. I thought I'd make a couple of Mother's Day cards ready for the 6th March. Sorry about the wonky pic, lighting was very bad today so while I concentrated on that, didn't realise my card wasn't straight..oh dear! On my card is a 'New' to me digi d/load from Crafters Companion website called Antique Chic from Hunky Dory, distressed the edges a bit. I stamped with a journalling stamp Basic Grey clear stamps in memento ink top right corner, then with an Elzybells stamp did the wording, die cut some flowers and layered them on, some grey ribbon from Wilko's, punched out layered butterfly, silver charm dangling, finished with glamour dust and sequins. I love the pink butterflies and the beautiful vintage look on this d/load I may do the others in this type too.

This is card showing a little of the inside.

Sentiment is Elzybells, the same vintage print is on the side....actually a happy mistake because I kept putting in a smaller sheet of paper and couldn't understand why it didn't print the rest...I think I wasn't too well that day.

I made a bit of an effort on the back by cutting a small patch from the printout, sticking it down and then stamped with my personal stamp over it. Just looks a little bit professional. So onto challenges which are several. Firstly CYP, Fab N Funky, Crafty Sentiments, Crafting from the heart, Stamping Sensations ( I hope there's enough of the stamping there), Cupcake Inspirations, Simon Says, Crafty Calendar, Crafting by designs, Get CreativeCCT, Creative Inspirations, Winter Wonderland, Glitter n Sparkle 'tic tac toe..stitiching, ribbon, glitter', The Paper Shelter, Let's create (layered flowers and butterfly), Crafty Catz...flowers made. Have a lovely day till next time, bye.
