Mother's Day Cards

I didn't think I'd be making any Mother's Day cards this year but a friend at work asked me to make cards for her Mum and Mil. She gave me the images and verses and left me to it so I decided the make them as easel cards inspired by the very talented Bev

These are the card fronts

And the inserts

New Home Cards

We've had a lot of movement at work recently with three of my colleagues moving home.

The first is still my favorite (and I know I've shown it before but I love it)It was cased from a card I saw in a shop. I just new it would be perfect for the Stampin Up Good Neighbours set from thier Sale-a-bration which has unfortunatley finished:

This one is a cute cat image with computer printed greeting. I also cut the cat with a circle punch and put it on a bottle top and glazed it for an extra embellishment

This was for a horse loving colleague. Computer printed greeting and horseshoes. The image is decoupaged but it doesn't show.

Tart & Tangy Flower

I love the Stampin Up Tart and Tangy set of fruit stamps but as soon as I got it I thought flowers! I made this topper for a friend to show what I meant. I used the stem of the cherry stamp upside down and the flower is the lemon/orange slice which I've trimmed around the petals and shaped. The cute butterfly is from the Flight of the Butterfly set

PeeJay's Challenge

Pam has a great a challenge on her blog - to use one of her freebie sheets. There are some great sheets to choose from too but I couldn't resist this adorable black labrador with matching backing paper. I've made a criss cross card with a "gusset" to allow for the pyramage.
