Mother's Day #3

Good morning visitors.

I'm posting rather early for me today. I'm really suffering with back and leg pain right now (which is making things really awkward crafting-wise!) so whilst I wait for my painkillers to kick in I thought I would post my latest card. (It's about all I can do just now). 

In true 'Blue Peter' style, todays card is 'one I made earlier' ☺

The supplies used for todays card

* Make & create Sweet garden roses design pad 
* Spellbinders 5x7 matting basics A 
* Sue Wilson/Creative Expressions Gemini dies Pavo 
* Cheery Lynn tea rose medium 
* Sue Wilson / Creative Expressions stitched flags 
* Crafters companion Beatrix Potter sentiments stamp 
* Distress inks Worn lipstick/spun sugar/crushed olive
* Headpin/beads/ribbon and embelishment from my stash

Todays card is another Family card. This will be going to my Mother-in-law. I always try to fit my personal cards in first, buy usually post them last here, just so I know they won't be seen by the recipient before the event. 

I think the style of this card would suit quite a few occasions and I can see me using it again, possibly a Wedding card?

Well that's me done for today folks. I'm going to hobble around the house now, try to loosen things up enough to get some crafting done!

I hope you like my offering for today. Thank you for visiting and please stop by again soon x

  5. Hi jo
    Just found your blog I must say fantastic cards I love how you make your own flowers. Please can you tell me what kind of paper you use to make them they are very natural mine seem to come out very stiff can't seem to mold them like you your help will be most appreciated regards Debbie

    1. Thank you Debbie. I tend to use a nice quality, thick paper rather than card, as I've found it shapes much better. I can't give you any specifics as it was gifted to me unpackaged. I hope that's been a little help x
