Mother's Day Part One

I was inspired by a card in a recent Cards magazine which showed a white embossed damask print which I thought looked so pretty. I decided to give it a go myself but I'm not thrilled with the end result. I think it is missing some stamping at the top and the embossing powder I managed to find didn't give a nice thick white finish like I wanted. I like the flower decoration and my Martha Stewart punched edge but it just doesn't 'do it' for me, however I hope my MIL likes it.

I hope to be back with a part 2 with the card I am making for my mum. Do you have a card you have made that you can share? I'd love to see it!

Easter-y Goodness - Crafty Templates

I love Easter, it's always the sign that spring is here, even though the weather at the moment has hampered the spring flowers, I can't wait for them to come in to bloom. Also, Easter = chocolate, yum yum yum :)

I loved the cute bunny from Crafty Templates this month. I paired him with the adorable Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety papers, carrot themed paper? it was begging to be used with a bunny!

I used him, or should I say her this time on a little mini egg gift bag for a special little girl I know, I just love these Making Memories Cosmopolitan papers, I've had them for a while and love to dig them out now and again for a project, they are just so pretty.

Lastly this little chickadee from the templates, he also worked perfectly with the CC papers! Now I need to get cracking on a Mother's Day card, I made one for my MIL which I'll share tomorrow, I've been pondering on what to do for my mum's card, I think I just need to pull out all my favourite pretty bits and pieces and see what happens :)
