Another card for Mum

Hi all sorry I did not post last week, I have no excuse......
This week however not sure where it went but it did. My poor Mum had a fall on Wednesday and has broken her shoulder and is a bit poorly at the moment so she is in St Hellier hospital, so I thought I would make her a card to show off to the nurses etc.

I was a very lucky lady yesterday and to Ashford International Hotel on the Lili of the Valley colouring class with the lovely Jackie and Bev...  wow what a day we had it was fab! more on that later. I had just the stamp to do for my poor Mum, coloured with copics, Polycromo pencils, Doodlebug paper with Martha Stewart deep edge punch and butterfly. The message  is Hero Arts on a stamping up scallop circle punch. Happy crafting and I hope to be back soon. Take care all xx

My mums card

Hello all I hope you are all enjoying another long bank holiday weekend, I could get quite used to this and along with the lovely weather I had an added bonus of my Birthday yesterday. Thanks for all the lovely cards I  received I will show the hand made ones later in the week.
This is the card I made for my Mum for Mothers day but as usual I gave it away before taking a photo, I seem to be doing that a lot lately...... but at least I could get this one back to take a piccie for you.

 I was really pleased with the finished card. The peach flower we made in a much bigger in a class with Jane Gill but I cut all the sizes down and came out with a smaller/tiddly version, using scalloped circles cut up and wound round tweezers to curl and then stuck to daisy petals. The cream flowers were from just two layers of a Woodware punch I am not sure what it was called sorry! the leaves are various Leone em punches and the words are sizzix Wingo Zingo. Oh and I nearly forgot the background edge Martha Stewart arches all round the page.
Here is a closer view of the flowers. Its a bit windy here today down in the south but the sun is still shining. Enjoy you day and happy crafting x
