Its been a quiet relaxing day today and just wanted to pop in and wish you all a Happy Mother’s Day!

Here are the cards I made for my mum & mother in law.

Mothers Day Flower

They were inspired by one my good friend Kerri showed me today. This first one is a simple 2 layer card.

The flower accent stamped on whisper white with purely pomegranate and layered onto a scalloped piece of purely pomegranate done using the new Scallop Circle punch. I just love that punch – and I am just so in love with the new in colours so expect to see more using them – especially when I get the other 3 colours!

Mother's Day with Glitter

This next one is for my mum and again the same general design just a little different with different elements.

Not sure if you can see it in the post but I’ve stamped the swirly bit (not sure what to call it sorry) twice – first in Sahara Sand and then over the top and offset in old olive to give it a bit of a dropped shadow effect. I’ve also put a dot of Crystal Effects in the centres of the flowers and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds over the top to make the centres sparkly and who doesn’t like a bit of glitter on a card?? I sure the mums like them! I also love that Mother’s Day stamp – so classy & elegant.

Now I also wanted to share with you what Emily made last night. Emily has always loved play doh and plasticine and loves to create things with them and I was so in awe of what she did and all the detail she put into these.

catHere we have the cat and she soooo loves cats.

Notice the whiskers? and check out the food bowl – water and dry food so he dont go hungry or thirsty!caitlyn

Next we have the older sister Caitlyn doing what she does best and thats watch TV – she’d sit and watch it all day if she was allowed (and she isnt!) Notice the remote control on the table? She’s even put the dvd & video player into the cabinet under the TV – you can just see the orange bits sticking out.


Now of course we couldnt have all this with out mum could we? here I am at the computer (obviously writing a post to this blog!)

Do you see the green brush? its even got bristles!!

Yes I do usually have a brush on my desk as with two girls I tend to brush hair alot!dad

Last but not least is dear old dad! Now look at Dad’s chair and yes thats how it normally is with the foot rest out!

Then you have his table there complete with Fish tank, mouse for his laptop and drawers for his ‘things’

This child is a little too clever and very creative! Now if only she’d be creative and tidy her room! Then maybe she could teach her sister how to tidy hers as well!!

Have a great day everyone!



  1. Wow, Leonie, you have a little artist in the making there for sure. The cards look awesome too!
