Best Mummy In The World!

After a little rain this morning we finally have sunshine again :)

My next card was made by request for a good friend at work, he wanted a lovely Mother's Day card using a photo of his son..... Aint he adorable :)

The main card was from my stash and the gorgeous blue card I used for matting is from the lovely Hunkdory range. I took the photo in to my photo editing software and popped it in to a round frame with what looks like an inked edge and the sentiment was also created on PC. The backing paper and Forever Friends bear were from the FF Triple CD collection, with editing software I resized them to fit my card.

To finish the card I added some lovely paper flowers (also from my stash) and added a little gem to the centers.

I hope Mummy likes here card :)

I am entering this card in to the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations - Mother's Day / Mum
Papertake Weekly - It's a Mom Thing
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Flowers for Mum
Totally Papercrafts Challenge - Cuddly & Cute

Thank you for stopping by and looking :)

Where Flowers Bloom!!

Sunday already... Where does the time go and to be robbed of an hour too.. he he.. I completely forgot the clocks went forward last night!!

On to my card... As soon as I saw this image I fell in love with it. It's just stunning and is from the very talented Paulette over at "Create with TLC" and would you believe this is actually a freebie and to get your hands on it you can click here.

This image it just perfect for a stunning black & white card!!

I have used a blank 6x6 card, black card and white card from my stash. I took the image in to my editing programme and resized to fit my card and added a black border.

Simply matted some black card stock straight on to card base then took the main image and cut out and matted on to white card stock.

The flower itself has been decoupaged (printed several copies of image) and then finished the flower by giving it a light coating of glitter using my spray and sparkle which you can get from Crafters Companion.

Unfortunately the picture does not show the lovely sparkle on the flower :(

To finish the card I added a lovely white ribbon and some gems both of which were from my stash.

My inspiration for the card came from a very good friend, unfortunately she has not been well recently and I think this sentiment just says it all "Where flowers bloom so does hope".

I am entering this card in to the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge Blog - For A Special Lady (my friend)
A Spoon Full Of Sugar - Ribbons,Pearls,Rhinestones & Flowers
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Monochromatic

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and have a look :)

Bubbles of Love!

Inside the collection you will find some gorgeous images, frames, papers & lots more :) the main backing paper was from Bearly Mine Designs. Donna creates some fantastic papers and you will always find something to suit your project, you can check out all the gorgeous papers by clicking here.

To finish the card I used one of Paulette's lovely sentiments. As soon as I saw this sentiment I knew it was the one for this kit  :) it is from the "Anytime is Bubble Time" collection which you can find here.

Butterfly Kisses....

With the task of making a card for a dear friend to brighten their day I thought this would be perfect... The vibrant colours and delightful little butterfly are enough to make anyone smile :) certainly made me smile!

For this card I used the "Butterfly Kisses" kit which can be found here.

I printed the backing paper, topper and decoupage layers from the kit on to super smooth card. Once I had cut all the layers of the butterfly I decided a little sparkle was required so with my quickie glue pen I went round the edges of the butterflies wings on all layers and added some crystal glitter. Just enough sparkle but not too much if you ever can have too much he he :) Unfortunately the picture does not show the lovely subtle sparkle.

The main card along with pink & green card are from my stash. I also added some flowers (again from my stash) and finished them by adding some stickles glitter glue in the centers.

I am finally taking the plunge and will be entering this card in to the following challenges:
(please go easy on me this is my first time of entering challenges he he)

Miami Doodles - Celebrate Spring (thought the colours used would be perfect)
Stampin With The Dragon - Bring On Spring
Wags n Whiskers - Spring Creations
Paper Take Weekly - Three of Something (3 papers & 3 flowers)

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a peek.

Forever Friends!!

Morning all,

Well the sun has stopped shining :( and we now have gray skies!!

I wanted to share with you a card I recently made for a very special friend whom I have never met in person. Although we have never met I am hoping one day we will have the chance to. This person is amazing and will do anything to help anyone and that's what makes her so special. Unfortunately she is suffering will ill health at the moment and I really do wish I lived closer so I could stop by and help out but it is not to be so I decided to make up a little package and pop it in the post in hope that it would brighten her day :)

The parcel contain various bits and bobs which I knew she would be able to use and this lovely little card which was just my way of saying thank you for everything she has done.

Recently I caught the glitter bug and I know this person loves glitter too so thought I would combine it in the card, this is also the first time I have used flowers too - for the middles I used my stickles glitter glue... Yup more glitter lol, can't wait to receive my Spray & Sparkle I recently ordered. Lookout everyone he he!!

Anyways, I just wanted to share this card with you all :)

Blooming Hearts!

This next card features a kit from the lovely Crafty Gals called "Blooming Heart" Triple Easel Card and you can find it here.

Tell ya they really do know how to make high quality kits that will leave you saying "WOW".

As with all of the Crafty Gals kits they come with absolutely everything you need to make the complete card including a coordinating envelope and their attention to detail is amazing.

I just love these triple easel's!! Within this kit there are the lovely verse messages for either side of the main topper but as always thinking of you the Crafty Gals have included blank ones just in case you wish to add your own messages.

Even the inside of this card has been thought off!

Hope you will enjoy viewing this card as much as I did :)

I have to say a HUGE thank you to Karen for sharing this one with us :)
